31st of January 2019 - WIKUS saw factory will present its new PRIMAR® M42 bimetal band saw blade to the public for the first time at the INTEC International Trade Fair for machine tools, manufacturing and automation technology in Hall 2, Stand F34 from the 5th to the 8th of February 2019 in Leipzig.
Due to its variable tooth pitch and distribution, the new product is suitable for a wide range of small and medium-sized workpieces. In the so-called Level 1 Segment* for universal, applicable-capable standard saw blades, PRIMAR® M42 impresses with a particularly favourable price-performance ratio.
Reduced costs per cut with improved surface finish cutting
The new bimetal band saw blade provides the user with numerous advantages such as longer service life and a wide range of application possibilities: It can not only be utilised in industrial sawing applications but also in workshop operation for profiles and solid materials of all metals up to a thickness of 1,000 N/mm², which thereby means fewer belt changes are required. The M42 tooth cutting edge with its adapted clamping angle as well as the optimised variable tooth pitch with standard setting ensures the accustomed WIKUS precision in the sawing process as well as ensuring lower noise emissions. Production processes with Superfinish increase service life as well as process reliability This thereby reduces costs per cut and achieves an excellent price-performance ratio.
Along with the PRIMAR® M42, WIKUS will also demonstrate Level 2 bandsaws* at INTEC, whereby these deal with the latest, state-of-the-art production processes which will also be utilised , also including: MARATHON® M42 , the most economical bandsaw for medium to large workpieces as well as PROFLEX® M42, a bandsaw especially for profiles. The process increases the efficiency of the tried and tested WIKUS bimetal bandsaw blades and can additionally increase the productivity of the customer's sawing processes. The glossy, smooth band surface area protect the band guides of the machine and therefore enables a higher fatigue strength. Furthermore, the reduced mechanical friction load on the carrier band reduces the risk of band breakage.
In addition, WIKUS will also present their FUTURA® in Leipzig, the high-performance best seller bandsaw blade from the carbide product range as well as the new KREOS®precision circular saw blade, which sets new benchmarks in terms of economy and cutting performance when machining thin-walled profiles and pipes.
Optimal setting for the cut parameter due to the ParaMaster®-App
The ParaMaster®-App supports the user during the optimal adjustment of the machinery, whereby the cutting results in the sawing process can be improved and significant cost savings can be achieved. All the bandsaws which are produced in the new process also feature circumferential band printing including a QR code for increased user benefit. This enables customers to quickly and easily access ParaMaster®, the on-line cutting data-based programme from WIKUS. The user can scan the respective QR code directly from the App which therefore enables the data for the bandsaw to be transferred automatically into ParaMaster® .
Note regarding product classification:
In order to facilitate product selection, WIKUS groups their band saw blades into the three following performance classes.
The WIKUS product range programme also includes various special designs for individual applications. In addition, WIKUS provides special bands in the form of special products for high-performance sawing technology and very individual applications.
