Special Purpose Machinery

When off-the-shelf sawing machine is not enough a bespoke or custom designed machine is the only solution.

Special Purpose Machinery

When you need a square peg to fit into a round hole, it often requires a little thought. The same can apply as to how to process your work piece. With aircraft getting bigger, oil wells going deeper and vehicles getting lighter there is sometimes a need for something a little 'special' when it comes to sawing.


'Special' is something Prosaw have a wealth of knowledge and experience in.

From machines to process rocket fuel, separate timber from UPVC for recycling through to cutting up to a 3 metre diameter heat exchanger, Prosaw have proven they know what it means to build special purpose machinery!
