Whether in press shops or forging plants, at manufacturers of fittings or electrical parts, at steel stockholders or automotive industry suppliers: in countless industries, there is a demand for sawing solutions that combine high cutting performance with efficiency and precision.
With KASTOspeed C 9, the sawing specialist KASTO has just such a solution in its portfolio. The highperformance automatic circular saw has been specially designed for economic series production and can be integrated in a controlled, end-to-end material flow by means of the KASTOsort robot interface.
The KASTOspeed C 9 is suitable for sawing steel and has a cutting range of up to 90 millimetres for round material and 80 millimetres for square material. The automatic circular saw helps minimize cycle times and makes it possible to produce millions of high precision cut parts every year when operated for two or three shifts per day. Thanks to its outstanding reliability and precision in continuous operation, KASTOspeed is one of the most frequently purchased high-volume circular saws in the world.
The KASTOspeed C 9 uses carbide-tipped saw blades. The optimum positioning of the saw drive, and the four-point workpiece clamping arrangement, enable an extremely short saw stroke. The robust machine construction with helical gearbox, combined with a hydraulically damped measuring stop and a bar pusher that can be moved rapidly into position, permits accurate cutting and very high output.
What is more, the KASTOspeed C 9 offers many different ways of improving efficiency. The KASTOsort robot interface makes it possible to automate upstream and downstream production processes and integrate these in a controlled, end-to-end material flow that includes the sawing operation itself. Industrial robots are able to remove the cut parts automatically and accomplish numerous other tasks, from deburring and chamfering, through centring, tapping, marking and printing and on to sorting, stacking and picking. This robot-saw solution can be further integrated with a container management or driverless transport system.
Depending on the customer’s requirements, KASTO integrates the robot controller into the saw controller, its own KASTOlogic Warehouse Management System or in an existing ERP system. As a result, the user can control and monitor all the processes over a single interface and benefits from a perfectly harmonized process chain. A number of different magazine variants are available to allow large quantities of raw material to be stored upstream of the machine. This means that companies can run the system fully unattended even for long periods when required.
