CARBIDE TIPPED BLADES
Simmons’ Carbide Tipped bandsaw blades excel at cutting exceptionally hard or abrasive materials. Carbide Tipped blades are designed to withstand the intense heat generated from cutting high temperature alloys and exotic metals. Additionally, each tooth features a multi-chip grind, which helps to provide a clean finish even as the blade rips through ultra-tough metals.
Steel Grade Carbide Blades
Originally designed to cut ferrous metals, steel grade carbide blades have proven efficient at cutting a wide variety of material. These blades feature a unique tooth geometry, enabling better chip separation while reducing noise and increasing the cutting rate. Depending on your cutting application you may opt for teeth coated with a special material to increase cutting performance and extend the blade’s overall life.
Aluminum Grade Carbide Blades
Aluminum Grade Carbide blades are designed to cut non-ferrous metals, specifically aluminum. Depending on the Carbide grade chosen, these blades are best suited for cutting slabs and plates or removing gates and risers in an aluminum foundry setting.
Recommended cutting applications for Carbide Tipped blades:
- Stainless steel
- Nickel-based alloy
- Cast iron
Consistently delivering high-quality blades has been key to Simmons’ success throughout the years. As part of our reliable welds guarantee, if a Simmons blade breaks at the weld, just send it back to us. While we cannot guarantee that we will replace Carbide Tipped blades, we’ll evaluate the issue and reweld the blade if possible.
We stand behind our workmanship, and even when we’re not at fault for blade issues, we frequently invest in analyzing the cause of the blade’s failure in order to educate our customers and help them correct the source of the issue in their facility.
The hook tooth’s 10° positive cutting angle makes it the perfect choice for cutting through solid steel, thick-walled tubes, and higher alloy metals.
