Understanding the Benefits of Precision Saw Cutting

In precision saw cutting, a mechanized blade cuts through metal, wood, or plastic workpieces to create smaller components or pieces. Precision cutting is typically used to make components — such as pipes, tubes, and bars to the right dimensions. Unlike other cutting processes like laser cutting or waterjet cutting, saw cutting techniques use a sharp, hard blade to physically cut the material. These blades come in a variety of different styles, such as circular saws, cold saws, or band saws, to accommodate different material thicknesses and specifications. Precision sawing offers a wide range of benefits that make it essential in various fabrication projects.

Benefits of Precision Saw Cutting

Precision cutting offers several benefits for both high-volume and low-volume orders. Some of the most common benefits include:

  • Cost-Effectiveness. Precision sawing is a quick, simple process that doesn’t require specialized tooling and results in little to no material waste. Cutting yield loss is also typically covered in the price so there are no surprises.
  • Speed. Both manual and CNC sawing equipment can quickly cut through single workpieces for complex custom goods or large batches of pipes and bars. This ensures that products are ready for subsequent operations when you need them. 
  • Outsourced services allow for lean manufacturing operations. By outsourcing your precision saw cutting services, you can save valuable plant floor space for your specialties rather than setting up bulky sawing equipment.
  • Precision. High-quality sawing processes can cut goods so they meet required specifications within tight tolerances and with minimal waste.
  • Improved cash flow. Outsourced precision sawing services can fit within your timeline so you don’t pay for unused time, which improves operational cash flow.

Nifty Bar — Your Precision Saw Cutting Specialists

Our saw cutting services use precision plate saws with excellent straightness and squareness capabilities. Because there is no heat-affected zone, saw cutting produces parts without work-hardened edges. Precision saw cut parts can help save set-up and processing time in subsequent operations and are suitable for many types of applications.

Other than saw cutting, we also offer CNC torch cutting, waterjet cutting, and more to create high-quality workpieces and simplify your production project.
