Original Press Release:
Bosch Edge for Metal Recip Blades Last Longer, Cut Faster & Cleaner Than Competition
Mount Prospect, Ill., January XX, 2009 - The toughest materials call for the toughest blades, but it's not enough to just be tough. The blade must be built to last and cut faster and cleaner than the rest. That's why Bosch introduced their latest Edge for Metal Demolition reciprocating saw blades.
The blades feature Bosch's Micro-Edge Technology(TM), a patented design and manufacturing process that results in longer blade life, faster cutting and increased durability with teeth that stay sharper over time.
The powder metal steel alloy minimizes heat build-up for longer life and Bosch's patented 2 x 2 tooth geometry delivers faster and cleaner cuts by effectively removing debris. The first set of teeth cut more aggressively and the smaller reinforced teeth follow. This alternating tooth pitch increases cutting speeds by 20 percent.
The teeth are protected by Bosch's own Micro-blast(TM) technology that cleanly defines the cutting surface as opposed to rough or uneven teeth that will tear-out much easier.
The blades are taller and thicker than competitive blades to reduce vibration when cutting and results in a straighter cut, ideal when accuracy is a must.
The blades come in 6-inch and 9-inch lengths with kerfs of .035" (14+18 TPI), .042" (8+10 TPI) and .062" (8+10 TPI). The 14+18 blades are ideally suited for medium gauge metals. The 8+10 for Heavy Metal is designed for thick gauges metals and the 8+10 for Metal Demolition is made for tearing stuff up.
