Using a tablesaw is far more accurate than a bandsaw for doing segmented work. I have used a zero clearance insert for all tablesaw work for the last 15 years. The Freud Diablo blade is 1/16 thick, thus producing a very thin kerf. I use a Forrest blade stiffener along with it which makes a very "wobble-free" cut. I am able to cut 1/8" slices either crosscut or ripping. I use an extension on the miter gauge when cutting slices . A sled essentially is a piece of wood with a runner for the miter slot and a fence that is 90 degrees to the blade. When doing thin rips like 3/32 wide, I use a sacrificial push block that holds the work piece down and keeps my fingers well away from the blade.

It's easy to make your own sled. Besides you could save a bunch of money.

I use this jig I found in the library.

It was intended for making Celtic Knots but it's adjustable to make cuts of any thickness. I also made an enhancement to cut a numerous angles.

Tony,
I saw in another thread some time ago that someone was using a vacuum nozzle with a piece of pantyhose stretched over it right next to the blade to catch the little sliver of a segment slice so it doesn't go flying or get scored by the blade!
Sounded like a brilliant idea! You could clamp the hose / nozzle to the sled so it would hold itself in the right spot.
