  • Multiple circular and band billeting saws for rod and tube billets (up to 800 mm ⍉)
  • High tolerance sheet surface-finishing using wide rotary-planers and 4 sided planers
  • Angular 4-side profiles using spindle moulders
  • Machined rods using bespoke rod-rounding technology (up to 65 mm ⍉)

Sawing

Cast Nylon Beam Saw Cast Nylon Billeting Saw

Most conventional woodworking / metalworking machine saws are suitable for cutting 6C materials. The product will cut under light pressure provided the blades are coarse-set and sharp. For band saws use skip or buttress tooth blades of 2-3 teeth per 25mm. For circular saws use buttress tooth blade of 2-3 teeth per 25mm.

Thickness Planing

Thickness Planing of cast nylon sheet

Woodworking thickness planers can be used for 6C plates, where non-standard thicknesses and or tight tolerances are required. Blades must be sharp and cutter speeds and feed rates high.

Four Side Planing and Moulder

Four sided nylon planer

For section requiring pre-machining tolerances or profiles, cut strips are loaded and fed through a series of at least four rotating planing or moulding tools (one for each side of the workpiece) by an integrated feed.

Rod Rounding

Rod rounder of nylon beams

Rod rounding provides a fast, effective solution for producing small diameter cast nylon rod. In turn, this capability allows for conversion of sheet off-cuts into viable standard sized round rod.
