Frequently Asked Questions


Which Bandsaw is the Best?

At the moment we recommend the Kolbe range of bandsaws. As one of our sub contractors put it 'They are bomb proof'. To steal a well known phrase they are also 'reassuringly expensive' which means Kolbe are able to reinvest in the continual improvement of their machinery,

They have produced a simple range that includes single phase machines through to very high volume production.

How much does a Bandsaw Cost

Bandsaws for retail stores range from £1900 to £4500 plus VAT

For medium sized catering butchers the prices go up to approximately £9500 plus VAT

The very largest bandsaws cost between £12,000 to £30,000 plus VAT

How often should I service my Bandsaw?

We recommend a bandsaw should be serviced by a qualified technician every 4- 6 months.

They are the most dangerous of all the food processing equipment so they need to be regularly maintained to minimise the risk of accidents

What type of blades should I use?

It will depend on the machine but we suggest the best blades you can get.

We supply blades by Burton Saw but Dakin Flathers and Atlantic Services also make good quality blades

There are a number of configurations avialable for blades so speaking to one of our advisers will help understand your requirements and enable us to find you the right match

If you fill out the enquiry form on this page then our bandsaw experts will ensure we match your machine with the best type of blade available.

What size machine do I need?

It all depends on your production volume and what you intend to cut.

If you are cutting a lot of very hard bone then you will need a more powerful machine.

Also if you are cutting large objects you need to make sure the cutting height will allow the product to pass through the blade.

Other factors to consider are where the machine will be placed and the power requirement as some machines may require an upgraded power supply which can add to the cost.

Can I get a single phase machine?


Many of the small to medium sized models are available in single phase

They generally cost a bit more than their 3 phase counterparts.

Do you offer service plans?

Yes we have comprehensive planned preventative maintenance contracts available all designed to keep your production running smoothly

Our network of engineers can cover the whole of the UK.

Do you install the machine?

Yes when we quote for a machine we offer three levels of pricing to suit all needs.

What is a Bandsaw?

A bandsaw is an industrial machine for cutting various food products.

A blade runs around two (or three) wheels at speed so as the product is pushed towards the blade it cuts it quickly without producing too much waste.

Can you process frozen product?

Yes the medium to large bandsaws are capable of cutting frozen products including those with hard bone.

What is the warranty?

It varies from each manufacturer but generally the industry standard is 12 months parts warranty.

We offer additional warranty cover to include labour and extensions over 12 months. Details of this will be included in any quote you receive from us.

What is Planned Preventative Maintenance?

Sometimes called service contracts our engineers will come and inspect your machine and conduct a service based on the manufacturers guidelines.

We change all wearable parts and these are designed to be changed regularly in order to protect the more expensive parts of the machine.

What are the most common faults?

9 times out of 10 most issues can be avoided if the operators change the blades more regularly

Blunt blades mean the machine has to work harder to cut the meat through and this can cause unecessary wear on the wheels and other moving parts and as a result the blade comes off.

Water ingress is a common fault where plugs and buttons are jet sprayed.
