The M71 bandsaw blade is a bi-metal saw blade that is primarily engineered to cut materials that the M-42 bi-metal blade cannot.
Due to its unique tooth geometry and ground 8% Cobalt, the M71 bandsaw blade is suitable for cutting Monel, D2 Steels, Stainless Steels, and other exotic alloys. At high speeds, the steel tooth tips are ideal for use with alloys that are prone to work hardening.
Work hardening is a common issue with hard steels, but the M71 bandsaw blade can handle the job. It is an extremely tough blade welded specifically for heat and wear resistance.
Because of its large gullet capacity — helping to improve chip carrying capabilities — and the variable tooth height and set, the M71 bandsaw blade allows for aggressive cutting action while providing maximum performance on exotics and tough materials.
The kerf-dispersed tooth shape produces fine chips, reducing cutting resistance. It also maintains positive cutting action, enabling the M71 to outlast other bandsaw blades. A higher tooth hardness than the M-42 bi-metal blade helps the M71 to maintain positive cutting action and outlast other blades in production cutting of large diameter, work hardening steels and nickel-based alloys. Its ground teeth also provides for maximum performance.
The M71 bi-metal blade is very resistant to high heat and shock. It performs better than other saw blades in production cutting of the materials because of its tensile strength of up to 164,000 — a result of the variable tooth height and set — which again allows for aggressive cutting.
An added feature includes a durable chrome backing, making the M71 bandsaw blade very tough as well.
If cutting through large, solid sections of nickel or exotic-based alloys is required, then the M71 bandsaw blade is the right choice for the job. The M71 bandsaw blade is built to last.
