Ugraded sawing

Alloys Services (Weston-Super-Mare, SW England) has installed a larger, more efficient CNC bandsawing machine from KASTO. In-house cutting capability is up from 360 to 430 mm diameter and the new KASTOtec 4 machine has proved to be three times as productive as the old 260 mm capacity bandsaw that was replaced, according to Andrew Holtby, owner of the non-ferrous metal and stainless steel stockists. He commented, “We are a relatively small operation and pride ourselves on giving prompt delivery to local turning and prismatic metalcutting firms. The new saw ensures that we reliably provide 24 to 48 hour order turnaround, even for larger material that until recently we had to have cut outside.”
