At the Cutting Edge: a New Altendorf F45 on the way for Takumi

by | May 3, 2016 | Precision Engineering |

Takumi have placed an order for an Altendorf plate saw. We will take delivery of this equipment in mid June 2016. This saw will be capable of cutting up sheet material up to 2.5” thick which represents the majority of our workload.

By taking control of our own cutting we will be winning back in 3- 5 weeks lead-time. It will make up more agile & facilitate ease of scheduling  and give us more control over the supply chain. Material stock outs will no longer occur as it will be easy to maintain a Kanban stock of  of plates both in Takumi and the stockholder.
