Tube sawing with circular cold saw

Tube sawing with circular cold saw: versatility and good value

Sawing is one of the most versatile and used tube cutting methods. It enables the work with high production volumes, provides a clean cut (but then typically polished by deburring) and is cheaper than the laser..

This system is especially suitable for cutting small diameter tube or thin-walled tubes, which require close tolerance range (a measure refers to the cutting accuracy), producing a minimal burr. Being a cold cutting process (cutting zone is cooled with soluble emulsions in oil or synthetic oil to prevent blade teeth softening), it produces no heat affected zone, which can be a benefit for products requiring subsequent finish.

Tube cutting with circular cold saw VS Bandsaw tube cutting

Tube cutting with circular cold saw gives a much better finish than bandsaw cutting, and enables to work with higher volumes of production simultaneously . This is very useful in small tubing, allowing batch cut and making the process profitable.

Furthermore, tube cutting with circular cold saw make possible a greater variety of cuts (straight, grades, in short pieces, in large pieces, etc.)

Bandsaw, however, is suitable for large and thick-walled tubes that do not need a perfect finish, since these tubes are very complicated to deburr after its dimensions. In addition, it is cheaper.

Tube cutting with circular cold saw pros:

  • Cuts square and rectangular shapes as well as round
  • Cuts either thin and thick.walled tubes
  • Cuts soft and hard materials
  • Cuts in angle
