HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR BANDSAW BLADES TYPE?

Never forget their use

The band saw is an essential tool for metallurgical manufacturing. In particular, it allows various forms of cuts to be obtained and guarantees quality cuts with precision. Having this tool, though, is not enough to have good results. In order to obtain quality cuts, the right saw blade must first be chosen, taking into account the use for which it is intended;

Blades types

Applications

Bi-metal

Tooth tips are made of "fast steel" electron beam welded on a high strength steel alloyc. The result is a durable blade, resistant to wear and heat produced when cutting steels and other alloys.

* Most applications of fast metalworking
* Carbon Steel
* Alloy steels and tools
* Stainless steel
* Nickel based alloys
Carbide

Solid carbide tipped teeth are welded to the steel alloy backrest. The result is a fatigue-resistant bandsaw blade that works perfectly for cutting abrasive materials and is strong enough to cut steel as well as nickel and titanium alloys.

* Stainless steel
* Nickel based alloys
* Titanium alloys
Carbide Particles

Abrasive particles of tungsten carbide are metallurgically bonded to the steel alloy backing. This blade works well for cutting abrasive and hard-to-cut materials that can not be cut with regular saw blades.

* Fiberglass
* Composite materials
* Expanded glass
* Steel frame tires
* Chrome axis
Flexible Carbon

Constructed from a piece of carbon steel, with a tooth hardness of RC 64-66. Excellent long-lasting resistance against fatigue, even at high speed.

* Wood
* Plastic
* Abrasive materials
* Non-ferrous materials
* Saws with speeds less than 1200 m / 4000 feet per minute

Hardened Flexible Carbon

Constructed from a single piece of hardened carbon steel, with RC 64-66 tooth hardness. The hardened backing material is stiffer and allows for a more straight cut and is more resistant to stamping and blade stripping.

* Wood
* Plastic
* Abrasive materials
* Non-ferrous materials
* Saws with speeds less than 1200 m / 4000 feet per minute
