Contractors recognize Bluegrass as a leader in metal cutting methods which include dry cutting technology, specially designed diamond wire saws that can fit any spatial limitations, and remote control systems. Our R&D team performs full scale mock-ups and custom designs and fabricates fixtures in our machine shop to ensure efficient, time sensitive, and safe implementation of the cutting involved with each project.
Regardless of the cut size, shape, material or application, our metal cutting specialists have the equipment, experience and expertise to get the job done.
Our metal cutting services can be applied to segmentation or modification projects. Our range of cutting experience includes armor plating, 28” diameter crank shafts, discharge rings, process piping, base plates, reactor nozzles, heat exchangers, copper, aluminum, steel, nickel, and furnace spills.
- Two 120-ton condensers were split in half so four 60-ton sections could be removed. The diamond wire cut through 27,000 tubes of inconel, 1/4” steel ducts and steel baffle plates. One cut was made in twelve hours.
- Our diamond wire saws easily cut through a 13,000 lb copper structure during a technology demonstration.
- Average cutting time for six nozzles was 22 hours. No water or other liquid coolants were used thus eliminating the creation of waste.
