Green Technique Yields LONG LENGTH Benefits

Metal Cutting Corporation has made recent advances in abrasive cutting, enabling them to cut longer length burr-free tubes without exposing them to corrosive chemicals. Previously known for short-length cutting, we combined proprietary techniques to yield longer length cuts with no ID contamination or residue. Tube ends have the clean and smooth surfaces characteristic of their supported cut...
