How has adopting an automated storage system improved access and delivery times for an Australian steel producer?

The KastoMicut series of band saws have a cutting range of 260 mm for round stock and 310 by 260 mm for flat stock. Mitre cuts are possible from -45 to +60 degrees. The mitre angle is continuously adjustable, as is the cutting speed, which can be set from 20 to 120 m per minute. A torsionally rigid, vibration-damped cast iron frame provides support for the saw blade.

Cutting aluminium requires a range of machinery depending on the end-use application that vary from aircraft to window blinds with techniques that rely on higher speeds and lower cutting forces compared to metals like steel to ensure optimum cutting geometry. By Stephanie Riegel-Stolzer, member of the Kasto management board.

Kasto’s new fully automatic band saw, the Kastowin pro AC 5.6, is optimised for bimetallic and carbide blades and can be applied in areas such as the steel trade, steel production, forging mills, machine manufacturing and the automotive industry.
