For Addison Saws, MACH 16 won’t simply provide an opportunity to present some of the very latest CNC sawing and cutting technologies to UK-based manufacturers and fabricators. Established in 1956, the Stourbridge business also plans to use the exhibition to mark its 60th anniversary.
“As the company that introduced a new breed of metal sawing machinery to the UK all those years ago,” comments Managing Director, Gary Knight, “it seemed only fitting that we should use MACH 16 to both celebrate our 60 years in business – and showcase some of the very latest cutting innovations.”
Showcasing the latest sawing, machining and tube bending solutions
Accordingly, visitors to Addison’s impressive 170m2 stand will be able to do much more than join in the company’s anniversary celebrations. At MACH 16, Addison Saws will be demonstrating a wide range of automated sawing solutions, a high-speed Mecal MC 307 Falcon 4-axis CNC machining centre – and a CSM all-electric hybrid push bender from sister company, Tubefab.
Machinery handpicked to inspire
“The technologies we will be presenting have all been handpicked to inspire manufacturers and show the immense benefits that can be brought to their production strategies,” adds Gary Knight. “For example, alongside the Mecal CNC machining centre, we will be demonstrating a new automatic saw from Tronzadoras. With Y-axis drilling capability on varying centre lines, it offers a wide range of exciting options for manufacturers of small components.”
The Mecal MC 307 Falcon – X-axis traverse speed of 150mpm
Widely believed to be the fastest aluminium machining centres of their kind, Mecal MC 307 Falcons have an X-axis traverse speed of 150mpm – almost double that of their nearest rival. Other standard features include five automatic, individually motorised vices and an A-axis profile rotation from +135° to -135° for working three sides of each component. Fibre optic plc communication ensures rapid data transfer, while absolute smart motor servo drives deliver ultra-precise performance.
Steel and aluminium cutting technologies
The saws on display at Addison’s MACH 16 stand will include: the all-new Everising H460 HB NC fully automatic enclosed bandsaw, a large-capacity Tronzadoras TL600 semi-automatic rising blade aluminium mitre saw, and the Tronzadoras GAA350 TR12 CNC aluminium vertical cut-off saw with Y-axis drilling capability. A newly released IMET twin pillar semi-automatic bandsaw will also be on show, as will IMET’s revised SIRIO 370 vertical action cold saw, and their new X Smart fully enclosed bandsaw – a heavy duty machine purpose-built for cutting cast iron, steel and high-strength steels. “We are looking to include the widest range of innovative, new technologies,” says Gary Knight. “So one or two models may be switched in the run up to the show.”
CSM tube benders – accuracy, repeatability and reliability
Finally, a CSM 50TBRE multi-stack, 4-axis all-electric hybrid tube bender from Tubefab will also be on display. Tubefab’s CSM benders are rapidly gaining recognition for their uncompromising repeatability and reliability – and linear/radial accuracy to 0.01mm/degrees – all while providing highly affordable solutions to some of the most challenging tube forming applications. Tubefab offers the entire range of CSM tube bending machines, from basic 3-axis hydraulic models to sophisticated, 11-axis, all-electric machines.
Addison Saws. Leading the way in sawing technology since 1956
This year Addison Saws celebrates 60 years at the forefront of sawing technology. Established in 1956, Addison Saws brought a new breed of metal cutting solutions to the UK and, in doing so, created a whole new market for bandsaws and circular saws. Today, 60 years on, Addison Saws continues to lead the way in metal cutting technologies and offers an extensive range of full CNC machine tools, from the world’s premier industrial machine manufacturers – all supported by uncompromising levels of customer care. The Addison Saws product range includes everything from simple, manually operated machines to highly sophisticated, fully automated sawing lines and has recently been increased with the addition of heavy duty 3, 3+1, 4 & 5-axis long-bed multi-piece machining centres. Addison Saws is part of the Addison Group, an organisation that also includes sawblade re-manufacturing specialist Dynashape, and tube-bending technology specialist, Tubefab.
