Original Press Release
Simonds Saw Introduces CWT Carbide Tipped Band Saw Blades.
Press release date: February 27, 2017
Engineered tooth set produces aggressive, faster cutting action in production sawing.
Simonds Saw (www.simondssaw.com) – a leading manufacturer of premium quality band saw blades and files, and inventor of carbide tipped band saw blade technology – has introduced CWT Carbide Tipped Band Saw Blades for demanding production cutting operations such as in steel service centers, foundries and aerospace sawing applications. CWT Blades are ideal for aluminum block, aluminum gates and risers, aluminum automation (Mossner), Inconel and nickel-based alloys.
Similar to the “California Wing Tip” tooth formation used in circular saw blades, CWT Blades have been engineered in a three-tooth set pattern with positive rake geometry. This provides exceptionally aggressive, faster cutting action and penetration, for increased performance in production sawing applications.
“Our CWT Blades have been producing outstanding results, significantly out-cutting blades used in foundry and aerospace applications,” said Dale Petts, Simonds Saw’s Global Product Manager.
Simonds CWT Carbide Tipped Blades are available in five widths: 1-1/4”x .042, 1-1/2”x .050, 2” x .062, 2-5/8”x .062 and 3-1/8”x .062 and are shipped in 150’ coils. Variable tooth pitch (TPI) options include 2-3, 1.9-2.1, 1.4-1.8 and .9-1.1 teeth per inch. Blades are furnished with plastic capping to protect teeth against damage in transit and handling.
