In Booth B-7737, The L.S. Starrett Company (Athol, MA) will show their latest band saw blade solutions, including Versatix™ MP bi-metal band saw blades, along with a new web-based PowerCalc program to determine the correct Starrett Hole Saw, operating speeds, and power tool or machine for the application at hand. Versatix MP bi-metal band saw blades feature triple-tempered, high speed M-42 cobalt steel teeth with an alloy steel backing strip. The blade has a patented tooth design that dissipates stress during cutting, reducing tooth breakage and increasing blade life. Its special tooth set also minimizes pinching, making it ideal for cutting structurals and bundles. These band saw blades include an exclusive technology called bi-metal unique® that joins two strips of high speed steel wires to the backing steel using Solid-State Diffusion Bonding. Instead of a single wire welded to the outside of a steel backer, this process bonds two strips of high speed steel to each side of the top edge of the steel backer, using intense heat and pressure. The bonding area between the backer and the high speed steel is increased 170 percent over conventional electron beam or laser welding processes, creating a stronger, longer lasting blade.

The new web-based Hole Saw PowerCalc program determines which bi-metal, carbide tipped, diamond grit or arbored hole saw is best suited for an application. Input parameters include specifying the material to be cut, the hole diameter and thickness. Printable results display the hole saw item number with a link to the product, as well as a recommendation for the proper operating speeds and power tool or saw machine. A wide range of band saw blades are available, including Bi-Metal for cutting a variety of ferrous and non-ferrous materials, and Carbide Tipped that are ideal for cutting extremely hard, abrasive materials. Band saw blades coated with Carbide Grit and Diamond Grit cut abrasive materials with precision, producing an excellent finish. Other saw products include hole saws, jig and reciprocating blades, hacksaw blades and portable band saw blades. A complete line of Carbon Blades are also available for horizontal and vertical machines with manual or gravity feed. Starrett saw experts can help select the right saw blade, set up band saw machines, and help users maximize their sawing operation.
