A cut above the rest: Introducing a new bandsaw at WDS Components

18th October 2023

In a strategic move to bolster its production capabilities and continue delivering unparalleled service to its customers, WDS Components has integrated a new bandsaw machine into its workshop, marking a significant enhancement in its manufacturing processes. This addition is not merely a step but a leap towards ensuring faster, more efficient production of its components.

The new bandsaw machine brings with it a suite of capabilities that directly translate to benefits for its customers. With a robust construction and a hydraulic vice, it introduces an era where precision meets efficiency, ensuring that each cut is not only accurate but also smooth and clean, reducing the need for subsequent finishing processes.

A notable feature of the new bandsaw is its programmable numerical control (NC), which not only ensures meticulous accuracy in every cut but also allows for autonomous operation. The machine is designed to operate efficiently without continuous operator oversight, enabling WDS Components to optimise its workforce deployment and further enhance its production efficiency. This means that once set, the bandsaw can execute tasks to perfection, even in an unattended mode, ensuring that its production lines are always in motion and that it can meet customer demands in a timely manner.

Features of the new bandsaw include:

  • Variable blade speed, ranging from 25 to 90 m/min, allows it to optimise the cutting process for different materials, ensuring a clean cut while also maximising blade life
  • A 1.4 metre roller conveyor that can automatically transport materials up to 300 mm wide
  • A robust and powerful 2.2 kW motor allowing it to cater to a wider range of customer requirements with enhanced efficiency
  • A hydraulic vice with variable pressure and adjustable manual top roller so that materials are held securely and moved smoothly throughout the cutting process
  • A powered swarf conveyor to clear waste, ensuring the safety and consistency of operation and contributing to the longevity and durability of the machine
In manufacturing, time is money and the bandsaw’s features ensure that WDS Components can produce components at a pace that allows it to offer reduced lead times and more competitive pricing to its customers.

This investment in the bandsaw machine symbolises WDS Components’ commitment to its customers and to maintaining a cutting-edge production facility. This is not merely an upgrade but a testament to its dedication to providing reliable, efficient, and high-quality solutions, ensuring that its production capabilities are not only in line with but also ahead of industry standards.

Beyond enhancing production capabilities, the new bandsaw also aligns with WDS Components’ ongoing commitment to sustainability. The machine’s precision and efficiency not only reduce material waste but also lower energy consumption. This is a crucial step in the company’s broader strategy to minimise its environmental footprint, underscoring WDS Components’ dedication to responsible manufacturing practices and sustainable solutions.

In its pursuit of delivering excellence in every facet of its work, WDS Components will continue to evolve, adapt, and enhance its capabilities to meet the demands of modern manufacturing with precision, efficiency and unparalleled quality.
