Stress-free Metal Fabrication
Cutlass Mechanical Engineering
Cutlass Mechanical Engineering, metal fabrication specialists in the south of England, were sourcing a system specifically for two bridge restoration projects. These projects required hundreds of hours of heavy plate processing. Reliability and high production were key.
Process multiple metal types/alloys and thicknesses in one pass, with a single tooltip.
APEX 60 allows for increased cutting speed while preserving edge quality and straightness.
Materials: Steel, Stainless, Aluminum, Titanium, Brass, Inconel, Copper.
For the safety and longevity of the bridge restoration projects, it was key to be able to produce a high volume of very thick parts without introducing any stress into the material. With over 3,000 1/2” on one job alone, Cutlass looked to find how to get such production from a single system.
WARDJet provided Cutlass Mechanical Engineering with a dual headed Z-2543. This system allowed for Cutlass to double their production by using both heads at once. The mechanical accuracy of WARDJet systems is key to multiple head production. Cutlass was able to get maximum output out of a single system and produce all the needed parts for their restoration projects.
