Saphir offers metal band saws that are better adapted to the North American market, mainly because of their geometry. Saphir is a new division of Karmetal, a major manufacturer of band saws for over 20 years. Garant Machinerie has already installed many Karmetal saws in the past with a very high customer satisfaction rate. It is therefore with great pleasure that we once again offer this line of small and medium size band saws. They are well built, reliable and offer very advantageous features for the level of investment they represent. Saphir manual band saws are available in three main sizes: 7″ x 8″, 8″ x 9″ and 9″ x 12″. Some models pivot on one side and others pivot on both sides.
