Leading aluminum extrusions company seeks innovative new equipment to increase efficiency and keep costs down for customers
RUSSELLVILLE, Ark.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–“American-made” Taber Extrusions, a leader in the U.S. manufacturing industry, has announced its precision saw-cutting capabilities for rod & bar/standard extruded shapes and customized aluminum extrusion profiles. Taber has added two new equipment enhancements to its Arkansas-based facility to maintain its leadership in the marketplace, saw cut with greater precision, and keep costs down for customers.
“Both new saws are custom-made for efficient aluminum cutting, ensuring high production rates while minimizing scrap.”
Anticipating the needs of their customer base that includes many various markets, both commercial and defense related, Taber’s manufacturing facilities added a band saw and a circular saw to fully cover the extensive range of produced extrusion profiles. With this new equipment, Taber’s cut tolerances now include length and squareness of cut (up to +/- .010″) across a maximum 32″ width (minimum cut length of .75″). Both new saws are custom-made for efficient aluminum cutting, ensuring high production rates while minimizing scrap.
“The upgrade to our sawing capabilities provides our customers with a product precise enough to be loaded directly into their machining centers,” remarked Steve Althardt, Sales Manager for Taber Extrusions. “The precision cut blanks saves our customers time and money compared to having to cut mill lengths in house.”
For over thirty-five years, Taber Extrusions has broken boundaries as an extrusion leader in the production of a range of quality, customized aluminum extrusions by using cutting-edge technology and offering competitive prices.
