When it comes to steel cutting bandsaw blades, the two most important factors to consider are the tooth pitch and cutting speed. The cutting speed should be adjusted for cutting different types of metal. While slower speeds can be used for cutting non-ferrous metals like brass, aluminium, etc., faster blade speeds are more suited for cutting ferrous metals like mild steel, stainless steel, etc.
Right Blade For The Right Steel
Cutting steel with inconsistent speed produces a lot of heat in the teeth of the blade and makes them go blunt fast or strips the teeth completely off the blade. Bandsaw blades used for cutting steel are built with bent teeth. The bent teeth pattern creates a cut slightly wider than the thickness of the blade. This prevents the blade from getting stuck in the steel while cutting.
When it comes to cutting steel, the harder the steel, the slower the cutting speed should be. The average speed for cutting Aluminium is 150-1000m/min. However, cutting speed for cutting Mild Steel and Stainless Steel is 50-120m/min and 20-75m/min respectively.
Especially Designed For Cutting Steel
Blades manufactured at Sawblade.com.au, feature martensitic structure of the tooth tips and the high cobalt content creating an excellent heat resistance and toughness reducing wear rates at high sawing speeds.
The high wear resistance of the bandsaw blades results from very hard and evenly distributed carbides in the tooth tips, formed during the hardening and tempering process.
With a high chromium backing, the saw blade can withstand the considerable flexing stresses, tension, and blade guide pressure.
