How Custom Cut Strut Benefits OEMs
Using highly skilled employees to cut strut doesn’t make good business sense. Shop fabrication time is a precious resource , so it’s critical to make best possible use of every hour of the day. Allowing us to cut your strut to custom length saves time and allows you to focus your employees efforts on tasks where the add maximum value. Our programmable production saw can make short work of even the largest cut job, and deliver tolerances to +/- 1/16”.
How Custom Cut Strut Benefits Contractors
While contractors don’t deal with as high-volume of work as OEMs, cutting channel is still an issue. Workers will need to spend time setting up a station to cut and debur each channel. This also means that workers may have to travel back and forth to cut strut and transport it to where it needs to go on a job site. That’s a lot of backtracking that affects your bottom line.
In this scenario, you take on the responsibility that it will be cut correctly. Even the most skilled workers can make mistakes. Incorrect measurements or rough edges create issues that can interrupt installation. It also means that your worker needs to cut another piece of strut to the right size. Cutting services eliminate this issue by taking on the responsibility of cutting each channel so that your business starts off with perfectly-cut strut from the beginning.
How Precut Struts Save on Freight
If you’re cutting channel to custom lengths, it often makes sense to do so before shipping. Larger, 20-foot sections of channel ship via your most expensive transport mode-LTL. When shipping smaller sections of channel, we can utilize FedEx or UPS and pass the freight savings on to you.
