In the high quality manufacturing industries of Turkey, reliable metal cutting machinery is a driver to sustain economic growth
Why is there a high demand for semi automatic metal cutting bandsaws from Turkish metal manufacturing industries? The answer can be found in how Turkey continues to maintain steady growth as a manufacturing center in 2023. Turkey manufacturing output has bounced back convincingly after Covid despite recent national economic setbacks and natural disasters.
Every country relies on manufacturing for a significant proportion of economic growth. This is especially true of countries like China and Turkey, where manufacturing generates a significant proportion of income. There are, however, differences between Turkish manufacturing and Chinese manufacturing because of their target markets and manufacturing technology.
Turkey manufactures products of a higher quality than are commonly manufactured by mass-market suppliers of similar products from China. This makes Turkey a desirable partner for global companies looking for OEM manufacturing of products that meet high quality standards.
Turkey also has a strong domestic base for manufacturing goods for export. We know that fabricators rely on high quality metal cutting bandsaws to maximize profitability and ensure long term success. It should not be surprising that there is a high demand in Turkey for high quality metal cutting machinery.
What type of metal cutting bandsaw works best for Turkish manufacturers?
There are three main types of metal cutting bandsaw: vertical, horizontal and dual column. There are different models of each type and each has a range of accessories. We find that horizontal metal cutting bandsaws, and particularly semi automatic horizontal metal cutting bandsaws, are the most popular choice for busy metal fabrication businesses.
For many small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in the Turkish metal manufacturing sector, the optimum solution for metal cutting is the semi auto metal cutting bandsaw. These enable rapid, reliable, repeat cutting of stock to lengths ready for the next process while being comparatively easy and effortless to use by a trained operator.
Horizontal metal cutting bandsaws are the type most commonly used by Turkish fabricators because they offer flexible options for cutting, are cost effective, and easy for an operator to use. These three features make them the preferred choice for almost all manufacturers.
Three main benefits of horizontal metal cutting bandsaws
- Flexible cutting options
- Cost effective
- Easy to operate
Most horizontal metal cutting bandsaws rely on gravity or operator pressure to perform the cutting action, but some are hydraulically assisted. There are multiple accessories and options for horizontal metal cutting bandsaws, including rotating vices and bases which enable miter cuts.
Semi automatic horizontal metal cutting bandsaws are automated with hydraulics to lift the cutting bow and minimize operator fatigue. This makes semi auto horizontal metal cutting bandsaws the best option for Turkish manufacturing companies as they offer the most reliable, flexible, accurate and operator-friendly method for precise production-line cutting of metal stock.
Three additional benefits of semi automatic metal cutting bandsaws
- Reliable and dependable
- Accurate cutting action
- Operator-friendly, reducing fatigue
What about vertical and dual column metal cutting bandsaws?
Vertical metal cutting bandsaws and dual column metal cutting bandsaws are the other options open to manufacturers who need to cut stock into precise lengths and at accurate angles. These are less popular with metal product manufacturers in Turkey for four reasons.
- Vertical bandsaws require greater operator supervision
- Accurate cutting requires more preparation with vertical bandsaws
- Dual column bandsaws are very accurate but more expensive
- Cutting speed with dual column bandsaws is often slower than horizontal bandsaws
For very high precision, however, dual column metal cutting bandsaws like our RF300 model provide additional peace of mind and security of operation for Turkish manufacturers seeking even more stability through the cut.
For a metal cutting bandsaw manufacturer, meeting the needs of Turkish manufacturers is part of our standard service to the global metal fabrication market. By manufacturing a wide range of manual and semi-automatic metal cutting bandsaws we are able to supply Turkish fabricators of all sizes, from the smallest workshops to large scale machining services.
Four reasons Rong Fu metal cutting bandsaws are used in Turkish manufacturing
- The Rong Fu metal cutting bandsaw range meets the needs of any type of workshop
- Semi automatic metal cutting bandsaws protect operators from fatigue
- Capable of versatile angle and miter cutting
- Flexible gravity or pull down cutting operation
In the fast paced environment of busy Turkish manufacturing companies, our range of semi-automatic metal cutting bandsaws are especially important. Because the semi-automatic metal cutting bandsaw has power assistance to lift the saw bow up for the operator to prepare for the next cut, the operator does not become fatigued by repeated lifting of a heavy saw bow.
Swivel head options enable easy miter cuts, and for the cutting cycle, there is a choice of gravity feed or pull-down operation. Pull-down cutting is quick, but also requires some operator effort. Gravity feed is slower but usually gives more predictable results.
