” Be Sharp – Use BAHCO Bandsaws “
In 1969 Bahco pioneered a new technique that combined the best characteristics of tough spring-steel and wear-resistant high-speed steel.
The two materials are welded together in a high-vacuum environment. The teeth are milled from the high-speed steel, with the spring-steel providing excellent flexibility.
Bahco machine-actuated saws offer optimum cutting characteristics, long life and fast-cutting operation. Bahco flagship product, Sandflex® ‘the unbreakable blade’, is the clear choice where productivity, cost-percut, safety and environmental aspects are considered.
Continuous improvement and investment in research and development has led to innovative, high-performance products for general-purpose and production cutting applications.
Bahco offer many patented products and features, from our unique Easy Cut design which simplifies complex blade selection, to the latest ‘set’ and ‘unset’ high performance carbide blades for the most demanding and complex cutting applications – such as commercial and military aerospace, power generation and other high-technology industries.
In this chapter, Bahco have included terminology, toothpitch selection tables, speed selection data, toothshape guides, for both bi-metal and carbide blades.
Bahco have also provided some tips on troubleshooting, and assorted cutting aids used by bahco’s users involved in production cutting applications.
This includes Bahco patented BandCalc™ programme which is designed to give you advice on blade selection by providing data on machine type, material shapes and sizes.
Quality is number one priority for bahco – and product consistency is part of that priority. This is achieved through Bahco’s quality forward system, which is frameworked under ISO 9001- 2000.
Bahco strive to continuously improve the quality management system, focussing on customer needs and satisfaction. Continuous improvement is fundamental to bahco production processes. Bahco believe that making improvements every day helps it to continuously develop bahco products.
BI-METAL BANDSAW BLADE
High-speed steel tooth tips, combined with flexible alloy-steel backing material results in the most cost effective bandsaw blades for most metal sawing applications.
Bi-metal bandsaw blades cover most market requirements, including multi-purpose blades and contour cutting, cutting tubes and profiles, foundry cutting and production cutting.
The Sandflex® bandsaw blades cut different types of steel (structural, machining, quenched, tempered, high speed, nitriding) as well as brass, copper, nickel, cast iron, titanium and many other materials.
CARBIDE BANDSAW BLADE
High-performance backing steel and optimized carbide grades yield premium band sawing performance. These products cut faster and last longer than any other bandsaw blade in a wide variety of sawing applications.
Specially designed for the high-efficiency cutting of difficult and abrasive materials, and the high-performance cutting of large and difficult to cut work pieces.
EASY TO USE
Bahco’s patented anti-tooth-striping design creates a blade that lasts longer, and will not strip teeth like other blades, allowing the operator to spend more time cutting and less time changing saw blades.
Choose Easy Cut for all general purpose bandsaw applications – the choice is easy.
