Enhanced steel cutting capability at Edcon Steel

It’s important to us at Edcon Steel that we continue to evolve and innovate our capabilities so we can provide our customers with the best service and results.

In line with this, we recently upgraded our steel cutting facilities at both our Brookvale and Blacktown stores. The existing equipment was dated and increasingly inaccurate and unreliable.

Providing our customers with accurate steel cuts in a timely manner is crucial to our business, so the decision to upgrade was a ‘no brainer’.

Our new steel cutting equipment

Our new steel cutting equipment

The steel cutting saws we have introduced to our stores are high quality and purpose built for heavy steel and metal cutting. They are heavy duty and reliable, so we can keep our commitments to our customers.

In our Blacktown store we have two new saws – Everising H-460HB and Everising H-360HB. In the Brookvale store we have introduced the Everising H-360HB and Everising S4622A.

These saws are the latest and greatest in steel cutting technologies, so we can move forward with our equipment to provide the best service to our customers.

This is a powerful fully automatic bandsaw with an impressive list of features. This is a welcome addition to the cutting capacity at our Blacktown Steel Store.

With the Everising H-460HB, we can cut to the following:

Square capacity: 460 H x 500 W
Round capacity: 460mm
Bundle cutting height: 120 – 230mm
Bundle cutting width: 195 – 310mm

The saw features dual columns that support the cutting head, which allows for enhanced stability and cutting performance and auto-material detection. It’s a dream for our team to operate and it gives you a better cut.

Square capacity: 360 H x 360 W
Round capacity: 360mm
Bundle cutting height: 50 – 160mm

While our larger saws do a great job of cutting the majority of our products, they do struggle with small and thin product. The large saws can damage or deform the end of thin material… and the thin material can also cause damage to the saws by stripping the large teeth from the blades.

For this reason, all our steel stores will also be receiving a Garrick Herbert BS150W bandsaw. These saws have 14 TPI blades so we can safely and accurately cut small diameter brass and stainless steel as well as thin aluminum and brass flats, angles and channels.

The new saws can cut to the following capacity:

Rectangle capacity: 150 H x 140W
Round capacity: 150mm
