New saws give British Steel the cutting edge
The arrival of three new Behringer industrial saws at British Steel’s Skinningrove Service Centre will herald a major new milestone in its development.
According to British Steel, the £2.2M equipment will play a pivotal part of the operation as it will bring increased productivity, greater accuracy and intuition to the whole process of making special profiles for customers.
The first of the three saws arrived before Christmas and the remaining two will be arriving and installed in a phased operation during this year.
The £26M Skinningrove Service Centre, which is due to open this year, will include cut-to-length lines, product milling, machining and warehousing operations.
Centre Project Manager Stuart Webster said: “The new saws and product transportation systems that Behringer are providing for the Skinningrove Service Centre will be integral to the new facility.
“They will allow Skinningrove Special Profiles to move into the next phase of the anticipated market development in forklift mast sales, as well as significantly improving our capability to cut all products faster and meet tighter tolerances to satisfy the developing requirements of the customer base.”
