The new saw center that has been built during this summer and fall at the Uddeholm steel mill in Hagfors is now ready for operation starting by the year end. The saw center will replace six old saws, with low capacity regarding todays standard, with a brand new automated saw center including a stock system with 665 different partitions and two new saws with automated sorting systems for dimensions up to 430mm.
“To meet the clients’ expectations and demands in service and efficiency we have to become faster and more effective. That is why Uddeholm has invested 32 million SEK in building the new saw center”, says MD Johnny Sjöström.
By starting up their investment Uddeholm raises their service level towards the client through shorter lead time, secured deliveries and limited tolerance of the cut material. The increased service level is exactly what the clients want and follows Uddeholms’ strategy of being #1 within all areas.
