Saws with interchangeable teeth
Austrian carbide and tool specialist Boehlerit is exploring new paths when it comes to sawing and will be launching the "SawTec 2.0" tool system with replaceable teeth, an intelligent, next-generation machining solution. Saw blades are used by the metal-processing industry all over the world for separating rods, blocks, pipes, rails and profiles. In most cases, saw teeth are welded on, which is labour-intensive and costly especially for large saw diameters, given the need for re-sharpening and the logistics involved.
Kapfenberg-based development pioneer Boehlerit has reacted to this situation by creating the innovative "SawTec 2.0" tool system, which offers a solution for large-diameter saw blades, using screw-mounted, interchangeable saw teeth. A tangible benefit of this product is that the screw-mounted carbide saw teeth of the SawTec 2.0 are easy and quick to exchange. The "SawLock®" clamping system ensures stability, efficiency, precision and a high degree of flexibility. A range of tooth geometries are available to enable users to choose the right blade for steel, stainless steel and highly heat-resistant steel, depending on the material to be sawn.
The initial programme will consist of interchangeable teeth with a width of 9 mm, in three cutting geometries (SP, SM, SS) and two cutting grades (BCP40X and BCM40X), suitable for all standard steel, stainless steel and highly heat-resistant alloys. The interchangeable teeth come with a state-of-the-art coating that increases the cutting surfaces by up to 200 % in m2, while increasing the cutting speed at the same time. Saw blades are available in a diameter range of 600 to 1500 mm, with the drilling hole for holding the spindle being executed according to customer requirements.
Users who need to keep an eye on costs for their sawing operations and are looking for a cost-effective solution will make the right choice with the "Sawtec 2.0" tool system with interchangeable teeth by Boehlerit!
