High Production Layer Saws for cutting Multiple Tubes or Bars
By cutting multiple bars or tubes in layers to increase productivity
When operating a high production circular carbide saw quite a bit of process information from the cut chips on the shop floor can be gathered. One fact which is not intuitive if one has never thought about it is the change of the chip thickness. When measuring the chip thickness with a caliper the value is usually higher than the set chip load per tooth! …
Standard Band Saws and Circular Blade Billet Saws for Automatic Sawing in Unattended Environments
Heavier Carbide Saws Versus Lighter Standard Saws for General Machining
If machine is rigid enough to avoid breakage, the price is reasonable, and the production cost (tool life) acceptable, the lighter standard saws will dominate in quantities compared to heavier vertical or horizontal saws.
Systems for Length Measurement in Metal Bar, Tube, Billet, Rail, and Plate Sawing
Posted by Chris Rindels
There is a lot to consider when selecting the right length measurement system for your application. It is a matter of discrimination on how accurate your measuring needs to be and the costs benefit of each method that is available.
Selecting the Right Material Handling System for Your Industrial Sawing Process
Investing in the right material handling system for your sawing application can improve safety and productivity of your overall sawing processes.

Why Some Material Load Tables are Overloaded with Cost
Heavy material infeed systems in production sawing systems are often over-engineered in an attempt to avoid severe damage from dropped loads. The downfall? The potential for significant cost increases.
Why Flood Cooling of Carbide Teeth Won't Work on Carbide Cold Saws
The carbide tips of a circular saw blade crack under extreme temperature changes, demonstrating why a flush coolant system won’t work on carbide cold saws.
When to Use Circular Saw Machines vs. Band Saw Machines
Circular carbide saw machines and band saw machines both have their place on a shop floor. Your needs and overall goals will determine if a circular saw machine or a band saw machine is best for your operation.
Automating Manufacturing with Rail Sawing and Drilling Processes
Posted by Chris Rindels
Combination machines with material handling streamlines rail sawing and drilling processes -- providing more throughput, increased quality and efficiency, and improved viability.
Why Minimum Quantity Lubrication is Used in Cold Sawing
Minimum Quantity Lubrication (MQL) is used in cold sawing to prevent heat build-up through friction reduction to keep both the material and the blade cool during the sawing process.
