There are several industries that utilize high-strength metals like steel throughout their daily operations. Like many other high-strength metals, organizations will utilize steel for its distinct characteristics such as high durability, tensile strength, and yield strength.
Although steel is great for many applications, it often undergoes several different processes before it reaches the final user. Many steel products come in industry standard sizes, but some customers will require certain specifications for their products that better align with their intended application. One way of satisfying the customer's specifications is to cut the steel to length by using an industrial horizontal band saw.
What is a horizontal band saw?
Horizontal band saws have a long, toothed blade that runs parallel to the floor. The band saws can be operated manually, or they can also be automated via a CNC machine for high-volume cutting purposes. The angle of the toothed blade makes the horizontal band saw ideal for cutting longer steel products like tubing, pipe, structural shapes, and bar.
Some of the key advantages an organization using a horizontal band saw may include:
- Precise cutting
- Faster cuts
- Ease of use
- Minimization of material waste
