Based in Faridabad, near New Delhi, Basco Tool Industries manufactures carbide-tipped circular saw blades, and has relied on sharpening technology from Vollmer for more than 15 years. To date, Vollmer has supplied seven machines to the company, including models from the CP and CHP model series.
Vikas Tiwari, CEO of Basco Tool, says: “We currently manufacture around 3000 carbide-tipped circular saw blades a month for companies across the metalworking and woodworking industries. Our vision is to not only increase the quality of our products and services, but achieve further growth. We want to be producing at least 10,000 saw blades per month within a few years.”
With around 20 people, Basco Tool produces over 25 variants of carbide-tipped circular saw blades for Indian manufacturers.
Vollmer machines on site include a CHP 840 and two CP 200 sharpening machines. With the former, carbide-tipped circular saws can be sharpened in a single set-up. The CHP 840’s four CNC-controlled axes allow the complete machining of all common tooth geometries, even when sawing with an axial angle and group toothing.
CP 200 machines are equipped with multiprocessor technology and integrated software programs. As a result, whether it is tooth faces or tooth tops, grinding speed can be freely selected and there is no need to set tooth pitch or blade thickness.
Basco Tool customers are primarily based in the north and east of India. However, the aim is to establish additional regional distribution and service centres and, ultimately, become the leading manufacturer of carbide-tipped circular saws in India.
