In the machining process, this category includes sawing systems that rough-cut excess material from sheet metal. Sawing usually must be done before any machining, forging, or welding can begin. Machining saw blades incorporate individual teeth that track through the workpiece, each gradually deepening the cut in the direction of the feed. Additionally, abrasive saws exist to remove slag from castings and forgings. Industrial saws can be categorized as abrasive saws, bandsaws, circular saws, and hacksaws. Industrial saw blades are either a hard metal (stainless steel, aluminum oxide, or chrome vanadium steel), or an abrasive material designed to slice metal.
FABTECH Heads to Chicago’s McCormick Place from September 11-14!
Exhibitors will showcase the latest in grinding technologies, sawing and cutoff machines, as well as a variety of finishing technologies.
Impediments to fully optimized band sawing can be broken into three broad categories: teeth problems, blade problems, and cutting problems. These troubleshooting tips will help operators of all experience levels work as efficiently as possible.
All materials present unique cutting issues. For the best sawing results, you must understand how material characteristics and sizes affect the cut to achieve the longest band saw blade life and production results.
Are you having problems with these tough materials? New and better blades are increasing blade productivity while maintaining or improving both blade life and cut tolerance – they are even being used to cut parts to a final size, without the necessity of additional machining.
WIKUS has just released the mobile app version of the WIstockIT® ordering and warehouse management system worldwide. It replaces the previous hardware concept.
