Standard machine capacities range from the smallest section up to 2500mm diameter solid, 1500mm wide structural sections and 6,000mm plates.
Prosaw are sole U.K. sales and servicing agents for some of the worlds leading sawing machine manufacturers.
Due to this large and comprehensive range of machinery our specialist sales personnel are able to offer a solution to virtually any sawing application and recommend the right machine for the right job and/or budget limitations.
Servicing & Spare Parts
To support this range, Prosaw operate with a large team of directly employed service engineers, with many years experience of metal sawing. The team of field based engineers together with Kettering based engineers, machine tool fitters and technical support staff are, we believe, the largest in our sector of the industry, in the U.K.
In addition to responding to normal call out service requests, we also operate service contract schemes, which are designed to keep machines operating at maximum efficiency for a modest cost.
Service contract customers enjoy the further benefits of priority breakdown response and discounts on service charges and spares.
Prosaw has always placed great emphasis on supplying spare parts "off the shelf" wherever practicable, to the extent that our large, computerised stores carry over 4000 individual items in varying quantities.
Our Service Engineers additionally carry within their vehicles, boxes of emergency spares for specific machines. The content of these boxes has evolved over years of experience, to the extent that the vast majority of machine problems can be satisfactorily resolved on the first visit. To request spare parts please contact us via our enquiry form.
The saw is generally an important part of the manufacturing process, often the first machining operation, on which further machining processes depend. Prosaw have recognised that machines are often operated inefficiently, ineffectively and uneconomically through lack of operator/maintenance training. Huge savings and improvements in efficiency can be realised through correct blade selection, speeds, feeds, cutting media, etc. and basic machine maintenance.
Our training school programmes are generally regarded as the best available. They are open to any sawing machine user regardless of make of machine and is not restricted to Prosaw customers. Courses range from basic one day sessions to fully customised events at very reasonable cost.
No matter how good or efficient a sawing machine is, dramatic improvements in overall output, efficiency and safety can often be achieved through the installation of a custom built material handling system.
For most of its history, Prosaw has offered a fully in house, design, build and installation facility, specialising in finding solutions to customers' needs, to both new and existing machine installations.
We offer a free, no obligation, site/applications survey and evaluation, followed by detailed proposals.
Materials handling systems include; single roller stands, free running roller conveyors, powered roller conveyors, stillages, magazine loaders, bundle loaders, manual measuring stops, automatic NC measuring stops, incremental material feeders, cross transfer systems, labellers, engravers and ejector systems.
This facility is not restricted to sawing applications, as many of our installations to date have been supplied to suit other processes or simply as a safe and efficient means of transferring bulk materials within a works.
