Accurate Cutting Services
Unrivalled subcontract sawing service
Accurate Cutting Services are a Made in the Midlands Silver Member
Accurate Cutting Services supplying cutting solutions to Britain’s manufacturers approaching five decades.
Today, after nearly 50 years of sawing Accurate Cutting Services Ltd is still a private family owned business, but has increased in size and scope through the acquisition of Birkett Cutmaster Ltd. Now operating from two main sites, Redditch in Worcestershire, and Cleckheaton in Yorkshire, we can offer faster response to customer needs in machine servicing and repairs, and a new larger portfolio of products for UK distribution.
The core of Accurate Cutting Services remains subcontract sawing, however using the same saws that we distribute gives us a practical advantage when considering customer requirements for the selection of their own sawing capacity, and also allows Accurate to select the best equipment for our own use.
Its advanced capabilities in reshaping metals have brought added value in a variety of industrial sectors, including aerospace, automotive, construction, energy and marine engineering, whether cutting from billets, bars, plate or blocks, to sawing fully or part machined components to optimise manufacturing yield or improve dimensional accuracy at lower cost.
With knowledge and skills acquired over nearly 50 years of service to industry, and by investing in locations best suited to customers, Accurate Cutting Services has won an unrivalled place as a technical partner to leading UK manufacturers.
The company can provide sawing solutions to seemingly intractable machining problems, producing cost-effective answers where other metal machining techniques have failed.
Its sectioning of part-finished or finished forgings, fabrications and castings brings benefits such as low material loss, nil distortion and improved accuracy. Manufacturing processes are simplified, with reduced production times and lowered direct costs.
Doncaster FVC’s case book of advanced applications includes sawing, in two, a centrifugally-cast turbine generator casing, 1350mm long, 1450mm in diameter and with 200mm thick walls, using what is one of the UK’s largest horizontal band saws.
It produces high volume rounds, squares, solid bars and tubes, also, to close tolerance, in ferrous and non-ferrous metals. One object for such precise cutting was a multiport extrusion, demanding minimal distortion.
The company’s responsiveness to industry’s needs has led to it establishing working cells in Lancashire, Yorkshire, West Midlands and a second Redditch location. Some are within customers’ own premises, reducing WIP and transport costs and optimising response-to-change times.
Its services bring the greatest possible value to the customers there. Lead times and costs are low in the JIT working, and communications are ideal.
