Auto Saw Restoration
In late 2016 we had the opportunity to buy a fully automatic hydraulic bandsaw to massively enhance the capabilities of the machine shop. This machine can be programmed to continuously cut pre-determined lengths of material up to 250mm in diameter. It uses a hydraulic shuttle vice to grip the material and bring it forward to be clamped by the cutting vice before moving back, ready for the cut cycle to restart. All new seals, bearings, hoses, fittings, oil, filters, pumps and controls were used in its restoration, bringing this absolute brute of a machine back up to date and ready for its new life here at CIRC Manufacturing.
