Haltbar M42 701-601 Series

The Haltbar M42 701 series bandsaw blade will cut through applications that the 601 series blade cannot. The 701 series is designed to cut Inconel, D2, Monel, and other exotic alloys. The unique tooth geometry, plus the addition of an 8% cobalt backing strip, helps to assure prolonged blade life even under constant feed pressure. The 701 series bandsaw blade is good for production cutting of stock bars and solid rounds, and is recommended for applications that are prone to work hardening. The 701 series variable tooth height and set make this a high performance bandsaw blade that allows for an …

D2 Steel and the Bi-Metal Bandsaw Blade

D2 steel is a type of vacuum heat treated steel that is raised to a high temperature and then rapidly cooled by vacuum process. An air-hardened steel composed of a large amount of carbon and chromium, with a high chromium content that gives D2 its mild corrosion resistance properties. Typical applications include forming dies and rolls, punches, knives, shear blades, scrap choppers, and tire shredders. D2, Inconel, and other exotic materials are considered very hard steels and require the use of a saw blade designed exclusively for these materials. Bi-metal blades work best. The 601 Series Haltbar M42 bandsaw blade is widely …

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. …

Cutting Bundles

Cutting bundles can prove to be the most abusive of applications to any bandsaw blade. The potential for damage to the saw blade is doubled and as a result, the saw band’s life expectancy is reduced by 20 – 25%. Cutting bundles tends to stress a bandsaw blade, which is why saw blade manufacturers have developed a specific blade that fits ideally with this type of heavy-duty operation. When cutting bundles, SawBlade.com customers are advised to use a bi-metal blade: specifically, the Haltbar Sägen 601 bandsaw blade. The 601 Series is a saw blade proven to work effectively and efficiently through any heavy-duty bundle cutting …
