The S 440P is the number one selling formula bandsaw in North America. This Italian designed and manufactured machine is considered the bandsaw to use for the most discriminating professionals and hobbyists alike. With engineering and design features found nowhere else, it is easy to see why this is the top selling machine in our formula lineup. Powerful single-phase motors (4.8hp), heavy-duty large cast-iron balanced wheels with a tongue and groove system for easy replacement of rubber tires, and robust cast iron and steel components with easy to use controls and unparalleled safety features make this the bandsaw of choice for thousands!
LARGE RESAW CAPACITY
The Formula S 440P has 17.3” resaw height as well as 16.3” cutting width. With this much capacity in such a compact machine, this makes it ideal for any small shop.
The Formula S 440P comes with upper and lower Europeans-style guides on the machine. These guides provide for quick and easy adjustments without the need for tools. They can be adjusted up or down to accommodate the tilting of the table. When you are not tilting the table, you can raise the guides all the way up to the lower table surface to decrease the distance between your guides, maintaining maximum stability through your cut.
HEAVY DUTY RIGIDITY
The Formula S 440P has a rigid, rectified steel guidepost with rack and pinion positioning for rapid and precise raising or lowering of the guides.
THICK CAST-IRON WHEELS
The Formula S 440P has thick cast iron wheels which are perfectly balanced to reduce vibration and produce a fly wheel effect to aid in the processing of your pieces.
The Formula S 440P has vulcanized tires that not only bonds the rubber tires to the wheel, but they become like one with them. This means a greater transfer of power, as well as making it nearly impossible to shred them if a blade breaks resulting in less wear and maintenance over their lifetime.
Our heavy-duty steel frames are the most rigid in their class and are designed to withstand the tension required for a carbide tipped blade.
Two dust ports are included on this band saw, not just one like most others. This helps ensure that you will capture more debris, as well as capture it more efficiently.
Solidity and Sturdiness
Very thick, cast iron wheels, as well as the worktable, running on sealed for life ball bearings.
Total safety machining with telescopic protections with rackwork to the blade.
A perfect cut result is assured by the top and bottom high precision blade guides. Practical machines suitable also to perform straight and tilted cuts on wood, plastic and aluminum.
