Sharp move: new bandsaw from MTI Qualos


MTI Qualos Pty Ltd recently installed a large capacity Sabi Bandsaw at leading Melbourne steel distributor, GAM Steel – with outstanding results.

The new machine has a 550mm x 1000mm cutting capacity and can achieve +45°to -60°mitres plus bundle cut.

This is the second SABI installation at GAM Steel, and will share the workload with their existing 700mm x 1300mm capacity machine installed in 2003.

The new machine has a 22m infeed table and a whopping 35m outfeed table incorporating a precision 14m length measuring stop.

The installation was completed in eight days by highly trained and skilled Sabi Technicians.

Some 50 years ago, Sierras Sabi SA began by manufacturing hacksawing machines for cutting metals.

The company has evolved together with consumer demands to now provide all-embracing solutions for processing beams and steel sections.

Sierras Sabi now manufacture bandsaws for straight and angle cutting, drilling machines, painting and shotblasting cabins.
