Sawcraft reports a further increase in Cosen sales

Sawcraft UK has reported a record number of sales involving Cosen sawing machines. For instance, Wrekin Steels Ltd has taken delivery of its second Cosen G320 automatic bandsaw (pictured), which is cited by Sawcraft as the company’s top-selling model due to its output in relation to size and cost. Specifically designed for mass production cutting on material up to 320 mm diameter, bundle-cutting options are also available.

Elsewhere, Midlands-based Clarke Steels has ordered a second Cosen C-460NC to keep up with current production demands. The C-460NC is a fully automatic scissor-action bandsaw with a cutting capacity on round material of up to 460 mm diameter. A tilted saw bow is incorporated to reduce twist and maximise blade life. Smart NC 100 controls allow the machine to store up to 100 different cutting jobs, while automatic kerf loss compensation is a further feature.
Dyfed Steels Midlands Ltd is another company to invest in the Cosen C-520NC automatic bandsaw. The C-520NC also incorporates the latest Smart NC-100 technology. Operators can program up to 100 different jobs, including quantity and length of cut parameters.
At ContraCut, near Halifax, the UK’s first Cosen SVC-670DM vertical, semi-automatic, dual mitre-cutting Bandsaw has been installed. This saw was the obvious choice for ContraCut due to its large cutting capacity yet minimal floor space requirements.
