A THIRD IMET BANDSAW FOR B+M STEEL

Addison Saws Ltd News and PR from Addison Saws Ltd - Published 30 May 2016 Leading UK steel stockholders and fabricators, Barclay & Mathieson (B+M Steel), have taken delivery of one of the very latest IMET fully automatic large capacity incremental feed bandsaws.
Installed at B+M Steel’s Glasgow depot in January 2016, the saw – an IMET H700 NC model – will be used to cut both large and small quantities of steel bar, either individually or by bundle. It will process a wide variety of products, including flat, hollow and solid sections, as well as steel beams.

Impressive cutting tolerances and impressed with IMET
“We chose the IMET fully automatic large capacity incremental feed bandsaw because of the very close cutting tolerances and production capabilities it offers,” comments Barclay & Mathieson’s General Manager, Stephen McLean. “Our decision was also influenced by the reliability and capability of the two IMET two-way-mitre bandsaws we purchased from Addison Saws last year. They have brought considerable benefits to our production strategies.”

Time-saving enhancements
To bring as much efficiency as possible to the cutting process, the IMET H700 was supplied with 12m long fully automated in-feed rollers and 5m long fully automated out-feed rollers, while to further tailor the saw to Barclay & Mathieson’s requirements, a 41mm blade was specified.

“We also worked closely with Addison Saws and IMET to incorporate a particularly innovative solution into the roller assembly, to enable smaller sections of cut steel to drop directly into a hopper unit ready for bagging and dispatch,” adds Stephen McLean. “This feature will provide a major time-saving advantage when producing smaller cut pieces of as little as 30mm in length. Because of their confidence in the IMET brand, Addison Saws was also happy to include a two-year warranty.”

Decision based on service and confidence
“We are delighted to have been invited to supply a third IMET heavy duty steel saw to Barclay & Mathieson,” comments Addison Saws’ Sales Director, Chris Wilson. “The order was all the more rewarding as B+M Steel based their decision to buy largely on their experience of the IMET bandsaws they bought from us just 12 months ago, our ability to accommodate their special requirements and the high levels of service they have received both from ourselves and IMET.”
