Log hot shears are used for cutting aluminium logs before extrusion (diameters starting from 4’’ up to mainly 9’’) in order to avoid scrap formation. Through the double cutting system, billets are cut with zero waste and sent to the extrusion press. Sistem Teknik offers mainly hot cutting saws for the diameters bigger than 9” together with the chip collecting systems.
While the log hot shear is installed on the aluminium billet heating furnace exit, it communicates with billet heating furnace loading table and cuts the heated billets to the desired length with 3 mm tolerance by means of jaws.
In order to transfer cut billets to the press punch directly, Sistem Teknik also manufactures loading conveyors located at the exit of the hot billet cutting machines.
