Two of the leading British saw blade manufacturers, Sheffield Industrial Saws and Atkinson Walker – the latter established in 1928 – are rightly very proud to be still manufacturing industrial-quality circular saw blades in Sheffield.
The recent move to new premises at Imperial Works, Sheffield Road, Sheffield S9 2YL not only makes the company more readily accessible (near the Meadowhall shopping centre by Junction 34 on the M1), but serves to demonstrate the company’s confidence in its future and its underlying commitment to its customers.
Sheffield Industrial Saw describes itself as being hands-on with its customer base to ensure the saws it provides meet their needs. The combination of experience and expertise, modern equipment and techniques, combined with traditional skills and a highly skilled workforce in crucial processes such as saw-smithing and grinding, all point to Sheffield Industrial Saw more than maintaining its reputation in this sector.
For a circular saw blade to perform, it is very important to achieve flatness and the correct tension to ensure all blades run true when the blade is cutting the product – this is the true measure of a quality saw blade. Sheffield Industrial Saws says its customers recognise this fact, and, as a matter of great pride, it continues to manufacture what they need for their operations.
All Sheffield Industrial Saws’ products are crafted using the highest-quality steel and tungsten tips available, ensuring they last longer than average saw blades, which helps users save money in the long term.
The main market for its saw blades are joiners and furniture manufacturers, PVC window/door manufacturers and kitchen fitters – all of which appreciate the high quality which gives Sheffield Industrial Saws’ customers a fine finish to their work. The Sheffield Industrial Saws staff have a great affection for its SAP (Special All-Purpose) blades, which allow its customers to cut metals, plastic and wood with one saw blade.
Of course, Sheffield Industrial Saws will take your old blades and regrind them, or fit replacement tips and regrind them to put the saw back into service – true recycling with our customers benefiting on cost savings against new.
The company has a drop-in counter for its customers to call at – alternatively, the knowledgeable Sheffield Industrial Saws staff are on hand to offer advice and advise customers of their best options.
