Section of iron meteorite after sawing

Bandsawing Meteorites

The company has been asked to cut a very wide variety of materials and objects in almost 40 years of subcontract sawing using bandsaw machines. Some jobs were completely unforeseen such as bandsawing meteorites! The company has cut three meteorites using a bandsaw - the Nantan, Henbury and the Steinbach. The sectioning of these rare meteorites has given universities, world-wide, an opportunity to research the composition of planets, and even to take a closer look at the centre of the earth.

1000lb concrete

(Non) Explosive success…. 1000lb sawing concrete filled test bomb!

This was a test cut using a metal cutting horizontal bandsaw and a carbide tipped bandsaw blade for a customer sawing concrete filled test bomb casing. Of course, we're never told why. In this case, cutting concrete, inclusive of aggregate etc., wouldn't be a normal application for a carbide tipped blade, however, as we were sawing a steel case at the same time, an abrasive blade was unlikely to survive.
