Raw Materials: Cutting
When high precision is needed to cut stainless steel, alloy steel, and nickel alloys, cold saws and metal band saws are the perfect metal cutting options.
Band saw cutting is one of the most important methods of metal cutting. The process requires using a saw with a long blade consisting of a constant band of sharp metal stretched between two or more wheels. This makes a consistent cutting because of an evenly distributed tooth load.
Cold saw cutting is a sawing method that uses a circular saw to cut metals. This process keeps the material and the cutting blade cold. Cold saws are able to machine the most ferrous and non-ferrous alloys. Other benefits include minimal burr production, fewer sparks, and no dust.
Power Plant Services provides metal cutting services using band saws and cold saws to deliver cost-effective and reliable results. Contact us at RMsales@ppsvcs.com or call 708-345-8600 to inquire our metal cutting services.
Shearing is an industrial metal cutting process used to cut straight lines on sheet stock.
During the shearing process, cutting blades are forced past each other to fracture the material into separate, smaller pieces. This process produces quality clean cuts and can be repeated rapidly.
Shearing features include the following benefits:
- Ability to cut straight-line on flat sheet
- Cost effective and incredibly fast for high volume manufacturing applications
- Does not create chips
- Can be done on sheet metals in different diameter sizes
Many forms of metals support shearing, including steel, stainless steel, copper, iron aluminum, and bronze. Power Plant Services provides shearing services that deliver cost-effective and reliable results—and the process is done by professionals with extensive knowledge of the material and its properties.
