Saw Blades Feature Customized Tooth Design

Useful for cutting large, solid sections of exotic and nickel-based alloys and high-hardness steels, Gladiator Pulsator blades from L.S. Starrett Company feature a customized tooth edge and bi-metal construction with alloy steel backing for maximizing wear and heat resistance.

 

The tooth design incorporates a variable tooth height and set; triple-tempered M42 HSS teeth, with 8 percent cobalt (RC 67-69); and up to a 12-degree rake angle. These features combined are said to   ease penetration while providing good chip clearance, improved surface finishes and fast, straight cuts.  In addition, variable pitch teeth can reduce vibration and noise levels, the company says.

 

The band saw blades cut two shapes—square and circular—and are furnished in six widths and thicknesses, from 1" × 0.035" to 3 1/8" × 0.063".
