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.
