Selecting the Right Bandsaw Blades – Industrial Bandsaw

May 24, 2018

Bandsaw blades can take on a very wide variety of tasks – using the right coating and type can ensure precision. Coated blades provide added benefits and qualities that have seen major improvements over the decades.

Some of the older blades, particularly titanium nitride coated blades, can cost more than they are worth, but more modern options like carbide coating, which is also used in industrial grade drills, provides better performance in feed rate. Other types of coating can improve the lifespan of the bandsaw blade, perform better with specific materials or allow more complex patters.

Now, coatings enable higher speeds and feed rates by making the tooth edge harder and tougher, protecting it from excessive abrasion and heat.

Modern coatings can perform really well in high-temperature applications, withstand chemical or physical abrasion better and generally improve the strength and durability of the blade itself. Given the high competition in the industry, modern coated bandsaw blades can be incredibly cost efficient. This is particularly true when working at large scales or under speed constraints. Blades made with particular alloys and bi-metals can be ideal for extended use. Titanium nitride and aluminium titanium nitride are good examples of blades employed for heavy production and increased safety.
