The Q701 M71 Bi-Metal Bandsaw Blade is a bandsaw blade with unique features and use benefits.
Bandsaw machine operators have different options when cutting certain types of materials. Carbon blades for wood and plastics, Bi-Metal blades for steels and metals, and Carbide blades for titanium and other exotic alloys. A Bi-Metal blade is capable of cutting hard and exotic alloys, and aside from a Carbide blade, a Bi-Metal blade can also cut hard materials such as Monels and alloys.
The M-71 saw blade is a Bi-Metal blade designed to cut materials that the M-42 Bi-Metal blades can’t. The blade is effective at cutting Inconel, D2 Steels, Stainless Steels, Monels, and other exotic alloys.
The M-71 is effective at cutting these type of materials because of its unique features, which include:
- Being engineered to cut hard to cut materials of small to medium diameter
- Provides faster cutting rates with less machine pressure
- Machine and user friendly: the blade is designed for constant feed and constant pressure
- Designed to cut alloys that are prone to work hardening
The M-71 has a large gullet capacity that improves chip carrying capacity when production cutting alloy and carbon steels. When cutting exotic alloys, the accuracy and blade life of the M-71 is increased by comparison with other bi-metal blades.
Other features and benefits of the M-71 bi-metal blade include:
- Higher tooth hardness than the M-42 Bi-Metal Blade with reduced cutting resistance
- Higher wear resistance than a conventional M-42
- The kerf dispersed tooth shape makes chips fine, reducing cutting resistance
- It maintains positive cutting action and outlasts other blades in production cutting of large diameter work hardening steels and nickel-base alloys
- High heat and shock resistance
Blade specifications for the M-71 bi-metal saw blade include a 15 ° positive rake angle, a Hi-Lo tooth height, a patented M-71 high-speed edge, and a varying set width.
The M-71 saw blade has a higher tooth hardness than the M-42 bi-metal blade, which helps to reduce cut resistance.
The M-71 bi-metal saw blade usually outlasts other saw blades in the production cutting of large diameter stock, work hardening steels, and nickel-based alloys with a tensile strength of up to 164,000 psi.
