Flexible performance cutting in machine manufacturing
The medium-sized technology company ‘Sondermaschinen Oschersleben GmbH SMO’ develops, designs, manufactures and services machines and systems since the end of the nineties. With the proven competence for precision manufacturing of parts, components, system components and machines, SMO is today a sought-after supplier and partner for the printing industry. To be able to guarantee the required high and especially reproducible quality in the long run, SMO makes everything in-house. They count on the one hand on competent trained personnel and on up-to-date and high performance machines, on the other hand on a continuous quality assurance. After visiting several exhibitions, after determining the requirements and after the proposal phase, KASTO Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG in D-77855 Achern-Gamshurst got the order for a high-performance straight cutting automatic bandsaw type KASTOverto A2. Peter Neumann, the representative in Laatzen says: “ With a cutting range of 260 mm round or 320 x 260 mm flat and the pragmatically adapted automation degree, the KASTO verto A 2 is ideal for SMO’s requirements. The concept of the fully-hydraulic high performance straight cutting bandsaws with the vertically running and horizontally moving saw blade is optimally designed for serial cuts in solid materials, tubes and profiles of easy to difficult to cut materials. Thanks to the compact design and the small footprint needed (only approx. 3 m²), the saw including infeed and outfeed roller conveyor could be easily integrated in the manufacturing-close material flow of SMO und is since used in double shift operation".
