Meeting the needs of local steel fabricators

- Advertisment -

First Cut, together with Taiwan-based capital equipment supplier Everising, supplies South African steel fabricators with premium equipment, consumables, and technical support. The two companies have a long-term collaboration which has enabled local customers to successfully streamline their production equipment and processes.

For 64 years, First Cut has been at the forefront of industry in South Africa. As a company which has stood the test of time, through cyclical global economic challenges and decades of growth, they have consistently delivered the expert advice, excellent consumables, capital equipment and service which discerning customers have come to expect.
Recent upgrades to the popular P-series circular saw and E-series bandsaw ranges are prime examples of Everising and First Cut’s shared commitment to customer-centric solutions. These incremental innovations to both ranges have facilitated improved data transfer in terms of speed and volume, enabling customers to reduce production costs by speeding up cutting times.

Everising always has the requirements of its customers in mind when embarking on research and development initiatives. The P-100C product refinement process, for example, was based on careful consideration of customer feedback. As a result, its new inner brake transmission system delivers enhanced cutting performance; while simultaneously preserving and extending the longevity of the blade.

Everising’s P-series and E-series band saws are CNC-controlled and also feature advanced touchscreen control. E-series band saws are equipped with high-efficiency gearboxes lubricated by a controlled oil-feed system, to ensure extended machine life. An inverter regulates the variable speed of the blade, which is tensioned hydraulically. An idler wheel motion detector serves to detect blade stalls, thereby preventing blade damage.

The robust electronics on the E-series ensures that downtime is minimised; while an anti-vibration roller serves to protect the blade, which is cleaned by two automatically adjusting wire brushes. An advanced quick approach device and an automatic tracking blade guide protect the machine against accidental damage.
