Klein Steel Service (http://www.kleinsteel.com) today announced that its metals processing center has completed installation and has begun operating a new, fully automated KASTOwin A 5.6 Bandsaw designed for mass production sawing of solid material, tube and profile. The KASTOwin A 5.6 Bandsaw will provide Klein Steel with increased productivity, efficiency and reliability.

Klein Steel is planning for aggressive growth in 2016 as a result of having added new customers and greater volume with their existing customer base. “As our production volume continues to increase significantly year over year, we invest in incremental processing capacity to manage and improve our lead times,” said Todd Zyra, President.

“We evolved our business from being a distributor to a component manufacturer by really always bringing in advanced, high-end equipment,” said Zyra. “In the last ten years, the company has invested significantly in itself to create an environment which is home to both the most advanced automation equipment available and the moving equipment necessary to make it count.”

“Not only will the KASTOwin reduce our saw center lead times, it will also increase throughput on our high-speed drill line,” added Jim Sloan, Director of Operations. “For many of our larger, structural jobs, the first stage of processing begins with bundle cutting of materials. This addition will enhance that capability.”

The Klein Steel KASTOwin A 5.6 has been installed with a fully integrated infeed and outfeed conveyor system for streamlined material handling of material up to 50ꞌ in length which provides Klein Steel with increased productivity along with high cutting performance and impressive repeatability.
