A new generation of saw blades for stainless steel
04 April 2019
Kinkelder, a Netherlands-based company that distributes all around the globe including North America, has further developed its TCT product range for solid cutting applications.
The company’s new generation of CX series saw blades makes use of the latest insights in design, materials and production technology, leading to an ideal squareness and surface finish.
In applications with poor chip evacuation, the chips often get intertwined and clog the sawing machine. With the most recent updates to body design, an increase of up to 50% blade life has been achieved. The new design is being used in the CX 1, CX 6, CX 7 and Champion SL saw blades for tooth pitches higher than 12 mm.
Extensive testing has shown that many applications require fine-tuning of tooth geometries and carbide grades. Depending on the steel grade and material diameter, the optimal geometry and carbide grade are being used for dedicated products. Kinkelder’s CX1-H saw blade is being recommended for cutting steel with a tensile strength of 900 N/mm2 and higher, as well as large diameter ferritic-, martensitic- and duplex stainless steels.
For large diameter austenitic steel (> 35 mm), the CX6-L saw blade is being introduced, incorporating a newly-designed geometry. The CX6-S blade is dedicated for high performance cutting of all stainless steels (ferritic, martensitic, duplex and austenitic) with diameters up to 35 mm.
