Sistem Teknik provides hot saws and hot shears for cutting aluminum logs prior to extrusion. Hot saws with a chip collecting system are recommended for diameters greater than 9”, whereas shears are best for diameters between 4′′ and 9′′. Billets are cut with zero waste using a double cutting system in hot shears. Hot shears communicate with the furnace loading table to cut heated billets to the desired length with a 3 mm tolerance. Sistem Teknik also manufactures loading conveyors that are installed at the exit of hot shears and saws to directly transfer cut billets to the press punch.
