Band Saw Blade Tooth Forms
Get the right cutting efficiency of your band saw blade with the right tooth form. The shape of the cutting edge of the blade tooth can make a big difference in the life of the blade, the cutting noise, the cut finish, and the chip carrying capacity.
- Variable Tooth Form: Reduced noise and vibration with the variable gullet design and tooth spacing. Used for slower cuttings rates than a variable positive tooth structure.
- Variable Positive Tooth Form: Reduced noise and vibration with the variable gullet design and tooth spacing. Get faster cutting & smoother cuts along with a longer blade life.
- Standard Tooth Form: Use for general purpose cutting in a wide variety of applications.
- Skip Tooth Form: A wide gullet tooth design is perfect for non-metallic applications including wood, plastics, cork, and composition materials.
- Hook Tooth Form: Similar to the Skip tooth design, the hook tooth structure is a high raker blade used in applications that produce a discontinuous chip (cast iron) as well as non-metallic materials.
