KASTO Block and Plate Sawing Machines

Is it your job to cut different dimensions from different plates and blocks from your existing material using the longitudinal cutting method? Does the majority of your cutting tasks consist of cutting light to medium blocks or plates?

Then you will find the right sawing machine for your cutting task here. By utilizing the longitudinal cutting method, KASTO block and plate sawing machines make it possible to configure different cross-section dimensions from billets and plates, rectangular or flat materials.


  • Ideal for cutting remnant pieces
  • The footprint is reduced by approx. 50% since the machine moves instead of the workpiece.
  • The traversing and pivoting operating panel guarantees maximum overview and safety.
  • Highly dynamic and excellent material handling
  • The machine is installed on the floor and can be repositioned if needed.
  • Integrated powered chip removal brush, coolant system and chip conveyor (discharge level 745 mm)
  • Cutting length from 2,100 up to 4,100 mm in 1,000 mm increments
  • Cutting depth preselection

KASTO Block Bandsaws: Efficient Large Dimension Cutting

Blocks, Plates, Notching Cuts: With KASTO Block Bandsaws

Specifically designed for longitudinal cutting, the KASTO Block Bandsaw is the right choice for cutting different dimensions from blocks or plates; squares or flats. This principle is perfectly suited to trim plate layers and to perform notching cuts. With the use of bi-metal or carbide tipped saw blades, all material qualities – from aluminium to difficult to cut materials – can be handled with superior cutting performance. The KASTO Block Bandsaws have proven applications in steel mills and steel service centres – as well as in the tool and die industry

Cutting Lengths up to 12.000 mm!

KASTO Block and Plate Saws are available in cutting heights from 360 mm to 1.860 mm. Depending on table length, maximum cutting lengths from 2.000 mm to 12.000 mm are possible.All machines offer an infinitely variable remote adjustment of the blade speed via plus-minus keys at the operating panel. A wide accessory range of material handling, measuring and clamping devices completes the adaptation possibilities. For example, optional measuring stops with digital display make the set-up process faster, mechanical clamping devices lock different material formats safely onto the supporting table, hydraulically lifting and lowering roller conveyors or hydraulic ball lifting tables allow fast positioning of the heaviest workpieces.

Economic, Versatile and Space-Saving

The KASTO Block and Plate Bandsaws utilize the longitudinal cutting method. Under this design principle, the saw unit moves with pretensioned side-mounted rollers on precisely machined rails. The workpiece is locked on the saw table. This reduces the machine footprint by approx. 50 %, resulting in lower space costs. The fully welded, distortion-free construction of the saw head, with adjustable height of the blade guides, ensures quiet running and vibration-free working for accurate results, shorter cutting times and longer tool life. The electronically controlled saw feed guarantees short cutting times because it can be optimally adapted to material quality and material cross section. The saw blade speed is also infinitely variable.

Designed and Engineered for People and Technology

Low in Price – Outstanding Performance

The KASTObloc or KASTOplate provide an excellent balance in price and accuracy. The “light“ version of the KASTObbs is costfavourable with superior performance: This machine has all the advantages of the “big one“ – the same feed unit, same cutting performance and same cutting accuracy as well as same very easy access. All workpieces on the table can be reached by hand. Coolant container and chip conveyor are integrated into the table; the length of the chip conveyor is identical with the saw length.

Safe Handling

The KASTObloc or the KASTOplate is the ideal machine for cutting smaller block dimensions or lower plate weights – (up to 6 tons). The optimum handling aids of the KASTObloc or KASTOplate are ideally suited for cutting-up remnants. A 1 ton block can be moved with just one finger. The moving and swivelable operating panel ensures clear overview and safety
