Abrasive Materials

Due to the minerals present in abrasive materials, cutting them presents a difficulty in the bandsaw industry. The material’s hardness and texture are major contributors to such issues as blade bounce or tooth stripping. Abrasives are normally used in operations like honing, polishing, grinding, sandblasting, and other similar processes. They are classified in two ways: natural and synthetic abrasives. Natural abrasive materials include things like industrial diamond, corundum, emery, garnet, flint, quartz, pumice, and talc. The synthetic varieties include synthetic diamond, boron nitride, boron carbide, silicon carbide, and alumina. Most abrasive materials applications encounter situations where the materials being cut are harder than the saw blade doing the cutting. Its …

Exotic Metals

The term exotic metals is used to describe any metal that has special qualities, a degree of rarity, or an unusual type of material use in manufacturing. Exotic metals are typically nonferrous and include things like Aluminium, Nickel, Chromium, Cobalt, Copper, Hastelloy, Inconel, Mercury, Molybdenum, Monel, Platinum, Stainless, Tantalum, Titanium, Tungsten or Wolframite, and Waspaloy. Exotic Materials can also include plastics, superalloys, semiconductors, superconductors, and ceramics. Because of their unique properties, exotic metals are used in specific engineering applications like industrial and marine applications, casting, chemical processing industries, pulp and paper, aerospace, nuclear engineering, heat treating industries, aerospace, and for electronic components, chemical equipment, missile technology, and nuclear reactors. Exotic material …
