Simonds Saw's carbide tipped band saw bladesClick image to enlarge

Simonds Saw has launched Quad 7 carbide tipped band saw blades for demanding production cutting operations such as steel service centres, foundries and aerospace sawing applications.

Quad 7 Blades feature a positive rake angle four-tooth pattern that produces seven distinct chips. This provides exceptionally high material penetration for faster cutting in production sawing alloy applications.

“With today’s increased use of exotic alloys in production sawing, the need for more aggressive cutting solutions is pronounced. Our innovative Quad 7 tooth pattern was developed to address this and customers have responded very positively to initial testing,” said Dale Petts, Simonds Saw’s global product manager.

Carbide tipped blades are available in five widths: 3/4” x .050, 1-1/2”x .050, 2” x .062, 2-5/8”x .062 and 3-1/8”x .062 and are shipped in 150’ coils. Variable tooth pitch (TPI) options include 2.5 – 3.5, 2-3, 1.9-2.1, 1.4-1.8, 1.1-1.4, and .9-1.1 teeth per inch. Blades are furnished with plastic capping to protect teeth against damage in transit and handling.
