Choosing Bandsaw Blades According to Tooth Style

 

10-03-2021

 

Getting the right bandsaw blades for your applications is crucial to smooth operations. There are plenty of brand names that have been recognized to be the most trusted when it comes to such products, such as Eberle, Kasco, Simmons, and more. However, you will need to do more beyond just selecting for the manufacturer. Different manufacturers specialize in different types of bandsaw blades.

 

For instance, Eberle’s bandsaw blades work best for the metal and steel cutting industry. Kasco, on the other hand, works best with sawmills, and Simmons produces knife bands that can be used for food processing, foam, and more.

 

In today’s blog, we will be going over one of the main criteria for selecting a bandsaw blade: tooth style.

 

Usually, there are three common types of tooth styles, namely: hook, skip, and regular. While these blades look similar, there is a difference. Every tooth style is intended for a certain cut and you can’t use one blade type in replacement for the other one if you want to achieve precise cuts. Hence, you have to know the primary features of each blade type to save you time, effort, and money. 

 

Regular Type Blade: This is the most common type. It is suited for general purpose cutting and contour cutting and also works perfectly in cutting fine materials. The regular tooth bandsaw blade is all about proportion and enjoys the most frequent use worldwide.

 

Hook Type Blade: Bandsaw blades with hook type teeth are very unique with their deeper gullet and larger teeth. They are particularly useful for materials that need extreme aggression while allowing you to cut at a much faster speed. Hook type bandsaw blades are usually used in cutting metal, thicker hardwood, and plastics that require long cuts. 

 

Skip Type Blade: The major distinction with skip bandsaw blades from other types is that they have more space between each tooth. This tooth style eliminates clogging, which is an essential feature when cutting some materials like non-ferrous metals, softwood, and plastics.

 

On top of that, you will be able to get detailed specifications for each model of blade if you get in touch with the distributor.
