WHY BUY?

 

 

Q1. Why is Kaltenbach the only manufacture in the world to include a drilling spindle option for their full automatic circular saw?
A1: Galvanising venting specification for welded SHS/RHS/CWS require a hole to allow venting and galvanising draining for safety or the parts will not be galvanised. Kaltenbach designed this functionality for example customers produced big quantities of tubes (stables, scaffolding or the greenhouse fabricators in the Netherlands and now this capability has allowed Kaltenbach customers a competitive advantage to win more and does more with less headcount and improved margins. Refer to Safety in venting holes galvanising welded RHS/SHS/CWS profiles structures fittings supplied from the Galvanizing Association of Australia.

Q2. Why are steel service centres investing in a KKS fully automatic saw with drilling when they already have a 1990 designed beamline working hard labour 20 hours a day?
A2: The steel service centre can remove small profiles from the beamline to increase capacity and remove schedule pressure from that beamline. The steel centre can load bundles of profiles into the automatic load and walk away from the machine and have the KKS with drilling working in lights out mode. The drilling unit allows the profile to meet the galvanising specification for draining holes that allows the profiles to be removed from the beamline. Beside that, KKS Fully Automatic saw can process small material, starting from 5 mm height and cut up to 3 angles at the front and backside of profiles (used for example as welding preparation).

Q3. Why is a fabricator or steel service centre investing in a fully automated circular saw with bundle loading, drilling and lights out automation when they could invest in a tube laser instead?
A3: The circular saw technology is cost-effective to run and almost as fast as a laser at only 25% of the cost. Most profiles can be processed on the KKS circular saw so the additional capability and investment cost from the tube laser is not required so the ROI is not available for price-sensitive parts. Specially for mitre cutting application, the saw delivers much better results. Also, a laser a limited to certain material shape and thickness. The saw is universal for nearly all profiles shapes as well as for cutting solid material.
