Ecology and economy when sawing and storing material will be the themes of an open house to be held by Kasto at its UK headquarters and showroom from 16th to 18th May 2017. The address is Unit 5, Garamonde Drive, Wymbush, Milton Keynes, MK8 8DF. People interested in attending should telephone Ernst Wagner on 07747 802991 or email

The firm’s latest, cost-effective sawing machines and storage systems will be launched in the UK, having been introduced last year by the German parent company. They include the new KASTOmicut, which offers higher levels of technology and performance at a lower price than the company’s previous range of pivot-bow bandsaws.

Featured also will be a production bandsaw for use with either a bimetal or TCT (tungsten carbide tipped) blade, the innovative KASTOwin pro AC 5.6. It is just as productive but less expensive than the well-established KASTOtec, or even faster with the adaptive KASTOrespond system, and has the added advantages of lower power consumption for the hydraulics as well as energy recovery features that reduce electricity use and hence running costs.

The occasion will also provide a first opportunity for visitors to hear about a new, modular, entry level sheet storage system called KASTOecostore, which is lower priced than its predecessor, the KASTOunitower C.

Finally, visitors will hear about a recently developed energy recovery and storage system for the company’s industrial warehouses, which are used globally for automated storage and retrieval of bar, tube, sheet, plate and other materials. The technology, which is optional on all of the company’s storage systems and is also retrofittable, provides savings by enabling surplus kinetic energy to be converted into electricity and stored temporarily for later use. To achieve even greater efficiency, energy storage capacitors can be integrated.
