Düsseldorf/Spangenberg, Germany, 17 February 2020: At the exhibition ‘TUBE’ in Düsseldorf, the WIKUS-Sägenfabrik will be presenting its innovative sawing applications for the tube production in Hall 6, booth A30 from 30 March to 3 April. The TUBE is one of the world’s largest exhibitions for the steel tubing industry.
WIKUS will focus on its precision circular saw blades KREOS® and MIRUS®, developed for tubes and profiles with thin surfaces. The high-performance circular saw blade KREOS®with variable tooth pitch is suitable for cutting carbon steels with ≤ 1.5 percent carbon content. KREOS® enables a high cutting performance and an excellent quality of the cutting surface, combined with significant reduction of sawing noises.
The high-performance circular saw blade MIRUS®was developed for cutting stainless steel tubes and profiles. With geometric features, combined with the small variable tooth pitch, it is also ideal for cutting austenite and martensitic tubes and profiles.
Due to their variable tooth pitches and the increased blade life, WIKUS carbide tipped precision circular saw blades amplify the productivity up to 50 percent. Saw blade changes and machine downtimes are kept to a minimum, reducing the cost per cut.
"In Spangenberg, WIKUS develops and produces high-tech circular saw blades with the unique and innovative WIKUS manufacturing technology,” says Klaus Gross, Market Development Manager at WIKUS. “WIKUS’ high-performance circular saw blades KREOS® and MIRUS® have set new standards concerning cutting performance, the reduction of sawing noises and the excellent quality of the cutting surface.”
Also, the band saw blade manufacturer will be presenting the bimetal band saw bladesPROFLEX®, PROFLEX® PREMIUM SW M42 and MARATHON® M42 that are extremely wear-resistant in conventional applications and the carbide band saw blade PROFIDUR® for beams and profiles used in industrial steel constructions.
As the digitalisation is becoming increasingly important for the industry, the TUBE has started to focus on software solutions. Digital concepts will help to enhance the sawing efficiency in the future. WIKUS is the leader for digital solutions in the industry due to its recently launched WIstore®, the blade selector and the online cutting data program ParaMaster®. WIstore®, the digital service solution for automated re-procurement processes, reduces procurement and logistics process costs and allows daily updates of inventories as well as consumption analyses. The blade selector developed by WIKUS issues specific recommendations to allow the right band saw blade to be identified for each sawing tasks in a few simple steps, whilst the ParaMaster® software helps customers optimise their sawing processes.
Interested visitors can meet the WIKUS experts face to face and talk about the future of digitalisation concerning sawing technologies.
Update: The new date for Tube in Düsseldorf is from 7 to 11 December 2020
