Additive manufacturing is becoming increasingly important in metal processing. Part of this process is separating 3D-printed parts from the base plate. Well before 3D sawing became a trend, MEBA developed a concept which guarantees fast process time and good cutting results, with low operating costs at the same time. The outcome of this concept is our: MEBA3D 335/510.
The MEBA concept is based on the successful straight-cut saws of the MEBAeco product family. These machines showcase modern machine technology, high efficiency and outstanding cutting results. The metal band sawing machine is equipped with a special clamping device and can therefore precisely separate 3D printed pieces from the customer’s mounting plate.
|Motor||3,0 kW AC|
|Saw blade||4400x34x1,1 mm|
|Sawblade speed||15–150 m/min|

|Dimensions (LxWxH)||1200x2150x1900 mm|
|Working height||750 mm|
The metal band sawing machine is equipped with a special clamping device and can therefore precisely separate 3D printed pieces from the customer’s mounting plate.
The plate is being attached on the MEBA device which can be accurately aligned due to linear guides.
The fixture plate can be dismantled after the termination of the sawing process, and after a little rework the fixture plate can easily be reused.
Suitable for retrofitting:
The entire device is built on a base plate and can be therefore mounted easily and cost-effectively on already existing sawing machines, completing as a result your machine fleet.
Especially suitable for base plates up to a maximum of:
Important security indication:
Dust explosion-protected vacuum cleaners are not suitable for the suction of explosive or equivalent substances within the meaning of §1 SprengG. Liquids and mixtures of flammable dusts and liquids are also not suited. The operator needs therefore to guarantee the safe avoidance of ignition sources.
In comparison to traditional production processes such as wire EDP, the 3D MEBA sawing concept is less complicated since it only requires two operating steps: clamping and sawing. Acquisition and maintenance costs are significantly lower.
The long service life of the band saw blade also keeps the costs low. Capacity and amortization of the saw are additionally favored by the fact that MEBA3D saws can also be used for standard sawing work with a low conversion effort.
With the integrated MEBA3D solution your process could be as described: In the first step the 3D parts are printed on a plate. Afterwards, the plate must be fixed on the MEBA device, which can be moved as desired via linear guides and can therefore be precisely aligned. As soon as the plate is positioned, the sawing process begins. In the final step the MEBA3D bandsaw removes the 3D printed workpieces quickly and precisely from the plate.
The sawn workpieces fall then into a container where they can be removed and if necessary further refined. After the sawing process the fixture plate can be dismantled and with little rework reused for further prints. With the help of this solution, you can gently detach the 3D parts from the plate with little effort and quick saw cuts.

You have a MEBA saw in your inventory and now want to enjoy the advantages of 3D sawing without buying a new machine right away? Talk to us: We will be happy to check whether the MEBA 3D system is also compatible with your saw. The entire device is built on a base plate and can be mounted on some MEBA models. 3D sawing therefore does not automatically require the purchase of a completely new saw, but can in many cases be easily and cost-effectively added to your existing machinery.
