Reliable and affordable

Saphir offers Semi-Automatic horizontal band saw that is 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 Machinery 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 metal band saw. They are well built, reliable and offer very advantageous features for the investment they represent. Saphir semi-automatic metal band saw is available in several sizes ranging from : 8” x 12” to 15.7” x 24”. Some models pivot on one side and others pivot on both sides.

We purchased a LAG G-TOP 185-3000 press brake to replace our 1988 Amada Promecam. Yves Garant and his team supported us very well in our decision making process. We had a major challenge to conciliate: need definition, technology evolution and budget. Garant Machinery sets itself apart with a wide range of products, exceptional technical expertise, a curiosity about the evolution of the market, very responsive from submission to after-sales service, and good customer service. Garant Machinery is an experienced business partner with whom we have done many projects in the past, and that we will consider in our future investments.

E. Buissières

All this while respecting the dates and our budget. Thank you.
