Bandsaw Blade for Metal FAQ
Should I use bandsaw blades or circular blades for cutting metal?
There is less waste produced when using metal cutting band saw blades than circular saw blades because they are generally thinner. The metal cutting bandsaw blades are longer and run at slower speeds.
How do you produce bandsaw blades in Canada?
We receive the band saw blades for metal cutting from our supplier WIKUS located in Germany in coil stock. Once you place your order, we specifically cut the size of blade to the length you require. Bandsaw blades are also available for sale in coil stock.
What are band saw blades made of?
Metal cutting band saw blades are made of four main groups from WIKUS; carbon bandsaw blades, bimetal bandsaw blades, carbide band saw blades and diamond bandsaw blades. Carbon steel band saw blades, bimetal bandsaw blades and coated or uncoated carbide-tipped bandsaw blades are widely used for the cutting of wood, steels and nonferrous metals.
On the other hand, carbide-grit and diamond-grit bandsaw blades are used for more exotic applications such as: silicon, fiberglass and abrasive building materials. These blades are specifically ordered from WIKUS directly for you. We do not have stock as the applications become extremely specific.
What is the most common band saw blade we sell?
Bimetal bandsaw blades are the most common band saw blades we sell. They have a cutting edge (teeth) made of M42 HSS material. M42 is widely used in manufacturing industries because of its superior wear resistance qualities compared to carbon blades. It also allowed for higher cutting speeds and shorter cycle times.
Bimetal bandsaw blades are also sold in X3000 HSS material, which is exclusive to our supplier WIKUS. The bimetal bandsaw blades X3000 have a high hardness and toughness which is perfect for difficult to machine materials because of hits high cutting edge stability.
How long does a blade last for?
There are a few things that determine how long a band saw blade will last.
First, it is important to choose a high quality band saw blade for metal with an aligned smooth weld. Second, the band saw machine must be kept in good condition, this includes both the wheels and guides. Remember to never keep the saw running and the bandsaw blade tensioned when not in use. Third, the operator is a factor as well, they must feed the material to the band saw blade firmly but only as fast as the bandsaw blade can cut the material, excess force can lead to shorter blade life.
