KASTO Unveils Innovative Sawing Technology at Metalex 2016

Innovative Sawing Technology from Leading German Manufacturer

KASTO Maschinenbau
, the world’s leading manufacturer in the field of sawing and storage technology for metal bar stock, will be showcasing its products and services at Metalex in Bangkok from 23 to 26 November 2016. Visitors to the trade exhibition for machine tools and metalworking, the largest in south-east Asia, will be able to get a first-hand impression of the expertise of this German company, which has had a branch office in Singapore since last year.


For decades the family-owned company KASTO has been well known for high-quality, innovative products and effective services. Founded in 1844 in Achern, south-west Germany, it can draw on more than 170 years of experience in sawing and storage technology. KASTO is thus one of the oldest family-owned companies in all of Europe. Its product range includes metal sawing machines, semi-automatic and fully automatic bar stock and sheet metal storage systems as well as automatic handling systems for metal rods, sheets and parts cut to size.

Two years ago, for example, KASTO successfully launched its KASTOwin line of economical multipurpose band saws. These machines feature a comprehensive range of standard equipment and excellent value for money. They are ideal for use in areas such as mechanical engineering, tool-making and the steel and automotive industries. KASTO is continually expanding this series. The KASTOwin is now available with a movable material support table for heavy workpieces and in a special version for machining tubular material. The latest model is the KASTOwin pro AC 5.6, a high-performance band saw that is optimised for use with bimetallic and carbide blades, ensuring short cutting times and a long tool life.

KASTO has been active in south-east Asia since 1991, where it has had loyal customers for many years. To improve the service it delivers to users in the region, the company decided last year to open a subsidiary in Singapore. From here it is able to focus more closely on the needs of the south-east Asian markets and provide faster and first-hand services. The company provides support to users in every phase of a project, from planning and development of a facility through construction and commissioning all the way up to maintenance and after-sales service.
