The company's line of production cutting bi-metal band saw blades may be used in a range of applications. The Gladiator blades are designed for cutting mild to stainless steels as well as nickel-based and non-ferrous alloys. They also cut varying shapes, solids and tubing.
The product line features bi-metal construction with fatigue-resistant alloy steel backing for wear and heat resistance. With a design that includes triple-tempered M42 high-speed steel teeth with eight percent cobalt (RC 67 to 69) at a rake angle as high as 12 degrees, the blades deliver chip clearance and faster, straighter cuts, the company says.
Blades are available in seven different widths and thicknesses, ranging from ¾" × 0.035" to 3 1/8" × 0.063".
Editor PickCan Additive Manufacturing Increase Milling Feed Rates?
With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flute density and other enhancements as well.
