Overview of Precision Metal Saw Cutting

Metal sawing is a manufacturing process that employs a saw blade to cut a large metal workpiece into smaller pieces. It finds application across a wide range of industries as a cutting method for a variety of materials, ranging from aluminum to titanium. Depending on the requirements and restrictions of the cutting project, industry professionals use different sawing methods.

Precision Sawing Cutting Methods

There are two primary saw cutting methods employed by manufacturers today:

  1. Circular saw cutting. In this technique, a circular blade spins as it cuts through the workpiece. Many circular saws are designed for rigidity and reduced vibration levels, which means that manufacturers can cut parts faster and with more precision.
  2. Band saw cutting. Band saw machines contain an extended straight blade that has evenly distributed metal teeth. Band saws provide uniform cutting action and high precision results and are highly suitable for cutting workpieces into irregular or customized shapes.

Advantages of Precision Saw Cutting

Compared to other metal cutting methods, precision saw cutting offers several advantages, such as:

  • Reduced material waste (due to closer tolerance cutting)
  • Quicker turnaround (without sacrificing cut quality)
  • Higher quality cut finishes (reducing the need for further finishing operations)

Industrial Applications of Precision Saw Cutting

Precision saw cutting finds use across a diverse set of industries, including:

  • Aerospace
  • Architectural
  • Biotechnology
  • Chemical
  • Food processing
  • Marine
  • Packaging
  • Pharmaceutical
