Precision Sawing

TCI precision sawing is capable of cutting all alloys of Aluminum, Stainless, Brass, Copper, Plastic and other ferrous and non-ferrous metals. For even tighter tolerances, our Duplex Milling Services allow us to offer +/-.0005″ all around.

Schelling FM8 Precision Plate Saw

At TCI we use an array of sophisticated tools to precision cut aluminum and other non-ferrous metal materials.  This includes our Schelling FM8, computer controlled plate saw, which performs consistently and reliably. The saw combines sophisticated material handling, power and weight to handle material up to a  6” (150mm) book height. The saw, which weighs in access of 28,865 lbs, is driven by a 46hp motor, a feed rate of up to 100 ft/min, and consistent tolerances of +/- .005” and within .005” squareness.

Open Tolerance Saws

TCI’s wide-array of open tolerance saws allow us to quickly cut to size, plate, sheet, billet, bar, forgings or castings. This is done either as a pre-milling operation, or complete to print.

Precision Cut-Off Saws

TCI’s precision cut-off saws allow us to quickly cut to size bar, channel, extrusions or other long material, either as a pre-machining operation, or complete to print.


TCI’s sales and production departments plan each job to properly nest the finished dimensions on the starting plate or sheet. This produces the highest yield possible, without sacrificing wasted material, and reduces costs to the customer.

What Our Customers Have to Say

More Customer Testimonials —>

I received my blanks today. These look beautiful. Quality product, excellent customer service, on-time delivery, and exceptional packaging… unheard of these days!! I’m anxious to start using them. Thank you for all your help on this. I’ll definitely order again.

Just want to say thanks. I recently ran a job with some blanks ordered from TCI. The blanks saved me two setups and more importantly put extra profit into my pocket. I don’t usually have the luxury of waiting to get material for a job but this time everything worked out fine. You guys rock!
