HW615 15” Industrial Bandsaw

Like many traditional machines, band saws have not changed much over the decades. Harvey decided to redesign band saws with new ideas to raise the standards for band saws. The ALPHA Series HW615 Bandsaw is a direct result of these ideas. The basic concept behind the HW615 is to make a truly heavy-duty, powerful and precise bandsaw which will enable you to do the job with ease and pleasure. 

The HW615 is built with a 3 HP, 220v motor to ensure enough power to undertake any job that a 15” bandsaw can handle; solid, reinforced structural steel frame; premium, heavy-duty cast iron flywheels; unique tool-less upper and lower blade guides; Newly developed COMPASS RG-2 Roller Guide for your safe and enjoyable cutting; substantial 20”x 20” work table with TiN Coating for rust prevention; extra-large precision high low aluminum fence with solid T-square gliding/locking structure; worm gear system for smooth worktable tilt; dual trunnions for stability; and a fully enclosed blade guard. All of these add to the precision, smoothness and solid performance and make HW615 a ultimate bandsaw for professional woodworkers.

  • Golden TiN coated worktable

    Worktable: the substantial 20" x 20" (508x508mm) cast iron work table is Titanium Nitride (TiN) coated providing a durable, rust resistant finish which has an excellent appearance.
    Heavy Duty Cast Iron Flywheels and Reinforced Structural Steel Frame

    Dynamically balanced cast iron flywheels provide smooth operation, extra torque and minimum noise when running.

    The reinforced solid steel frame insures the stability needed for extraordinary performance.
    Extra large Precision Hi-Low Fence with solid T-square Structure

    Fence: the fence has been upgraded to a extra-large precision Hi-Low fence of 6”, which is made of high strength extruded aluminum. The position of the fence can be changed to accommodate the size of the work piece. In the vertical position, the fence provides stability for re-sawing applications. 

    Rail: the rail has been upgraded to a structural steel tube providing additional strength and rigidity and allowing for more precise settings. The solid T-square structure is easily adjustable and allows the fence to slide smoothly. 

    Full Enclosure Protection for Blade

    Guide post: upgraded to all-steel construction, the guide post provides full coverage preventing accidental contact with the blade. 

    Ball Bearing Blade Guides feature Tool-less Adjustment

    Ball Bearing Blade Guide: this patented new system incorporates a ball bearing on each side and the back of the blade, which improves the wear resistance and work life of the machine. The tool-less adjustment and lock knobs are thoughtfully designed to provide easy access and use. Both top and bottom guide sets utilize this system.

    Cast Iron Worm Gear Tilting System

    Tilting Table: a worm-gear dual trunnion system offering precise adjustment from 45 degrees to -15 degrees using a heavy duty hand wheel. It is easy to operate and the gas piston assists the user in making micro adjustments to the large table.

    Comes with the COMPASS RG-2 Roller Guide

    In order to enhance the operation safety and user experience of the HW615, our newly developed COMPASS RG-2 Roller Guide is included as standard accessory.The main body of RG-2 is made of anodized aircraft-grade aluminum with high precision machining and beautiful anodizing.

    The Compass RG-2 Roller Guide utilizes an 'Independent Suspension Mechanism' where each roller has its own pre-loaded spring. This design enables the two guide rollers to adapt to dynamic stocksurfaces with consistentholding pressure by moving independently.

    The Self-locking Cam Structure allows for precise holding force adjustment by rotating the knob to optimize pressure for specific cutting situations. It offers an adjustable range of approximately 15 – 22 lbs (70 – 100 N), suitable for various cutting scenarios.
    Both Doors have Safety Switches

    Safety Shut Offs for Both Doors: the upper and lower cabinet doors are equipped with safety switches which automatically shut off the machine when a door is opened.

    Foot Brake: immediately stops the saw blade when needed.

    Switch: The magnetic switch is lockable and can also prevent overheating of the motor. 

    Motor: the 3 HP TEFC, industrial grade motor supplies robust power needed for the large capacities of this band saw.

    Uncompromised Details

    Dust Brush: the dust brushes in the lower cabinet remove the dust and chips to ensure consistent blade speeds and reduce slippage.

    Tool Rack: the tool rack conveniently placed on the frame makes the most commonly used tools readily available. 

    Dust Port: the HW615 upgraded version is equipped with two 4" (100 mm) dust ports. A solid cover is included so that one port can be closed for higher efficiency at the second port.

    Tension Label: a laser-engraved label has been added to the frame. 

    Handwheel Handle: upgraded with Chromium for its hardness, resistance to corrosion and its aesthetics. The handwheel includes a handle for ease of operation. 

    Door Locking Knob: upgraded to a knurled knob for its beauty and to ensure an anti-slip grip.
