Bandsaw Blade Speed Recommendations

It is important to consider bandsaw blade speed recommendations if accuracy, a smooth finish, and increased output are part of the plan. A bandsaw’s teeth are designed to cut a variety of materials and produce a uniform cut. The minimum radius of a curve cut on a particular bandsaw is determined by the width of the band and its kerf. Bandsaw speeds can range anywhere from 40′ (12 m) per minute to 5,000′ (1,500 m) per minute, and specialized saws built for friction cutting of hard metals run at speeds of up to 15,000′ per minute. New tooth geometries and pitch …

Cutting Structural Materials

When cutting structural materials, it is important to understand what the material is made of, and in order to achieve long-lasting cutting performance, there are different types of steel that require the use of a specific type of bandsaw blade. It is also simpler to be able to determine the correct tooth pattern for solids than it is for structural shapes. Here are a few things to consider before cutting structural materials using any bandsaw blade. Square tubing and angled structural materials need to be cut at the correct angle in order to keep the saw blade’s teeth in constant contact with the thinner …
