SawBlade.com Bi-Metal Blade Choices

Bi-metal bandsaw blade choices include more than just one type of high-performance steel saw blade. Bi-metal blades are the combination of two metals — usually to create a stronger, more effective product — in this case, a bandsaw blade. When it comes to bandsaw blade choices, high-performance M-42 steel combined with a more flexible alloy steel create a more efficient and cost-effective choice for metal cutting applications. Bi-metal bandsaw blades are one of the world’s most advanced metal cutting tools. Compared to the traditional circular saw, bi-metal blades characteristically offer high cutting efficiency, a good quality cut, and they save energy as well. …

Triple-Chip Carbide Bandsaw Blade

In order to achieve efficient performance in a bandsaw machine, proper bandsaw blade selection is required. Choosing the proper bandsaw blade will help increase accuracy and speed up production output. For tough or abrasive sawing applications, or if high surface finish quality is critical, then a carbide-tipped bandsaw blade is recommended. At SawBlade.com, we recommend using the Haltbar CT 1002 Triple-Chip carbide bandsaw blade. This saw blade provides quality output in the most demanding production cutting applications where standard bi-metal blades fail. The Triple-Chip carbide bandsaw blade provides high-resistance cutting capability for difficult-to-machine metals, exotic metals, and alloys. These blades are designed to cut through tough materials. The …

Flex-Back and Hard-Back Bandsaw Blades

Bandsaw blades are classified by composite makeup, namely Carbon, Bi-metal, and Carbide-tipped blades. Each blade is used differently depending on the materials involved in the cutting process. Material hardness classification includes soft, hard, or tough. The ranges of carbon steel bandsaw blades are ideal by design for use in home woodworking shops. Carbon steel blades differ in the tooth design, with heat-treated teeth designed to allow for higher speed and feed rates. Increased tensile strength permits the hard-back blade to produce a straighter cut. The hardened tooth tip counters material cut resistance and increases blade lifespan. A low-cost alternative blade …
