Sawing is often the first work step in the metal cutting production chain. Especially for larger workpieces, bandsawing is used for this purpose. Nevertheless, studies on sawing have led a niche existence in the research landscape for a long time. However, as a result of the optimization of manufacturing processes in terms of economic efficiency, bandsawing is increasingly becoming the focus of research, since there are still saving potentials here. The aim of this paper is to investigate the extent to which the bandsawing process can be influenced by active, low-frequency vibration superimposition in the feed direction. First, analogue tests were carried out and parameter combinations were determined which have a positive influence on the process. Subsequently, these parameter combinations were investigated on a real sawing machine with an excitation unit, analysing the extent to which the results from the analogue tests could be transferred to the real process.
