Sawing Systems

To separate components into two or more pieces or to cut off an unwanted section of a part, a continuous cutting (band or rotary) or a reciprocating type saw cuts a narrow slit into the workpiece using a saw blade with narrowly spaced teeth. While each tooth takes a cut as the blade moves past the work, the number of teeth cutting at one time varies from two to ten or more depending on the thickness or diameter of the work. In most sawing operations, the work is held stationary and the saw blade is moved for cutting. Typical machines include band saws, circular saws, cold saws and abrasive cut-off machines, each designed for cutting effectiveness in specific applications.
