Hot Saw

The new GRANCO CLARK Hot Saw is an ideal way to help maximize the efficiency of your extrusion system. The Hot Saw allows you to cut every billet to the precise size required just before it enters the press cycle, providing some obvious benefits:

  • The Hot Saw eliminates the need to stock billets of multiple lengths
  • With the Hot Saw, there’s no chance of having a furnace full of the wrong-sized pre-cut billets after a line problem or miscalculation
  • The Hot Saw’s electronic control utilizes real-time production information to determine billet length

Delivering perfect square cuts, so two-piece billets can be used in most cases with no effect on profile quality. (Unlike billets cut with a shear, with the Hot Saw there are no gaps or deformities to trap air and cause potential problems during extrusion.)

The GRANCO CLARK Hot Saw has a unique compensation cut feature allows the Hot Saw to “plan ahead” by cutting and storing a billet segment momentarily to avoid winding up with end-of-log pieces that are too short for extrusion, and thus become scrap.

The GRANCO CLARK Hot Saw. A logical and profitable addition to any new or existing GRANCO CLARK Hot Jet furnace.
