Saw Blades

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.

Sawing Starts with the Material

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.
