First Cut - Total Cutting Solutions

First Cut has made major strides into the Capital Equipment industry in recent years, and in particular sheet metal processing. First Cut's philosophy is to align itself with leading manufacturers around the world, and in the sheet metal industry is proud to introduce some of the top international names to the local market.

Messer Cutting Systems is a global supplier of cutting-edge technology. They provide services for the metal-working industry, setting standards worldwide.
As the industry pioneer they offer complete solutions and focus strategically on their customers and on customer-driven innovation. The focus here is on digitalising. The company is active in more than 50 countries, with more than 900 employees in 5 main locations with production sites.
The product range includes oxyfuel, plasma and laser cutting systems, from hand-guided machines right up to special machines for shipbuilding, as well as plant and equipment for oxyfuel welding, cutting, brazing and heating. Spare parts, repairs and modernisation services round off the program as well as environmental equipment for the systems. Their software solutions optimise production and business processes.
Messer’s product range has been expanded by solutions from technology partners, for example in the field of automation. They focus on intensive dialogue with their customers – their modern training and application facilities reinforce this claim. Our systems, products and services for the metalworking industry stand for cutting technology, worldwide for over 120 years.

Swiss company Bystronic is a global supplier of high-quality solutions for the economical processing of sheet metal and other sheet materials. Customers profit from application-oriented systems and services for laser and waterjet cutting as well as bending.

Focus is placed on the cutting-bending process chain and the automation of the complete materials and data flow. Trendsetting key technologies such as flying optics, laser source, the unique Direct Helical Motor System (DHM), CNC control and Bysoft application software substantially improve the production process.


Bystronic offers both 3-point bending technology and air bending. With 3-point bending the points of contact are all on the same side of the material and the angle is determined by the height adjustment in the bottom tool. The Hämmerle 3P provides for the very highest repetition accuracy and precision in bending. With air bending, the points of contact are on both sides of the material. The angle is determined by the depth of entry of the tool into the die plate. Products in this range include the Xpert, for maximum repeatability accuracy at the touch of a button; the Xpert Mammut for oversized formats; and the Xact CNC-synchronised pressbrake for efficient bending processes.

Waterjet Cutting

Bystronic has developed into a leading competence centre for the manufacture of waterjet cutting systems or abrasive waterjet cutting; that is, ultra-high-pressure cutting using a water-sand mixture.

This has the advantage that the cut material is not influenced by thermal or processing forces. Further benefits of this process are the almost boundless range of materials that can be processed and the saving of incidental costs thanks to the high quality of the cut. The Byjet waterjet cutting machine perfects the accuracy of the process amongst other things due to its high-precision cutting head and the automatic cutting distance adjustment. It demonstrates unique process security thanks to the automatic control. Byjet is the first mass-produced system on the market that can be equipped as standard with a shuttle table that can be loaded and unloaded during the cutting process.

The company offers the following laser cutting options:

  • BySprint Fiber – Speedy laser cutting system with high-tech fibre laser for the economical processing of thin sheet metal
  • ByVention – The smallest laser cutting machine for standard-sized metal sheets
  • BySpeed Pro – Dynamic power package for the highest output of cut parts
  • Byspeed – Highly dynamic laser cutting system
  • Bystar – The versatile all-rounder
  • Bystar L – Large format laser cutting machines for metal sheets, tubes and profiles
  • BySprint Pro – Top speed in thin sheet metal sector; redefined for even greater productivity
  • BySprint – High-speed laser cutting system for the highest operational and economic efficiency.

In addition, Bystronic’s highly-developed handling and automation systems increase workflow and ensure smooth processes. The high-performance components offer needs-oriented interfaces for data communication, are optimally attuned to one another, and are easy to operate.

The Timesavers Group has been providing wide-belt grinding and sanding machine solutions for the metal, titanium, molybdenum, zirconium, tantalum, zinc and tungsten, and plastic processing industries, as well as for a whole range of other materials for more than sixty years.

Today, they can be considered to be one of the largest and technologically most advanced manufacturers of this type of machinery in the belt-widths 220 to 2600 millimeters in the world. Using pioneering technologies, unparalleled expertise, and unmatched services and support, they presently have more than 55,000 machines in service in a multitude of application fields that deliver some truly fine finishes.
