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!

Using Tungsten in Blades

The metal that a blade is manufactured with can heavily affect its attributes and cutting capabilities. As a result, making blades usually involves alloys that combine to provide multiple benefits for the finished product. In particular, tungsten is commonly used in cold saw blades due to its strong resistance to high temperatures and natural hardness.

Tungsten is, in fact, a vital component of both types of cold saws. However, the application and amounts of the metal in the manufacturing process is different depending on the type of blade. This is thanks to the physical properties of tungsten which make it a versatile alloy to combine with other metals.

High-speed steel blades(HSS): HSS blades have used tungsten as an alloy since the very inception of the tool steel. By combining carbon steel with this metal and other alloys such as chromium, the forged product becomes incredibly heat resistant. As such, this heat resistance also helps to improve cutting efficiency as the blade can operate for longer periods of time before needing to cool down. This becomes especially apparent when compared to the commonly used high-carbon steel.

Tungsten-carbide Tips(TCT): As the name suggests, TCT blades use a metal-carbon compound as coating on their teeth. When applied, tungsten-carbide provides the blade teeth with extremely high abrasion resistance as well as heat resistance. This helps to sustain the blade’s sharpness for longer than HSS blades meaning more consistent clean cuts on the materials.

In essence, the importance of tungsten in blade manufacturing can not be overstated. Their natural hardness and heat resistance make them perfect for use in cold saw blades.

That’s why SawBlade makes sure to stock blades that contain high tungsten content in Our Store which you can visit right now!

 

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.
