Soitaab 3000mm gantry bandsaw

Soitaab-FriggiGantry capacity 3000 x 3000 x 8000 gantry bandsaw

Soitaab 3000mm gantry saw

The Soitaab gantry bandsaw is a versatile cutting system, with the following features:

  • Fast loading and setup of complex jobs
  • Simple loaded and unloading from a flat table
  • Horizontal, vertical and diagonal cutting reduced need to reset the job
  • Horizontal cuts along the entire stroke length
  • Solid build quality
  • High quality of the parts used


The structure is made of electric-weld and normalized steel thickness 0-60 with stiffening ribs that allow the basement to support in an excellent way the load it has to support. On the basement are placed two uprights which slide on ball guides covered with suitable defence. On the basement are placed the chip conveyor, the cooling tank, the hydraulic system, the cables and the services tubes. Thanks to a custom system the pieces are fixed in a very easy way.

Moving gantry (bow)

The gantry is made of welded and normalized steel up to 50mm thick. It is structured and tensioned to support the maximum load it is rated for (band tension 9000/12000 Kg).

On the gantry bandsaw it is possible to mount both 67 x 1,6 or 80 x 1,6 blades. The blade drive motor and gearbox is built into the gantry and all drive wheels protected behind large doors.The vertical movement is driven by ball screws and antifriction materials used for the gantry vertical guides. The vertical movement is driven by a stepper motor whose speed is adjustable from 0 to 2000 mm/min.Horizontal movement of the gantry is driven by another ball screw, gearbox and stepper motor and runs on linear bearings. The speed is adjustable from 0 to 3000 mm/min.The unique features of a gantry saw allow cutting in 90° range of directions from horizontal to vertical. The machine is provided with manual rotating 90° blade guides. These allow the machine to be set to cut either horizontaly or vertically. The control system provides feed the vertical and horizontal gantry drives to allow diagonal cuts to be performed.

Mobile Vices Group

No. 1 mobile vices group on portal (1 right and 1 left). The vices are made of hardened steel and they are sliding on precision guides in contact with antifriction material. Their motion is actuated by a dynamic cylinder on which it is possible to intervene to adjust the thrust pressure. On manual feeding every vice can be moved separately.

Blade Guides

Bearings and hard metal guide-plates, which are placed in very hard thickness material, allow a perfect band guide. The motion of the blade guide, to draw near the cutting piece, is actuated by a dynamic cylinder. They can rotate 90° to allow the lengthwise cut.


Super automatic

This model is a very versatile machine tool with three cutting axis. The axis are totally controlled by PLC and by an advanced electronics. The cutting process is continuously monitored by the software. The software, using cutting calculation subroutines guides the operator on optimal speed and feeds, reducing the possibility of errors. Once set up the cutting parameters are used to cut automatically similar materials and sections. The cutting programs, created by the operator, can be recalled according to the necessity and the can be secured by a password. These features enable the saw to perform consitently and to a high standard of performance.


Hydraulic system

The hydraulic system is build with very reliability materials (Aron o Berarma o Rexroth), and it provides for the machine services.

Electric equipment

They are located in a cabinet separated from the machine. The cabinet has got a window with a general switch provided with a door blockage to prevent the opening when the current is on. The equipments are connected to the systems side by a multipolar plug/tap. In the cabinet are located the logic to manage the machine cycle, the driving gears for the continuous variation of the blade speed rotation and the arc feeding.

Built according to the CE standard regulations.
