The company offers cost-reducing tooling options for turning machines (single-spindle, multi-spindle and CNC), including the SAW-lutions systems, which employ circular saws, that can be used for cutting off, grooving and forming. The benefits are more pieces per bar and per hour, reduced or no secondary operations, better quality parts (little/no nib, less burr, square, flat), increased capabilities (thin-walled tubing, irregular shapes, exotic materials) and easier material handling (fewer bars of material needed, no stringy chips), the company says.
 
For shops dedicated to lean manufacturing, cutting with a saw instead of a single-point tool significantly reduces waste. Operations and costs are impacted by a reduction in material usage and transportation and a reduction in labor and machinery dedicated to specific jobs, the company says. 
 
These benefits also translate to a “greener” shop. The reduction of material transportation results in less energy usage. Chips are fewer and granule-like rather than coiled so oil recovery and chip disposal are easier and require less energy. Faster cycle times and a reduction in machinery requirements equates to less energy used per job.
 

The company’s self-contained B&S systems have a one-piece drive system for easier mounting and portability, the company says. Also available are the circular solid carbide and HSS saws and various attachments for cross-drilling, cross-milling, straddle-milling and end-milling.
