Sawing

Meet Our Production Sawing Team:

Our array of premium saws process structural steel, and other metal accurately and efficiently.  No quantity is too large. Just tell us the lengths, quantities, and specs you need and leave the rest to us.

Our Army of Saws:

Hydmech Twins

Steel is no match for these fellas. Fraternal twins with slightly different setups, but the same core. Their reputation as the saw to rule them all has given them an ego the size of a warehouse. We keep these two on opposite sides of Houston. Who knows what would happen if we put them in a room together?

  • Proper Name: Hyd-Mech H32A
  • Cutting Capacity: 32" x 28"
  • Features: Automatic feed
  • Favorite Quote: “We WILL cut you!”
  • Residence(s): Northwest and South

 

Angelo the Miter Saw

Our Hydmech Miter saw is a wild and crazy guy and often a pest to the big Hydmech twins. He is constantly taunting them with "I can do this and you can't", about his ability to swing around and make those tough miter cuts.

  • Proper Name: Hyd-Mech M20
  • Miter Range: 60-degree range (30° - 90°)
  • Cutting Capacity: 20"
  • Features: automatic feed
  • Favorite Song: Swingin’ by John Anderson
  • Residence: Northwest

 

Grampaw Hem

He may be a bit older than the others but is a workhorse nonetheless. Grampaw Hem cuts huge bundles or single steel profiles like he’s as young as the newer fellas.

  • Proper Name: HEM H160 DC
  • Cutting Capacity: 25" x 25"
  • Favorite Movie: Saw
  • Residence: Northwest

 

 

Little Devils

These two often wish they could play with the big boys. They cut through steel with ease… but just one piece at a time. These two play it fast and loose with small sawing jobs. They grind away making 20’ pieces fit into a sedan and other quick on the spot tasks.

  • Proper Name: Metal Devil
  • Favorite Superhero: Superman, Man of Steel
  • Residence: Northwest and South

We carry the little devils' clones if you need one for your shop.

See our Saws in Action

Your custom specs are input into specialized software that tells the saws how far to auto feed the material between cuts and what angle to cut. Our fully automated saws take care of the rest ensuring precise, reproducible cuts. Our skilled operators standby to monitor the process to guarantee superior quality.

In the video above we are working on a job that involved processing aluminum square tubing for a customer to use in an air intake system.  A crane placed each 24-foot-long 8” Square tube onto the miter saw conveyor. The saw then cut each tube into seven 31” sections and partially mitered each end at a 45-degree angle. Operators used compressed air to remove metal shavings from the finished pieces and then stacked them on pallets to the end customer for final fabrication. Leaving the sawing and mitering to us saved our customer valuable time and allowed them to finish their project on time and under budget!
