Santa's Little Helpers (Manufacturing Department) are taking a rest. You can still place orders but the orders will be dispatched after 4th Jan 2021! We wanted them continue working but... It's Holiday Time!

Molybdenum Content of Cold Saw Blades

    Molybdenum in Blades

    Using molybdenum in blade manufacturing can provide great benefits for the finished product. This is especially true for those working in the metal cutting industry. By combining the right amounts and combination of alloys, the properties of tool steel can dramatically be improved. In particular, the molybdenum content of cold saw blades is especially important to improving the strength of the cutting equipment.

    Using Molybdenum in Cold Saw Blades

    The molybdenum content of cold saw blades is particularly important to its overall resistances. Moreover, the metal is also seen as an alternative to tungsten due its price as well as lower density. In particular, high molybdenum content is common for high speed steel blades alongside tungsten and chromium. The two types of high speed steel(HSS) blade use molybdenum as one of its main alloys.

    M2 blade: This is the industrial standard for most high speed steels. It has high wear resistance along with high toughness and hardness, making it beneficial for cutting a variety of differently shaped materials. Furthermore, the added strength gained from the molybdenum alloy also improves the steel’s stability, decreasing the chance of blades breaking while cutting.

    M35 blade: This HSS-E blade has the addition of 5% cobalt added to its alloy mix. As a result, the cobalt improves the blade’s heat hardness resistance as well as its wear resistance. This leads to increased cutting speed as well as longer blade lifespan.

    In addition to specific benefits for cold saw blades, molybdenum alloy steel has several general properties that make it perfect for cutting equipment. Specifically, it also increases the corrosion resistance of steel. This serves to decrease the chance of pitting, meaning less damage to the blade over its lifespan.

    Overall, molybdenum serves as an essential part in the alloy mix of a cold saw. That’s why Our Store stocks blades with high molybdenum content, a guarantee of its high quality!

    5 Easy Steps to Build Your Own Sawblade

    2. Great job, now select the Width (mm)

    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.
