Each blade proposed by Guabo is designed to cut in an optimal way every kind of workable material, such as steel, structural steel, stainless steel, carbon steel, alloy steel, light alloy, exotic and nickel based alloy, ferrous and non-ferrous metal, aluminum, composites, plastics, rubbers, fiberglass, graphite, ceramics, wood, bronze, copper, brass and paper products.
As evidenced by the constant task in research and technical development, Guabo recognizes the importance that the choice of the right blade, and the related parameters, has for the customers, depending also on the kind of material to work. The following parameters are absolutely fundamental for an optimal result and a long life of the blade. For these reasons, a highly expert staff is always ready and available to help and support the customer in the process of choosing, buying and using the product.
In detail the main parameters to consider are:
The Guabo band saw blades are made in different sizes and materials in order to answer in the best way to each cutting requirement and each kind of machining.
The range at the customers’ disposal includes bimetal band saw blades, as they are made by two bands of different type of steel, connected thanks to a welding process. In detail, the body of the blade, made of an extremely flexible carbon steel with a hardness of about 50 HRC, matches with a HSS M42 or M51 wire (high speed steel + cobalt) with a hardness of about 67-69 HRC. The great rigidity of the wire allows regularity during the machining, together with a perfect verticality of the cut, both fundamental requirements in order to obtain high performance. In particular the M51 quality allows a further increase in the hardness level, making the blade suitable for the cut of materials particularly tough, as steel, stainless steel, bronze, copper, brass and light alloys.
So the main benefits of bimetal blades are the extreme versatility, the great flexibility of the body and the high resistance to wear of the cutting part. Every single tooth of the blade is made of high speed steel, is tough, durable and extremely powerful. An innovative system of heat treatment allows to obtain a structure exceptionally efficient.
The cutting part can be made also in hard metal. In this case at the high speed steel body is combined a part with teeth made of hard metal.
This kind of blades ensure an extreme hardness and wear resistance, and is dedicated mainly to the machining of materials such as alloys, in particular nickel-based alloys and titanium. A complete range of blades featuring different set types, trapezoidal tooth shape, different hardness and metal carbides mixtures ensure top performances and benefits such as reduced vibration cuts along with clean and smooth surfaces, speed rate, high performance, productivity and efficiency.
In case of more particular cuts, the wire of the blade can be realized also in diamond, a kind of coating characterized by a hardness of about 9000 HV.
These blades are used for the machining of extremely hard and abrasive materials such as granite, marble, glass, quartz, carbon fibers, silicon carbide, reinforced plastics and graphite.
The main benefit is that the diamond is characterized by the maximum hardness possible and allows the cut of any kind of material, ensuring at the same time a perfect final surface. In addition, it is resistant to high stresses generated by high speeds of rotation.
A carbon band saw blade is made of tempered steel and hardened teeth through a heat process in order to offer high performance.
It can be used for general purpose and low cost cutting, but also for non-alloy steel with low resistance, light alloys, plastics and wood cutting when it is necessary to obtain a clean workpiece.
The benefit of an extreme flexible body of the blade together with hardened teeth with an hardness of about 62-65 HRC, is that this ensure reliability, wear resistance and consequently a longer life of the product. Moreover this kind of blade can undergo high forces, providing straighter cuts.
Carbon steel body blade, M42, M51 M81 cobalt based high speed steel teeth Highly versatile blame, suited for a wide range of materials such as alloyed building, steels, stainless steel, bronze, copper, brass, light alloys and iron.
Steel body spring blades, featuring brazed hard metal teeth for great performance, enhanced cutting rate, significantly reduced manufacturing time and costs.
Proper break-in procedures guarantee a perfect removal of material, a great final result and a long life of the blade. Optimal working conditions and accurate cutting parameters are the right premise to ensure high performance. Before the first use it is important to check that the tension of the blade corresponds to 300 N/mm2 and to verify the condition of the coolant, as this will prevent the overheating of the blade and the attachment of the chips to the blade or to the work piece.
