  • GF Cold Saw Blade

GF cold saw blades have the ability to perform a precise cut on tubes and pipes within a matter of seconds. The basic requirements for a high-quality blade are to perform a precise, right-angled, and burr-free cut. GF blades cut and bevel high-alloy steel (stainless steel), low- and unalloyed steel, plastics, casting materials, and non-ferrous metals easily and in just seconds. 

GF Cold Saw Blades: Features and Applications

Designed to increase the service life of both the machine and the blade, GF blades have numerous applications and features that make it a perfect choice:

  • Enhanced safety due to stationary pipe – rotating tool.
  • Self-centring vice.
  • Low-maintenance.
  • Speed-controlled pipe cutting application.
  • Burr-free cutting surface and deformation-free pipe cross-section.
  • Cold machining processes.
  • Cutting of elbows.
  • Reduces the amount of physical effort for the operator.

 

Follow The Steps Below For Longer Blade Life

Following are few industry proven “Rules-of-thumb” to help you get the most out of your blade for a prolonged time period.

Break-In Procedure

For the first 15 minutes of a new blade being fitted to the machine, maintain normal blade speed & reduce the down feed. The blade should effectively rub the material to be cut & only produce swarf as ‘filings’.

This is best achieved by cutting a solid piece of mild steel with half the normal down feed pressure. The process creates a honing effect to the tips of the teeth where they are microscopically dulled.

Blade Speed

Blade speed should differ depending on the material being cut, however, below are speeds for the most general application of GF cold saw blades.

  • Mild steel: 70 – 80 metres/minute
  • Stainless steel: 45 – 55 metres/minute

Feed Rate

You can tell this by looking at the Swarf, what you want is ‘fingernail’ type swarf curls that only do 1 to 1.5 curls (max), and aren’t blue/darkened with heat.

Blade Tension

This is critical for accuracy in cutting and for maximum Blade life. To manually check for sufficient tension, ensure the Machine is turned off and place the palm of the hand on the back of the Blade, in between the Blade Guides. By pressing down towards the bed of the Machine, there should be nothing more than 1-2 mm of movement.

5 Easy Steps to Build Your Own Sawblade

1. Select Material

2. Select the Width

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

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

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.
