Plate Cutting

metalweb continue to invest in purchasing and operating cutting-edge plate cutting machines. Material as long as 6 metres and as small as a few millimetres can be cut to your exact size. metalweb have the capability in-house to cut plate from as thin as 6mm up to over 600mm.

Extrusion Sawing

metalweb operate a range of bar saws which are capable of cutting any size of extrusions including tube. Normally extruded bars are cut to a tolerance of ±0.5mm. Close tolerance cutting of bars up to 250mm is by use of CNC controlled, automatic, high speed circular saws which can cut ±0.1 mm and produce a much superior surface finish. Bars can be cut up to 500mm diameter from stock. We currently serve a number of markets that require a specialist service of aluminium extrusions. These include building applications; specialist transport applications; interior fitting-out products; and catering/medical hygiene products, amongst others.
