Saws produced and sold by Jack saws

Metal cutting saws

Jack Machinery Australia specialises in the production of every type of saw used in the metalworking and fabrication industries, with manual, semi-automatic, and fully automatic alternatives available. Jack Machinery Australia is the best in the business, with tough industrial-grade construction and exceptional cutting quality.

We stock a wide variety of metal cutting saws, including:

  • Coldsaws – Circular saw machines that cut quickly, accurately, and with great quality. When using a coldsaw, both the blade and the material being cut remain cool. They are suitable for cutting most ferrous and non-ferrous alloys, and the blades may be sharpened several times if they get blunt.
  • Bandsaws – Purchase the most dependable quality bandsaws in Australia. These bandsaws are well suited to high-capacity metal cutting projects since they can cut through enormous amounts of work swiftly and easily. M42 bandsaw blades have a long life and are inexpensive, resulting in a low cost per cut. When a blade becomes blunt, it is simple to replace it.
  • Friction Saws – High-speed circular saws that cut metal using frictional heat. The generated heat melts through the metal, resulting in an extremely quick cut. Friction saws are frequently used for cutting the most tough materials, although their blades have a shorter life period than other saws.
  • T.C.T Saws – A rapid and precise circular saw designed for nonferrous metals such as aluminium, copper, and brass. These saws feature a tungsten carbide-tipped blade, which provides improved strength and allows the saw to be run at much higher temperatures to generate a faster cut.

Saw blades

We offer Jack bandsaw and coldsaw saw blades for general purpose cutting, as well as specialised saw blades for the most difficult metal cutting operations.

Our selection includes speed face coldsaw blades, which reduce friction when cutting and increase wear resistance. Cobalt coldsaw blades are an additional exceptional option, with a 5 percent cobalt content that increases the hardness of the blades, making them an excellent choice for cutting hard materials that reach greater temperatures during the cutting process.

T.C.T saw blades, which are tungsten carbide-tipped for enhanced cutting quality when working with non-ferrous metals, are also available.

Saw accessories

In our Saw Accessories department, you'll find everything you need. No cutting saw is complete withoutsynthetic metal working fluid, which we supply in 5 litre and 20 litre sizes.

We also supply coldsaw platforms, which provide you with a perfect working platform at a comfortable height to perform your metal sawing work.

Safe design approach used by WCC

Identify hazards

Identify the hazards relating to all stages of the product – such as hazardous manual handling or violence and aggression.

Assess the risk

Assess the likelihood of the hazard causing harm to people.

Eliminate or control the risk

Implement effective control measures to eliminate the risk, or if this is not possible, reduce the risk of harm to an acceptable level. For example, overhead tracking, noise reduction, machine guarding.

Review

Review the effectiveness of the controls to ensure they are working to reduce the risk to an acceptable level.

Principles of safe design

The five principles that impact on achieving a safe design are described below.

Principle 1: Persons with control

The people who make decisions should be competent and understand that their decisions will affect the design of products, facilities or processes, which means they can promote health and safety at the source.

Principle 2: Product life cycle

Safe design applies to every stage in the life cycle from conception through to disposal. It involves eliminating hazards or minimising risks as early in the life cycle as possible.

Principle 3: Systematic risk management

The consistent application of hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control processes is required to achieve safe design.

Principle 4: Safe design knowledge and capability

Should be either demonstrated or acquired by persons with control over design.

Principle 5: Information transfer

Effective communication and documentation of design and risk control information between all persons involved in the phases of the life cycle is essential for the safe design approach.

The safe design principles will be applicable to the following stages of the product’s life cycle:

  • Design
  • Installation
  • Operation
  • Disposal

‘Safe design’ refers to a process defined as the integration of hazard identification and risk assessment methods to eliminate or minimise the risk of injury throughout the life cycle of plant, tool or equipment being designed.

New equipment to be introduced into the workplace

Jack Machinery Australia wants to design a cold saw with protective guarding that will enable safe operation, whilst also ensuring that the machine can be installed, maintained and disposed of safely.

Advise on consultation with known and/or potential users of the product

Based on the organisational policies and procedures, the following stakeholders need to be consulted during the design phase:

  • Supplier
  • Operator

A report will be generated by the above stakeholders to advise on WHS risk in a product’s life cycle.

Organisational processes and procedures to facilitate involvement of technical experts

Technical advice must be obtained on the following matters:

  • Consultation arrangements required throughout the project life cycle.
  • Communicating residual WHS risks in product
