A fully automatic Imet Sirio 370 AF-NC circular cold saw from Addison Saws is enabling Micron Stainless Steel Hygienics Ltd to accelerate production of its stainless steel pipe reducers.
 
A long-established supplier of high quality concentric and eccentric reducers for the dairy, brewery and hygienic processing industries, Swadlincote-based Micron required a solution that would speed-up the cutting of 316-grade stainless steel tube and, in doing so, free-up machine operators for other manufacturing processes.
 
Slicing cutting time
“Prior to purchasing the Imet Sirio from Addison Saws, it was taking as long as one minute to set-up then cut each component from 1.5-inch to 4-inch diameter tube using our old semi-automatic saw,” comments Micron’s Managing Director, Michael Nemec.
 
Streamlining sawing process
“Our new Imet Sirio automatic saw easily accepts the 20-foot-long stainless steel tube lengths we use and has reduced cutting time to just 20 seconds per part,” he adds. “Furthermore, its 99-program memory is proving particularly useful, streamlining the cutting process further through the input of cutting lengths and the number of cuts required.”
 
Bringing real benefits to Micron’s production strategies
“It was especially rewarding to be able to show Micron Stainless Steel Hygienics Ltd how the Imet Sirio’s capabilities would bring real benefits to their production strategies,” adds Addison Saws’ Regional Sales Manager, Marcus Williams.
 
Highest levels of customer support
“Addison Saws demonstrated a thorough understanding of our sawing needs and helped us to find exactly the right solution,” concludes Michael Nemec. “They were also exceptionally supportive as we integrated the new saw into our daily manufacturing regimes.”
