With material inventory costs high, and turnover low especially for special alloys, we are often approached to reduce larger sizes of available stock to smaller dimensions and can offer capacity in our sawing service.
Cutting bars into forging billets, to carefully controlled weight and length tolerances, close to where its customer needs them, Accurate Cutting Services enables Stokes Forgings Group to run its stocks very lean. The customer receives the cut pieces only on the day they are wanted.
Accurate Cutting Services specialises in heavy-duty vertical band sawing to produce substantial savings by profiling blanks to remove excess material in bulk - Sectioning by bandsawing. The removal of excess material prior to machining can significantly reduce machining time and reduce tooling costs. The offcuts are available for use or for sale as prime stock, rather than scrap.
