Bandsaw Blades to Cut Copper

Copper is one of the oldest and most versatile metals in the world. Products ranging from kitchenware to electronic devices use copper. As such, it is a valuable resource that continues to see consistent use.

The manufacturing industry uses copper clad steel due to its combination of high mechanical resistance and conductivity. These products are mainly seen in wiring applications.

They’re particularly prevalent in telecommunications where it is used in telephone poles and, internet cabling. Engineers and other parts of the utilities sector also commonly use copper products. However, in order for copper to be usable, it must first be cut using bandsaw blades.

But how do manufacturers know the right bandsaw blade to cut the copper? Here at SawBlade, we’re here to help with that decision.

How to Pick the Right Blade

Manufacturers often use different bandsaw blades to cut the copper, depending on its shape. Because copper is a soft metal, the ideal blade should be bimetallic, containing 8% cobalt. You should also consider the tooth pitch(TPI) of the blade as being straight or variable.

The ideal value range is 14-18 TPI. Of course, all this depends on what form the material is in. For example, if it’s hollow, a variable pitch can avoid vibrations during cutting.

As a basic rule, manufacturers should understand the type of copper they are dealing with as well as their machines’ cutting capabilities.

If you’re unsure about any of this information, you can also contact our company’s customer service team via the online chat or using this number: 03 9005 7931.

5 Easy Steps to Build Your Own Sawblade

2. Great job, now select the Width

3. Select the Length (mm) (Round up to the Closest Increment)(Round up to the Closest Increment)

3. Now Enter the Exact Length in (mm) (Made to your Order)

Length is not correct, changed to maximum allow length.

4. Select the TPI (Teeth Per Inch)

The number of teeth per inch (TPI) defines the pitch of the blade and can vary from 1 to 32 tpi.

On some blades there are different pitches on the same blade. You must select the correct tpi for the thickness of material you are cutting. If the corrrect tpi is not chosen the blade life will be dramatically shortened.

The general rule of thumb is: For wood and soft materials aim ffor 3-6 teeth in the work piece.
