FMB was founded in 1982. At this time, the market for precision sawing was dominated by circular saws. FMB was one of the very first manufacturers to introduce the European-style band saw machine as a replacement for circular saws. FMB’s Manual Pull Down Bandsaw is the original and today, it is the standard for this style machine. Its precision saw blade guide system, true direct drive saw motor, heavy cast sawhead, and rigid construction ensure that your FMB saw will provide accurate cuts year after year.

Since 1982, FMB has greatly expanded its product offering. They now offer over 30 models with cutting capacities ranging from 8-5/8” to over 20 inches. Within their product offering, there are Manual, Gravity Feed, Semi-Automatic, and Fully Automatic Horizontal Bandsaws, Vertical Tilt-Frame Bandsaws, and CNC Drilling Centers.

FMB Saws

FMB has invested in their engineering and technical department so they can continue to build the most precise bandsaws on the market. All FMB machines are subject to a series of tests during and after production to ensure that each machine is produced to their high quality standard.
