Area of application

The band saw was used in factories for the manufacture of furniture and other types of joinery products. 

The Beronius B20 band saw has a robust, fully-cast, sturdily designed stand and journals featuring  ball bearings. The bed can be angled up to 40º. The rotating mechanism means it can be used for both splitting and cutting.

The rotary and linear saw blades are shielded by cast protective covers that are easily removable for blade replacement. The band saw is driven by an electric three-phase motor via a reduction gear.


Beronius band saws were made in a variety of models and sizes, starting in the 1880s, and were included in the company's product range until the end of the 1950s.
