Mössner band saw machines only produce a narrow cut when processing abrasive materials. This ensures that material loss is kept to a minimum. The reduction of the chips volume saves energy and also reduces materials costs. Chips can be vacuumed up efficiently. The high possible cutting speed of the saw suits the different materials. High cutting heights are also possible. Different saw blade types, such as tool steel blades, carbide metal blades and diamond-tipped blades can easily be used.
