Cutting P 110 Structural Steel

P 110 steel is a pipe casing that uses P 110 material made from the highest grade of steel, which is indicated by a white band painted on the finish. When cutting structural-shaped materials, choosing a specific blade designed for that particular job is necessary. It is important to take the uneven structure of the material being cut into consideration, along with TPI requirements. At Sawblade.com, we offer the Q 501 IC bandsaw blade, which is specifically engineered to effectively cut structural materials into various shapes such as bundled tubes, beams, and small solids, like P 110 steel. The blade’s performance, whether …

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 …

The Table Saw

The table saw is one of the most traditional of all cutting tools. They are used primarily in the home and in some woodworking shops. A type of woodworking tool that consists of a circular saw blade mounted on an arbor. The electric motor is directed by gears or belt. Its blade extends above the surface of the table in order to provide support for the materials that are to be cut. The first circular saw was created around the 16th or 17th century, and in 1777, the first patent for a table saw was given to Samuel Miller. Table …

Work Hardening and The 701 Series

Work Hardening and The 701 Series of high performance bandsaw blade that ends at 4-6 TPI. Why does this blade end at 4-6 TPI? The difference between the 3-4 and the 4-6 TPI from 5-8, 6-10, and 10-14 variable tooth pitch is the rake angle on the teeth. For the 3-4 and 4-6 variable tooth pitch, both blades have ten° of positive rake teeth, which means that the tooth angles move forward — in the direction of the cutting action. The 5-8, 6-10, and the 10-14 TPI all have a zero° rake angle on the teeth, which means that the harder the blade …
