Thermserve has commissioned an automatic billet saw at an independent extruder based in the middle east. The saw consists of an infeed conveyor, saw, out feed conveyor and chip collection system. The new system is capable of handling up to 254mm diameter billets and will process approximately 15,000 tonnes per year. The saw employs Amcol blade lubricating technology to ensure cut quality and blade life. Swarf and chips are collected via a vortex system and transferred outside of the building for easier collection and transfer to an onsite melting furnace.  The system was fully tested in our works in Telford before shipping.
