Sawing and storage technology specialist Kasto will be presenting a wide range of innovations at EMO Hannover 2019.

On stand E54 in hall 15, the company will feature an efficient energy recovery and storage concept for automated storage systems, plus new sawing machines, ranging from the KASTOmicut workshop bandsaw and the versatile series KASTOwin/miwin to the KASTOvariospeed and KASTOtec high-performance production saws. Digital solutions will also be on show live in the booth’s Smart Solutions Corner.

On request, Kasto can offer its automated storage systems with energy recovery and integrated energy storage. Surplus kinetic energy – such as that produced when braking or lowering lifting gear – can be converted into electricity, fed back into the grid and used flexibly. Existing Kasto storage systems can be retrofitted.

Another booth highlight will be the ‘Smart Solutions Corner’ where Kasto will be presenting its digitalisation and Industry 4.0 developments. Just one of many products, the KASTOlogic warehouse management system not only enables the continuous administration and control of automated storage systems – it also manages the mobile inventories of manual warehouse areas.

The KASTOapp machine status display, the KASTOoptisaw saw plan generation system and the interactive remote maintenance solution, KASTO VisualAssistance will also be showcased at the trade fair.

On the sawing side, the KASTOmiwin is a double mitre bandsaw for cut-to-length and mitre cuts between -45 and +60°. It is available in semi-automated or fully-automated versions and is especially designed for parts cut to size in steel construction, steel trade, plant construction and special machine construction.

The universal bandsaw series KASTOwin will also be exhibited at the EMO. The KASTOwin line is designed for the serial and production sawing of solid materials, pipes and sections offering a flexible solution for a wide range of applications.

The different machine sizes are all designed using the same construction method and the components used are largely identical – and as a result, Kasto says it is able to offer the new saws at a significantly more attractive price than comparable products from other manufacturers.

For particularly heavy workpieces, the KASTOwin is also available with a movable material support table.

KASTOvariospeed circular saw is another all-rounder for steel processing. It can process different materials flexibly – even those that are difficult to machine – and it is ideal for unmanned operation, especially in combination with a KASTOcenter sawing centre.

The robust design and high-performance, frequency-controlled drive ensure short cutting times, while the ultra-thin carbide saw blades guarantee excellent precision and low material wastage.

EMO 2019 will also see another new addition – the KASTOvariospeed C18, which has a larger cutting range of 180mm. In addition, Kasto has extensively revised the KASTOtec automated bandsaw. It continues to offer high cutting performance and long band life but a new feature is the infinitely-adjustable, electro-mechanical saw feed, which provides the best prerequisites for efficient, highly-accurate and tool-friendly work.
