New circular sawing machine significantly speeds up deliveries

New circular sawing machine significantly speeds up deliveries
Back in November 2017 it was a change in the right direction for the UK’s largest independent steel stockholder, Barrett Steel Group as it installed a KASTOvariospeed C15 automatic circular sawing machine alongside two bandsaws at its engineering division in Maghaberry, Northern Ireland. It has increased sawing productivity, reduced delivery lead-times significantly, improved accuracy and lowered cost per cut.

Automated sawing from engineering component supplier

Automated sawing from engineering component supplier
Acquiring two automated pivoting-bow bandsaws from Kasto, a UK provider of light engineering components, Stourbridge-based Tasman Industries, saw the most recent one delivered in December 2016. They have transformed the efficiency with which the firm cuts bar material in a vast array of metal types and sizes into large batches of up to several thousands. For smaller runs, say 50-off, it relies partly on a similar, semi-automatic saw installed earlier last year by the same supplier.

New bandsaw for cutting metal tube

New bandsaw for cutting metal tube
Specifically for cutting tubular material, KASTO has introduced a new bandsaw, called KASTOwin tube A 5.0, on which the blade cuts from the bottom upwards - the reverse of the action on other bandsaws. It reduces wear on the band and avoids damage to its teeth that often occurs when a blade travels downwards into swarf that has accumulated inside the bottom of the tube.

New KASTO Bandsaw cuts aluminium blocks horizontally

New KASTO Bandsaw cuts aluminium blocks horizontally
KASTO has developed a new, horizontal bandsawing machine for cutting cast aluminium blocks into plate. Rather than sawing a billet vertically, which would leave the problem of how to handle and stack the plate after each cut, the machine deploys a horizontal blade that has been turned through 90 degrees to allow successive slices to be taken off the top of the material.
