TT goes LIVE with Plasma Cutting
For many years the method of cutting the prestressing wire, after the beams have been lifted from the bed, has been with Stihl saw cutting machines. This meant production operatives were bent over with noisy, heavy, vibrating 2 stroke cutters for several hours each day cutting the wires prior to the beams being forklifted to the stock yard.
Following significant investment this daily routine is now considerably improved with the full support of the production team. Aside from cost savings the main benefit and purpose is to improve the working environment and reduce potential health and safety issues.
