The S400PE is widely respected in professional joinery and cabinet-making workshops, and features a level of sturdiness and build-quality that sets it apart from other machines in its class. Cast iron bandwheels and precision upper and lower blade guides eliminate ‘wander’ to ensure accurate cuts both against the fence and through the material.

The Essential Machine
If there’s one power saw a busy workshop can’t live without then it’s a good bandsaw. A good machine will be solidly built, have a positive feel when setting up, and hold its settings to preserve accuracy.


TechSoft and SCM – Global Quality, Local Support
There is no shortage of makes and models to choose from these days, but not all machines are the same and even ‘trusted brands’ will not necessarily possess the quality that their badge suggests. To give schools and colleges the quality of machine they need at an affordable price, TechSoft are delighted to have entered into a partnership with the Italian company SCM for bandsaws and, indeed, our full range of woodworking machinery. SCM have been established for over 50 years and are now global leaders in the design, manufacture and supply of production machinery for all sectors of the furniture and construction industry. Products range from huge CNC-controlled machines for mass production, to the Minimax range of traditional machines for workshops, schools and colleges. All machines are built to the highest standards at SCM’s state-of-the-art plant in Rimini, and all undergo rigorous quality procedures to ensure years of reliable service. In the UK, SCM’s large and well established facility in Nottingham provides the assurance of speedy, and dedicated, service and support should it be needed.


Why Do I Need a Bandsaw?
Nothing beats a bandsaw for versatility. With the right blade you can cut any timber, most plastics, and even aluminium and cuts can be straight, curved or angled in any plane. Bandsaws will tackle deeper cuts than most saws so it is quite possible to ‘deep-rip’ wide boards into matching thinner boards, or even mill your own planks from heavier stock. Because blades are comparatively thin, the kerf (or cut-width) is thin so less of your precious material ends up as sawdust, and there is less waste for an extraction system to deal with. SCM bandsaws are built to high standards with secure blade-guide systems, rigid construction and solid, accurately machined castings. Using the fences and guides provided, they will achieve results every bit as accurate as a circular saw although (as with any bandsaw) the sawn surface will need attention to remove the fine saw marks.


Choosing the Right Bandsaw
By choosing a TechSoft Minimax bandsaw you can have confidence in knowing that your machine will perform superbly in all the applications outlined. Capacity is important and both our models are likely to have more than enough cut-depth. Throat depth is more of an issue and this will dictate cross-cut capacity which in turn largely governs the physical size of the machine. If a circular saw is available then the smaller S45NE bandsaw will probably be all that is needed and certainly adequate to deal with trimming and re-sawing in the classroom. The larger S600PE machine will be a better bet if basic timber preparation (including milling boards) is anticipated.
