Today, sawing means more than just cutting a piece of material. Today, sawing is an important step, usually at the beginning of a process chain. With our automatic sawing machines, we see us as a part of the development of a product, and we willingly face this responsibility.”
Regardless of production or trade or industry. From the machine shop saw used for making occasional cuts of changing parts to a high-performance automatic saw. High-performance and precision sawing machines, whether straight or mitered cuts, whether manual or fully automatic, from the hacksaw through the bandsaw to the circular saw. The saw program of KASTO is as manifold as the applications in metal cutting.
If you are not up to compomises in quality, efficiency and design, a KASTO sawing machine will convice you that compromises are not necessary!"
The hacksaw method patented by KASTO is characterized by its bow-shaped, pushing and cutting movement. Until that time, hacksaws, in which the sawblade is clamped in a U-shaped bow, were painstakingly operated entirely by hand. However, for many companies, the machine-operated hacksaw simplified this cumbersome process while providing a considerable increase in performance. In 1952, KASTO presented a metal hacksaw for the first time at the trade fair in Hanover. Even today, smaller hacksaws are used for a broad range of tasks in workshops.
Circular saw method
Different materials such as iron, stainless steel, aluminum and increasing production requirements make other sawing methods necessary. To meet this challenge, in 1965, KASTO began producing circular sawing machines. The circular saw method is characterized, in particular, by the efficient processing of easy and difficult-to-cut materials. This method ensures that the higher industry and production demands can be fulfilled.
In 1975, KASTO expanded its sawing machine portfolio and the third method with the bandsaw machine. The continuous endless sawblade distinguishes this process. It enables an efficient and uninterruptable cut. Thanks to the thin sawblade, the material loss is significantly lower than that of the circular saw. KASTO offers a wide range of products, from workshop saws for making single cuts to powerful fully automatic machines for your demanding sawing tasks as well as high-performance bandsaw machines for the industrial machining of large blocks and plates.
Flexible and high-performance sawing in machine manufacturing
The mid-sized technology company, SMO Sondermaschinen Oschersleben GmbH, has provided services such as developing, designing, manufacturing, and servicing all types of machines and systems since the 1990s. By manufacturing nearly everything onsite, SMO can consistently meet the high and reproducible quality demands. To achieve this, they focus on modern and high-capacity machines. KASTO Maschinenbau in Achern-Gamshurst was awarded the order for a high-performance straight cut automatic bandsaw, KASTOverto A 2. With a cutting range from 260 mm round and 320 x 260 mm flat, the automatic bandsaw, KASTOverto A 2, is ideal for SMO's requirements. The fully hydraulic, high-performance straight-cut automatic bandsaw design, which features a vertically running, and horizontally moving sawblade, is the optimum solution for cutting solid material, tubes, and profiles made from easy or difficult-to-cut materials. Thanks to the compact construction and the low space requirement of only approx. 3 m², the sawing machine including the feed and outfeed roller conveyors can be integrated easily into the production material flow of SMO.
