In Booth A-3350, The L.S. Starrett Company (Athol, MA) will feature their Versatix™ MP bi-metal band saw blades and demonstrate their new web-based Band Saw Blade Selection Tool to help determine the appropriate Starrett Band Saw Blade. 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. In addition, its special tooth set minimizes pinching, making it ideal for cutting structurals and bundles. These blades include exclusive bi-metal unique® technology 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 and creates a stronger, longer lasting blade.

Also on display will be a new web-based Band Saw Blade Selection Tool that is an efficient way to configure and select a Starrett Band Saw Blade. Input parameters include specifying the blade type, such as bi-metal, carbide grit, carbide tipped, carbon, diamond grit or stainless. Users can also designate blade width, thickness and tooth pitch. Results display the blade with a link to product details, including blade features and specifications. Users also have the option to start the selection process by sorting on the blade product name.
