Sawing

Cutting process

Band Sawing

Vertical band saws (contour saws) and horizontal band saws use conventional, fluid cooled blades to friction cut even the hardest steels. Using Piyush Steel saws, customer benefits include:

  • Low cost cutting for virtually any product.
  • Laser guided blades (selected locations) to assure straight, close tolerance cuts.
  • Minimum kerf loss means lower overall material cost.

Width and length tolerances are generally +/- 1/16 inch, though tighter tolerances are possible, depending upon the application.

Capacities
Bar, diameter 26 inch outer diameter
Plate, thickness 6 inches (12 inches, selected locations)

Cold Sawing

Cold saws use circular, tungsten-carbide tipped blades or high strength steel (HSS) blades to cut product with minimal burr, no sparks, no discoloration and no dust. As a result, with Piyush Steel cold saws customer benefits include:

  • Smooth, machined surface.
  • Edge has no heat affected zone and post-processing thermal treatment is generally not required.
  • Close tolerance parts, reducing finishing time.

Width and length tolerances are generally +/- 1/16 inch, though tighter tolerances are possible, depending upon the application.

Capacities
Bar, diameter 6 inch outer diameter
Plate, thickness 8 inches
