Step 1: Select Blade Type

Carbon Steel Flexback


  Accept & Continue With Options


Applications:
  • Used for cutting wood, plastics and non-ferrous materials.  
  • May cut mild steel and structural shapes at slow band speeds.  
  • Highest fatigue resistant backer of all blade types.
  • One piece construction.
  • Teeth hardened to 64-67Rc, Backing hardened to 28-35Rc
  • Most economically priced of all blade types.

Carbon Steel Hardback


  Accept & Continue With Options


Applications:
  • Used for cutting wood, plastics and non-ferrous materials.  
  • May cut mild steel and structural shapes at slow band speeds.  
  • Back is hardened, so fatigue resistant of backing is not a good as Flexback material, however harder backing provides greater beam strength.
  • One piece construction.
  • Teeth hardened to 64-67Rc, Backing hardened to 42-48Rc
  • Priced slightly higher than Flexback blades

Carbon Steel Furniture Band

Applications:
  • Used for cutting wood, chipboard, plywood & cardboard.
  • Special "ETS" Every Tooth Set pattern.
  • Aggressive 10 degree rake angle provides fast cutting
  • One piece construction.
  • Thicker blade (.032")
  • Teeth hardened to 64-67Rc, Backing hardened to 28-35Rc
  • Priced slightly higher than Flexback blades

Bimetal Matrix


  Accept & Continue With Options


Applications:
  • Used for cutting mild steel & structural shapes, non-ferrous materials, not recommended for alloys & stainless steels.
  • 8% Cobalt Matrix High Speed Steel tooth tips resist impact & vibration better than an M42 blade.
  • Provides much longer life than Carbon Steel blades in ferrous applications, provides over 3 times the heat resistance allowing them to run significantly faster than Carbon Steel blades.
  • Teeth hardened to 66-68Rc
  • Priced approximately 3-4 times higher than Carbon Steel blades

Bimetal M42


  Accept & Continue With Options


Applications:
  • Used for cutting steel, non-ferrous materials, alloys & stainless steels, solid sections
  • 8% Cobalt M42 High Speed Steel tooth tips resist heat better than a Matrix blade.
  • Provides much longer life than Carbon Steel blades in ferrous applications, provides over 3 times the heat resistance allowing them to run significantly faster than Carbon Steel blades.
  • Teeth hardened to 67-69Rc
  • Priced approximately 5-10% higher than Matrix blades.

Meat Cutting


  Accept & Continue With Options


Applications:
  • Used for fresh or frozen meat & bone cutting
  • Hardened backer to increase beam strength
  • Highly polished to decrease friction
  • Teeth hardened to 64-67Rc
