Manufactured from high carbon steel, the Hardback blade is ideal for cutting through medium to high-density foams, wood, non-ferrous metals, and mild steel. Its hardened backing allows the blade to be tightened to a greater tension than the Flexback blade. This greater tension, coupled with individually hardened teeth, leaves the Hardback blade as the unrivaled choice for truly straight cuts through even the toughest applications.
Recommended cutting applications for Hardback blades:
- Medium-density foam
- High-density foam
- Non-ferrous metals
- Mild steel
- Wood products, including: doors, furniture, cabinetry, pallets, crates, packaging, and more.
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 let us know and we’ll replace that blade for you.
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.
