Rathbone operates the necessary equipment to provide the most efficient and highest quality metal cuts, so you receive the right part the first time. Whatever the requirement, Rathbone has the equipment to get the job done accurately and efficiently.
- Abrasive Saw
This saw uses an abrasive disc to cut through most any material.
- Band Saw
Generally used for cutting bundles and bars to specific lengths, not typically used for short length parts.
- Cold Saw
This saw is ideal for most ferrous and non-ferrous alloys, and produces fewer burrs and sparks.
- Adiabatic Shears
Precision shears for long-run jobs which require burr-free parts with a high-quality sheared ends.
