Saws re-engineered for better productivity

Posted on by in News

FICEP said it has re-engineered its range of high speed sawing systems to improve the efficiency of what it claims are amongst the fastest saws on the market with width capacities of 600mm to 2,000mm.

The company has undertaken a design enhancement to the product’s gear boxes and hydraulic systems to improve productivity for those involved in the demanding environment of structural steel processing.

The saw feed system now also incorporates the more reliable and ridged all welded structure which is said to significantly reduce vibration, a common fault on most ballscrew feed systems.

Carbide band saw blades are often used to improve cutting capability but after trial testing, FICEP says similar results were achieved on its bandsaws by using the much lower cost traditional Bi-metal blades in the new feed system.

Mark Jones, Managing Director of FICEP (UK) said: “As one of the leading equipment suppliers to the steel processing, structural steelwork and fabrication industries, we are constantly looking to improve the performance of our machines. The re-engineering of our complete sawing range offers customers a whole new category of high speed machines which can more closely meet their individual requirements to ensure even faster processing.”
