The SCM Formula S 700P band saw is the fourth machine in SCM’s S400 – S900P series. The number refers to the diameter of the flywheels (so 700 mm in this case). It is the larger brother of the Minimax S 600P. It is the smaller sibling of the Formula S 800P.
The S 700P is the first of the three industrial-grade SCM band saws. Because of this it can also be used for materials other than wood on a professional level, and for extremely heavy resawing. It is only available with a three-phase motor, which can be upgraded to 5500 Watt.
The rubber tires around the wheels are attached with a tongue and groove system, making it very easy to replace them. This is much easier than glued on tires which is quite common on band saws.
The flywheels are nearly fully closed and made of cast iron, making them very heavy, which helps to maintain momentum during cutting.
