The bandsaw machine is considered to be one of the most versatile power tools as well as being essential in today’s factory production work. A properly equipped bandsaw that is expertly operated will easily cut through most material types. With metal cutting bandsaw blades, it is important to choose the right blade in order to achieve the desired end result.
The increased demand of foundry and high production cutting applications prompted bandsaw blade manufacturers to design the foundry Carbide bandsaw blade.
A Carbide blade is composed of a carbon compound for durability and requires less frequent replacement than a steel blade.
Foundry work deals with metal casting. Foundry Carbide blades are designed specifically for use in high-speed cutting of tough materials from composites to metals. Also gates, risers, and non-ferrous foundry applications, case hardened and spring steels, nickel-based alloys, and duplex and heat resistant steels.
Foundry Carbide blades will work best in the aluminum trade as they are uniquely designed with a three tooth set for straight cuts. The beveled set tooth with a straight leading tooth withstands rough cuts, offering high wear resistance and optimized cut efficiency in foundry and production cutting procedures. It will provide a smooth, clean, and cool cut on a variety of applications.
SawBlade.com is the one of the largest suppliers of Carbide-tipped bandsaw blades. They are created with a ball of Carbide being welded in a pocket that has been milled into the tooth tip. The ball is ground to blend in with the shape of the tooth, creating a tough and long-life product.
We offer finely engineered foundry Carbide bandsaw blades like the CT 1001 Haltbar Foundry Carbide, which is perfect for higher foundry production needs and delivers premium bandsaw performance. The CT 1001 Foundry is available in 3/4″, 1″, and 1-1/4″ widths, in 3 T.P.I. welded to length — please call to check on available stock.
These blades feature unique teeth made from micro-grained Carbide with specialized tooth geometry to provide smooth surface finish. It will help to prevent material build-up on the tooth edge. The saw tooth pattern provides a high-quality cut with exceptional wear and fatigue resistance, producing the desired long-life of the blade. It also reduces the cutting force and limits vibration. It is primarily used for aluminum castings, Masonite, plastics, composites, and abrasive woods.
All Carbide-tipped blades feature tooth capping to protect the blades and minimize tooth damage during transit and before installation.
