With an RC hardness of 67 on the tooth edge, the Bi-Metal blade provides a longer sawing blade life.
Date Posted: 3/4/2014
Wood-Mizer LLC introduces the heavy duty, high performance Bi-Metal blade. Engineered for production sawing, the innovative Bi-Metal blade will complement Wood-Mizer’s extensive line of bandsaw blades.
With an RC hardness of 67 on the tooth edge, the Bi-Metal blade provides a longer sawing blade life, especially for cutting abrasive, exotic wood species. The tooth is manufactured with a ribbon of high speed steel that is electron beam welded to a high alloy backing material. This high alloy backing material offers a combination of durability and fatigue resistance, enabling a flex life that is 2-3 times longer than carbon blades.
“The new Bi-Metal blade will give you the best of both worlds,” said Wood-Mizer’s COO, Darryl Floyd. “It is less costly than other Stellite® and carbide blades and extremely easy to maintain.”
The slightly increased width, compared to other blades in its class, provides more strength and stability resulting in faster sawing while maintaining accuracy. Both Bi-Metal blade options feature 7/8" tooth spacing with a 10 degree hook angle and are available in either 1.36" X .042" or 1.635" X .05" sizes.
With the addition of the Bi-Metal blade, Wood-Mizer now offers blades in four distinct brands to meet every type of wood cutting application, from green softwoods to abrasive and exotic hardwoods.
