KASTO sawing machines

KASTO offers a broad program of sawing machines.

In contrary to the trends and spirit of time: Those who decides for KASTO, decides for a lasting partnership.

From the saw for the machine shop for occasional cuts of changing parts to a high performance automatic saw, from the hacksaw via bandsaw to the circular saw. The saw program of KASTO is as manifold as the applications in metal cutting.


Today, sawing means more than just cutting a piece of material. Today, sawing is an important step, usually at the beginning of a process chain. With our automatic sawing machines, we see us as a part of the development of a product, and we willingly face this responsibility.”

Christian Milles

Sales engineer – product manager of the bandsaw series KASTOwin.

"If you are not up to compomises in quality, efficiency and design, a KASTO sawing machine will convice you that compromises are not necessary!"”

Valentin Meier

Design engineer for sawing machines

Since 1997, after we had closely worked together with Wagner, we have felt a strong bond with your company concerning mass-cutting. Due to our collaboration and your solution oriented Development Department we have considerably improved in productivity. Therefore thank you very much.”

    “Outside the Box” Thinkers

    Thinking, thinking ahead, taking it one step further: KASTO has room for thinkers. Not every idea becomes an innovation. But each individual idea is evidence of the creativity and personal freedom the employees have to test and experiment with their new ideas. Many new developments, improvements and patents are testimony that employees can rely on the company’s support. KASTO encourages creating something new. To find great ideas, new ways must sometimes be explored. Trying something new and linking different ideas. That’s how KASTO innovations develop, innovations, which bring real results for the customer.

    Responsibility and Reliability

    Complex technical systems only work when there is perfect harmony among individual components. KASTO accepts the responsibility that these components fit together in detail. Metal saws from KASTO are marathon runners. The proof is in tool life and machine lifetime. Therefore, an investment in a KASTO machine means real company value, which still can be seen if the machine is sold. Even if technical development advances with each new machine generation. One reason is heavy-duty construction, in addition to a comprehensive service program. No matter whether well maintained or expertly repaired – KASTO machines demonstrate high productivity and long All service activities and actions are coordinated in one place. This saves time for the customer and avoids production down time. And, of course, it is important for us to offer a complete service package, tailor-made to exactly what the individual customer wants. It is also important that the service package be flexible – changed or added to at any time.

A clean cut from aluminum blocks

The newly developed high performance bandsaw KASTOmaxcut A 6 x 16 ALU ensures clean cuts from cast aluminium blocks at an aluminium manufacturer. The system provides consistently high-quality combined with high cutting performance, easy operation and low idle times. The company GLEICH Aluminiumwerke GmbH & Co. KG in Kaltenkirchen, Germany, produces aluminum plates with a thickness from 5 to 600 mm, which are cut from cast aluminum blocks with sizes of 2000 x 4000 x 800 mm. The company and its 190 employees supply customers worldwide in the machinery manufacturing, air and space travel, tool manufacturing, automotive, mould manufacturing and construction industry.

The high performance bandsaw with a length of 12 m and a width of 6.8 m is convincing with high availability and easy operation. Very little time is wasted when changing the aluminum blocks: The idle times are less than three minutes. Additionally, the fully-automatic operation of the machine for several days in a row is guaranteed. “The KASTOmaxcut is one of the strongest machines on the market and is – due to its heavy-duty design – designed to withstand the rigors of very tough production conditions; it can use either bi-metal and/or carbide saw blades”, informs KASTO.


Flexible performance cutting in machine manufacturing

The medium-sized technology company ‘Sondermaschinen Oschersleben GmbH SMO’ develops, designs, manufactures and services machines and systems since the end of the nineties. With the proven competence for precision manufacturing of parts, components, system components and machines, SMO is today a sought-after supplier and partner for the printing industry. To be able to guarantee the required high and especially reproducible quality in the long run, SMO makes everything in-house. They count on the one hand on competent trained personnel and on up-to-date and high performance machines, on the other hand on a continuous quality assurance. After visiting several exhibitions, after determining the requirements and after the proposal phase, KASTO Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG in D-77855 Achern-Gamshurst got the order for a high-performance straight cutting automatic bandsaw type KASTOverto A2. Peter Neumann, the representative in Laatzen says: “ With a cutting range of 260 mm round or 320 x 260 mm flat and the pragmatically adapted automation degree, the KASTO verto A 2 is ideal for SMO’s requirements. The concept of the fully-hydraulic high performance straight cutting bandsaws with the vertically running and horizontally moving saw blade is optimally designed for serial cuts in solid materials, tubes and profiles of easy to difficult to cut materials. Thanks to the compact design and the small footprint needed (only approx. 3 m²), the saw including infeed and outfeed roller conveyor could be easily integrated in the manufacturing-close material flow of SMO und is since used in double shift operation".
