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. According to the company, benefits include 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 cutting with a saw instead of a single-point tool reduces waste, lowers operations costs and reduces energy usage. Chips are fewer and granule-like rather than coiled, so oil recovery and chip disposal are said to be 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.
