Thompson MK6 Bandsaw offers features that Maximize Safety to the operator and other persons in close vicinity. Work Place Safety is a priority that should not be compromised.

Brake Motor allows the blade to stop within approximately 4 seconds when stop button is activated. This minimizes the possibility of accidents caused through blade run on, which is a mandatory
requirement of standards and regulations.

Brake Override Button allows the flywheels to be turned by hand for easy blade setup and machine maintenance.

Foot Controlled Stop Kick Switch enables the bandsaw to be stopped safely when the operator’s hands are full.

Limit Switches on doors, tilt-up table and bone dust bin ensure that bandsaw cannot be accidentally started during and after cleaning operations eliminating operator injury. Limit switches are internally wired to improve the safety, hygiene and appearance.

Purpose Designed Wheels are precision machined and balanced ensuring smooth, quiet and safe operation.

Removable Top Blade Guide is uniquely engineered with fine adjustment design.

Patented Bladeguard (optional) is a pneumatic blade guarding system that completely covers the bandsaw blade when it’s not in use. This mechanism is fast, effective and does not reduce any cutting efficiencies. It also prevents the motor from burning out in high stop and start operation situations.

Start / Stop Controls are located at easily visible eye level for quick and easy access.

The Powerful Direct Drive System provides positive and constant blade speed and eliminates the requirements of frequent adjustments and replacement.

Powerful 1.5kW (optional 4kW) Motor ensures continuous smooth cutting operation through fresh or frozen products.

The High Clearance from Floor allows easy and thorough cleaning providing maximum hygiene. The Larger Bone Dust Bin provides increased bone dust holding capacity.
