The very first step in a work plan aimed at the manufacturing of pulleys and gears is usually the task of sawing.

WIAG manufacturing processes are carried out on five automatic band saws, which are fitted with crane equipment connected up by roller conveyors. Bar materials weighing up to 3 tons are placed on this system. Sawing is performed with a circulating saw band up to 6 m long and a cutting width of 2mm. Diameters or bores of up to 430 mm can be sawn at WIAG, with larger diameters being obtained directly from manufacturers.

Sawn cut pieces are then selected, labelled according to the appropriate orders and allocated to the next work process.

The following materials from our stock are currently being processed with our sawing technology:

  Type Material number
Steel C45 1.1191
  16MnCr5 1.7131
  42CrMo4 1.7225
  9 SMn 28 1.0715
Stainless steel X 5 CrNi 18 10 1.4301
  X 10 CrNi 18.9 1.4305
Cast GG25 0.6025
  GGG40 0.7040
  GGG50 0.7050
Aluminium AlMgSi1 3.1325
  AlCuMgPb 3.1645
  AlZnMgCu1,5 3.4365
Plastic PA6  
  PA 12 G  

In principle, it is also quite possible for all other materials to be cut in this way.
