for Ceramics, Carbides, Metals, Alloys, Control Cable, Conduit and Wire Rope
BENETEC specializes in the design and manufacture of Abrasive and Diamond Cutting Machines, using high speed abrasive cutting wheels, for a variety of applications involving the cutting of ceramics, hard metals and alloys in the form of bar, tube, cable, conduit and wire rope. The technology has significant advantages as compared with sawing techniques and is applied to the cutting of more advanced materials which cannot be cut satisfactorily by conventional methods. It is a particularly useful technique for cutting materials without distortion and for producing cut surfaces with minimum burr. Cutting times are generally much faster than with sawing.
The Company manufactures a wide range of machines, from a series of relatively simple manual machines for workshop use to fully automatic systems with magazine loaders and bar feeders for production cutting. Bennett technology is to be found in industrial cutting applications throughout industry in the UK, Continental Europe and North America.
For 25 years we have produced high quality machines with proven economic benefits to our customers.
Abrasive Cutting, for production of parts, is the method of choice if:
- A High Quality Cut Surface with minimal burr is required.
- Thin Walled Tube e.g. Stainless steel is to be cut without distortion.
- Small Diameter Bar and Tube Material cannot be cut by conventional sawing
methods, e.g. Carbides, Hard Steels, Inconel, Ceramics.
- Sheets of Composite Materials, Refractory Metals etc. need to be cut accurately
Wire, Cable or Conduit needs to be cut cleanly with a smear free face to accept a termination
