Non-Melt Saw Blades
Amana Tool, manufacturer of industrial-quality carbidetipped,
solid carbide and replacement carbide cutting
tools, has announced the immediate availability of its nonmelt
circular saw blades for cutting plastic materials. The
special-application carbide-tipped saw blades are
designed to produce crisp, clean cuts in acrylics such as
Plexiglas® and Lucite®, polycarbonates such as Lexan®
and other plastics. Each blade features a unique triplechip
grind (MTCG) and 2° negative hook angle to produce
less heat than standard saw blades, eliminating “chipwelding,”
or melting of materials.
Amana’s non-melt saw blade
bodies are lasercut
steel and roll tensioned
Carbide tips are manufactured,
brazed and ground to Amana Tool’s specifications,
enabling smooth, accurate cuts and longer-lasting cutting
performance between sharpenings. The blades feature
copper plugs to reduce noise, minimize vibrations, prevent
heat buildup and help eliminate blade warping. Each
blade is dynamically balanced to ensure clean, true cuts
with virtually no runout.
Non-melt blades are available in diameters ranging from
8” to 16” and number of teeth ranging from 64 to 120.
