From production cutting to general purpose use, these bandsaw blades cover the broadest cutting applications and cut the broadest material ranges to reduce the number of costly blade type changeovers by operators.
In Booth N-6672 at IMTS 2012, new A8 BroadBand® Bi-Metal Bandsaw Blades from Simonds International (Fitchburg, MA) cover the broadest cutting applications and cut the broadest material ranges to reduce the number of costly blade type changeovers by operators. From production cutting to general purpose use, A8 BroadBand Bi-Metal Bandsaw Blades provide a high-performance, longer-lasting cutting experience.
The A8 BroadBand Bandsaw Blades were developed for production cutting applications yet are perfectly suitable for everyday shop applications. Bandsaw machines are often required to cut a myriad of materials during a single day requiring blade type changeovers and are often run by multiple operators with different degrees of experience. A8 BroadBand Bandsaw Blades are robust and highly durable to reduce cutting application variables.
A8 BroadBand Bandsaw Blades employ a breakthrough formula in tooth spacing design to prolong wear while cutting through the widest possible variety of materials. The balanced and repositioned tooth design combined with a special raker tooth delivers a more consistent wear across the blade over time to last longer. This revolutionary A8 technology is featured on all Simonds bi-metal blades and is ideal for steel service centers, medium and large manufacturers, fabricators, maintenance shops, job shops and tool & die shops that are working with carbon steel, chrome steel, tool steel, die steel, stainless steel, nickel base, steel, structurals, pipe and tube, and mixed metal applications.
Features include a M42 high speed edge that improves wear resistance and an oversized blade width that increases beam strength. The tooth geometries provide optimum cutting performance across a wide array of applications and materials. Plastic capping protects the teeth against damage in transit and handling (1 in and wider).
Simonds will also have new Blockbuster Bi-Metal M42 bandsaw blades for cutting carbon steel, chrome steel, tool steel, die steel, stainless steel, and nickel base alloys in production and other general purpose cutting in steel service centers. These new bandsaw blades are designed for high-production cutting applications where cut accuracy and blade life are the most critical factors. www.simondsinternational.com
