The champion aluminum panel saw

The collaboration between Fill and Briganto culminates in the alu preciser high-end panel saw for aluminum panels.

alu preciser is the benchmark for aluminum panel saws. A whole new level of precision is achieved through the latest technologies and an uncompromising focus on the material aluminum. The innovative user interface offers the ultimate in convenience and clarity. The alu preciser has been developed by Fill Machine Engineering and Briganto GmbH. The cooperation between the two companies is extremely successful. Briganto contributes many years of experience and market knowledge in the field of panel saws, while Fill has extensive expertise in specialist machine engineering.

Gurten, July 17th, 2019 – The results of this collaboration are impressive. Christian Bischofberger, CEO of Briganto, describes the merits of the alu preciser as follows: “We have developed a saw focused exclusively on the needs of the aluminum industry. This means that we can offer innovative answers and solutions to the major requirements, such as material conservation, precision, performance, and freedom from swarf. Extremely positive feedback from the Aluminium trade fair in October 2018 and the performance of the machines already delivered confirm the quality of our work. With Fill, we have found the right partner for addressing the future’s decisive issues of automation and digitalization in the cutting of aluminum panels and developing efficient solutions together with our customers.”

Efficient package of advice and service
“We have not served the market for panel saws at all in the past,” says Erwin Altendorfer, Head of the Profiling Competence Center at Fill. “However, we have succeeded in incorporating our extensive experience in building machine tools and profile saws into the new joint development. From this, we have generated an unrivaled panel saw tailored specifically to the requirements of dealers of semi-finished products.” In the medium term, Fill expects that the collaboration will yield another interesting foothold with manageable sales and distribution costs, since the experts at Briganto will be handling communication with the customers and service. “In this way, the customer will receive a very attractive package of advice and service from longstanding experts, as well as top-class machine engineering,” adds Altendorfer.
