Beamline and Bandsaw Cutting
One of our most popular services at Di Candilo Steel is bandsaw cutting, it’s the perfect solution for processing all types and grades of structural steel, with a choice of up to 10 bandsaws we will make quick work of your preferred material ensuring it is cut to the length and angle (up to 45°) that is desired.
What is bandsaw cutting and how does it work?
Simply put, a bandsaw is a continuous looping blade driven by motorized wheels, a system of guide rollers and supporting tables firmly secure the material in position, the blade then slowly moves through the steel until the cut is complete. The bandsaw controller allows adjustments to speed/feed, blade tension, tilt angle and coolant flow which are imperative for optimal cutting and blade life.
What types of steel and metal can we cut on our bandsaw?
Almost all structural steel shapes can be cut including tube, pipe, channel, beam, flat bar and angle, different metal varieties like carbon steel, aluminium, galvanised and stainless steel are also suitable for bandsaw cutting. Due to their differing properties we will select the best suited blade and tooth arrangement to prevent damage to the machine and material.
If your project needs a higher level of detail then perhaps our beamline services would be of interest to you.
What is a beamline and is it suitable for my project ?
A beamline is a CNC machine that can process all forms of structural steel just like a bandsaw but also has additional features like drilling, milling, plasma/laser cutting and marking, this is particularly helpful when a beam or column requires accurately placed holes, slots and cut-outs. Examples of where beamline processing is essential would-be construction, mining and infrastructure projects that need ready to go material for fabrication.
