Bandsaws come in many shapes and sizes - but most sizes aren't made equal. A lot of companies that we work with often don't know exactly what they're looking for, and overlook some of the important differentiators between sawing types. Here we'll give a brief overview of those 2 sawing types:
The most basic difference is that horizontal bandsaws typically cut straight across, meaning that the cut will be square with your material. There is little room for customization, similar to using a high-powered hacksaw on your metal. Instead, vertical bandsawing is more intricate, and allows for much more detail to be applied to the material.
With vertical sawing, the saw blade remains in a stationary position, allowing for the material being cut to be moved around the blade. The workpiece is fed though the blade, which allows for a higher customization for smaller parts. It can cut parts down to size, but this is typically recommended with a horizontal band saw.
Vertical bandsaws are best used with hobbyists and custom part manufacturers (automotive, aerospace, medical devices etc.). Depending on the production requirements, vertical saws can run anywhere from $300 for low production woodworking hobby shops to well over $50,000 if it requires high metal production for an operations floor.

With horizontal cutting, the blade is swung into the part being cut. It allows for greater precision and the ability to cut down sizes and sections of the material. For sheet metal, horizontal bandsaws are a great choice to cut down sheets to size.
Horizontal cutting machines can range widely in pricing. For small bandsaws, it can be around $400, but for horizontal, high-production setups with automation, the prices can go well over $100k.
