CARBIDE BAND SAW BLADES
The following information needs to be specified when a band saw blade is ordered:
PRODUCT NAME LENGTH X WIDTH X THICKNESS TEETH PER INCH
For Example:
ARMOR
®
CT BLACK 6800mm x 34mm x 1.07mm x 2.5/3.4
STEP #1: ANALYZE THE SAWING APPLICATION
Machine: Determine the band size for the machine
(Length x Width x Thickness).
Material: Determine the following for the material to be cut:
• Material Type/Grade
• Size
• Shape
Operation: Is this a production, or general purpose sawing operation?
STEP #2: DETERMINE HIGH PERFORMANCE VS. SPECIAL APPLICATION
Use the charts below.
• Locate the type of material to be cut in the top row.
• Read down the chart to find which blade is recommended.
STEP #3: DETERMINE THE PROPER NUMBER OF TEETH PER INCH (TPI)
Use the Carbide Tooth Selection chart on page 15.
If having difficulty choosing between two pitches, the coarser of the two
will generally give better performance.
When compromise is necessary, choose the correctTPI first. A general rule
for bundles: Determine the correctTPI for the largest continuous cross section.
STEP #4: CONFIRM THE DESIRED PRODUCT IS AVAILABLE
• Go to the product page for the product you have selected.
• Confirm that product is available in the correct blade width and TPI.
