Metal Cutting Bandsaw Blades
Our metal cutting bandsaw blades are made from high quality steel to ensure sharpness and durability. They can also can be used for general purpose applications using low alloy steel and non-ferrous metals and plastics.
Available in the following widths:
- 6mm (¼")
- 9.5mm (⅜")
- 13mm (½")
- 19mm (¾")
You can choose carbon steel blades or bimetal blades depending on the type of metal you wish to cut.
Carbon steel blades can be used to cut the following: mild steels, aluminium, copper, brass, bronze, and other non ferrous metals.
If you only plan to use your machine every now and again, or only have a few pieces to cut, a carbon steel blade will work fine. If you use your machine often and plan to cut a lot of material, we suggest using a bi-metal blade.
The best way to describe a carbon steel blade is it is an economical band saw blade used for general purpose cutting.
Bimetal blades are metal cutting blades. They are used on band saws to cut carbon steel, tool steel, structural steel, stainless steel, pipes and tubes, die steel, angles and flat stock, and mixed metal applications. Bimetal blades can cut ferrous or nonferrous metals such as aluminium, brass, bronze, steel, or titanium.
What are bi-metal blades made from?
They are made from 2 metals – M42 tool steel is welded via an electron beam to a flexible backer (They typically last 3-5 times as long as a carbon blade (flexback and hardback.)
