Vertical bandsaws are stationary machine tools with a bandsaw blade, which is welded onto a closed ring. Commonly, the bandsaw blade rotates over two motor-operated rollers. There are also machines available with three or four operating rollers. These are mainly used in the woodworking and metalworking industries, but can also be applied in other sectors. Depending on what they are used for, the tooth tips of bandsaw blades are made out of hard metal, satellite (various levels of hardness), HSS (high speed steel) or hardened steel. They are particularly suited to cut irregular or curvy forms. The term "vertical" refers to the state of the sawing belt. The even sawing movement leads to uniform and smooth cuts on the workpiece. Modern bandsaws can reach speeds of up to 1000m/min are electronically adjustable. The working table of vertical bandsaw can be fixed or manually adjusted. Better models also have a hydraulic setting.

Over time diverse specialised saws have developed. A new development in the 15 brought in the steel saw. During the industrialisation various motor operated saws came into use. Mobile bandsaw, including self-propelled models, have been used since the beginning of the last century in order to cut firewood into blocks. Vertical bandsaws increased the number of areas where a bandsaw could be used. Now it is a universal machine that can be used for trimming, separating and notching.
JAESPA Vertical bandsaw in use
There are two types of vertical bandsaws. Block bandsaw machines are used for the sawing of large panels and blocks. It can also process large, heavy workpieces that are usually automatically positioned using forceps. The vertical bandsaw is commonly used for the building of tools. During this process, the workpiece is manually pushed through the sawing belt. The vertical bandsaw is able to cut contours. With a moveable table, properly equipped machines can produce diagonal cuts. Models used for metalworking are stably constructed and often contain an integrated welding apparatus and ventilation system. Bandsaws are used for the production of plastic, aerated concrete, textiles and leather. Models made out of stainless steel are used in the food industry for the sawing of bones and frozen meat.
