Scrutinise Your Performance, Durability, and Cost Needs
Performance, durability, and cost are all important factors when it comes to choosing which band saw blade is right for all your requirements. Being able to get the lowest cost per cut, while keeping acceptable levels of surface finish is the ideal solution for guaranteeing continuous productivity and profitability. Remember that these factors are the first step when thinking about selecting blades for optimal metal-cutting production and profit.
The demands and cutting preferences in any metal fabrication industry involve different band saws to cut solid materials, heavy-walled tubing, different structural shapes, bundles, and hard materials such as steels.
There is no such thing as a single blade that can satisfy all the different requirements, but you need to have to decide whether to purchase a dedicated band saw blade for every type of cut as required. It is essential that you change the band saw blade after every application; or choose a band saw blade that will work for several cutting applications. The last option is usually the most common choice.
