Starrett, the manufacturer of saws, tools, and measuring instruments, invests US$ 1 million in German technology with the purchase of a new manufacturing line to produce bimetal steel with laser welding.
With the acquisition of this new equipment, the expectation is that the bimetal steel production capacity will increase by around 25%.
The increased production capacity will also boost exports of finished saw blades, meeting the demands from Europe and the rest of the world. According to Industrial Director Cláudio Luis Guarnieri “the new line will arrive at the plant in the second half of this year and will start operating in September”.
BIMETAL UNIQUE – Starrett also has another process to produce steel: the Bimetal Unique line. This patented process is used in the manufacturing of saw blades which has advanced technology for cutting metals and other materials.
In studies developed in Starrett laboratories, a saw blade produced with Bimetal Unique steel shows 22% superior durability and a 20% faster cutting time, far exceeding other similar products.
Last year Starrett invested US$ 1 million in new machinery for this patented line. In addition to generating new business, the upgrade of the machines aligns with Starrett’s vision and values of investing resources and technology in research and development.
“When investments are made, besides increasing industry sales, it also means updated innovative technology, consequently improving the quality of our tools for the consumer. Offering a product with high performance is the main goal of the industry,” points out the director.Back to All
