Your Guide to Carbide-Tipped Band Saw Blades
There are many different types of bandsaw blades that one can choose from. The three main types of blades are carbon blades, bi-metal blades, and carbide-tipped blades. Depending on your specific applications, different blades will suit your operations better. Choosing the wrong blade can result in inefficient operations and possibly even bandsaw damage.
In today’s blog, we will be talking about carbide-tipped bandsaw blades, their benefits, and uses.
Carbide-tipped band saw blades typically feature longer lifespans and faster cutting times. Carbide is a material that boasts high durability and heat resistance, thus lending higher performances to carbide-tipped blades. As such, they are popularly used in industrial facilities where hard metals are cut. With a strong carbide-tipped blade, cutting will encounter less vibrations, thus resulting in straighter and more consistent cuts.
With that said, it is important to make sure your carbide-tipped bandsaw blades fit well with your bandsaws. Make sure to consult with bandsaw experts who will be able to provide professional advice on the use and maintenance of carbide-tipped bandsaw blades in conjunction with the machinery that you have.
