Local steel and wire distributor Capital Steel & Wire has announced they’ve purchased a sixth production saw called the Nishijimax. This addition will give Capital Steel the ability to cut from .500" to 6" on production cold saws. Delivery for the new saw will be available by the end of the month.
The Nishijimax saw incorporates metal-cutting technology enabling a decrease in manufacturing time. The Nishijimax cuts more parts per hour and per blade than a standard production saw and turns at a higher RPM with a greater chip load. Additionally, the powder metal saw blade brake allows for zero vibration when the blade enters.
