Sharpening SA’s supply chain

- Advertisment -

As South Africa’s industry returns to work in line with the precautionary measures and phased integration prescribed in Level 4 of the current Covid-19 national lockdown, companies are carefully considering how to safely optimise performance, recover lost revenue and preserve jobs.

First Cut has been at the cutting-edge of South African industry for the past 64 years. As a proudly local manufacturer and supplier of cutting and welding equipment consumables and distributor of steel cutting and processing equipment, the company is well-positioned to assist customers with time and cost-effective, localised solutions which tailored to suit South African businesses.

The company manufactures Messer Cutting Systems’, wide range of Messer welding electrodes at its factory in Benrose, Johannesburg, and can satisfy its customers’ requirements within short lead times. The range of electrodes include those used for welding mild steel, carbon-manganese steels, stainless steels and so-called “problem” steels where welding has to take place under difficult circumstances or dissimilar types of metal need to be joined together.

As the company’s new electrode range is manufactured under licence from Messer, the products have to comply with German, British and American quality standards such as DIN, AWS/ASME and BS. Sample product has been sent to Messer for quality certification and there is continuous monitoring of formulae and processes. As a commitment to its customers, First Cut has made a substantial investment in a high-quality electrode press; as well as industry-standard drying and baking ovens. Both the metal used for the rods and the flux coating are of superior quality.
