Reliable and affordable

Saphir offers Semi-Automatic 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 metal band saws.  They are well built, reliable and offer very advantageous features for the investment they represent.  Saphir semi-automatic band saws are 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.
