Fitting Saw Model 236


Model 236 Vertical Bandsaw

The Model 236 is our most popular vertical bandsaw for general industrial use. This bandsaw has a large throat capacity and strong 3-phase 2-horsepower motor to handle large, tough jobs. Despite its large capacity, the Model 236 is space efficient due to its 14-inch blade wheels and cantilever-mounted traveling table.

Model 236 Bandsaw Capabilities

The Model 236 vertical bandsaw is a workhorse machine for industries such as plastic pipe fabrication and all manners of plastics fabrication. This model is also referred to as a vertical block saw because it has the capability to cut a wide range of low and medium-density materials, such as rigid foam and insulation.

A bearing mounted moving table allows for straight cuts even with heavy or awkward pieces. The cantilever design of the table does away with floor mounted rails (the table surface is durable 12 Ga. Steel).

Vertical Bandsaw Applications

HDPE polyethylene and low density foam are two of the most popular applications. It is also commonly used for rigid foam shaping and graphite shaping

Benefits of Model 236 Bandsaw

As with all Forrest equipment, Model 236 is built to be rugged, reliable, and simple to maintain, providing decades of trouble-free service. For insulation fabricators, the saw includes special fittings to speed the fabrication of elbows, tees, and other fittings.

Forrest carries a large line of vertical bandsaws, but can build a custom bandsaw specifically for your application. Contact Forrest today to get started!
