The blade’s path is kept steady by a vertical bandsaw, also known as a contour saw, as the workpiece is moved across it.
Complex shapes and angles can be carved out with this kind of saw. Using a power assist device or manually feeding the part onto the blade are both options. This kind of metal-cutting bandsaw frequently has an integrated blade welder. This enables the operator to perform quick repairs to damaged blades or quickly build new blades.
It also enables the operator to do interior cuts by cutting the blade on purpose, routing it through the centre of a part, and then rewelding it.
These saws frequently have an integrated air blower to cool the blade and blast chips away from the cut area so the user can see the job well.
There is a woodworking variant of this type of saw available as well. The woodworking kind typically has a considerably lighter build and does not have a welder, coolant, or power feed mechanism. Metal-cutting bandsaw blades have also seen improvements.
The standard today is bimetal blades with high-speed steel teeth, including cobalt grades. New tooth geometry and pitch developments have led to higher production rates and longer blade lives.
Cryogenic treatment of blades and the use of new materials and techniques like M51 steel have enabled researchers to achieve achievements that were previously thought to be unattainable. Moreover, new devices have been created to automate the welding of bandsaw blades.
The Global Contour Band saw Blades market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Band saw blades coated with CUBOGRIT® and coated with cubic boron nitride have been launched to the product line by WIKUS-Sägenfabrik.
The hardness of cubic boron nitrite, which is second only to diamond in terms of known materials, is enhanced by its resistance to heat, chemicals, and abrasion in addition to its hardness and strength.
The first CBN-coated band saw blade technology is available to users with CUBOGRIT®, enabling them to economically saw 3D hard alloys and hardened ferrous materials up to 70 HRC. The latest band saw blades from WIKUS will be displayed at the EMO Hannover metalworking trade show.
