Bandsaw Blades to Saw Rock

Processing raw materials is an integral part of multiple industries. That’s why bandsaws are versatile machines that are used to cut a range of different things like meat and plastic.

But what about tougher earthen materials such as those found in the mining industry? Whilst most machines use steel blades, the bandsaw blades needed to saw rock are often coated in special shavings.

As a result, the blades become suited to cutting harder or more abrasive materials.

2 Types of Blades to Saw Rock

By coating the teeth edge with diamond shavings artificial diamonds coated blades are able to saw through denser material.

Moreover, these blades also have gullets, leaving gaps between the teeth which allow for more aggressive cuts.

For instance, in mining operations, you’ll be able cut through piping filled with rock using diamond bandsaw blades. As such, diamond blades are suited for cutting material such as concrete and industrial ceramics.

If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative, carbide grit blades are also able to saw through rock. This is thanks to a mixture of metal and carbon being coated on the blades to produce a harder and stronger blade.

This makes it ideal for cutting through not only rock, but also materials such as carbon-fibre-reinforced plastics.

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.
