4 Critical Signs It's Time to Replace Your Band Saw Parts
While band saw machines are exceptionally durable, band saw parts such as blades need more care. Operating at peak productivity and efficiency every day, parts such as blades are subject to extensive wear and tear. As such, it is important for you to be able to recognize the signs of when it is time to replace your band saw parts.
Stripped Blade Teeth
If operating personnel report an increased need to apply pressure against the blade for efficient cuts, then it is possible that the blade needs replacing. This type of deterioration is natural, but it indicates that your blade's teeth have reached critical levels of stripping. If you leave it unattended, it can cause inconsistent processing results.
Machines that produce excessive noise usually indicate a need for repairs. If you notice any type of squeaking or unnatural loudness during operations, turn off the machine. You should then call on specialists to inspect the unit to determine whether there is a need to repair specific areas or replace parts. If you're using Kasco or Eberle bandsaws, you can call us at Industrial Bandsaw Services to help you.
Inconsistent Blade Speed and Movement
Sometimes, the blade may not move at the speed that’s been set. This is an indication that there is a need to lubricate the blade axis. With that said, only technicians knowledgeable about your bandsaw can determine whether you need replacement parts, so you should make sure to call for expert advice before making a decision on replacements.
Cracking and Fracturing
Dull blades generate heat faster than brand-new and well-maintained blades. Along with this heat, dull blades cut slower, which can cause cracking and fracturing in the blade itself. We advise immediately halting operations because it is hazardous to continue using dull blades.
