Factors that Influence the Blade-Life

Factors that influence the blade-life of a band saw blade

Prolonging the life of a band saw blade can lead to enormous savings potential for a company because it means that tooling and administrative costs can be reduced significantly. Several factors, above and beyond the workpiece itself, impact on the blade-life.

Factors

In particular, these influencing factors include:

  • Workpiece (form and material)
  • Tool (geometry on the cutting part, cutting material, coating)
  • Workpiece and tool tension (vibration)
  • Tool machine
  • Cutting data, e.g. cutting speed and feed speed
  • Other underlying conditions, such as cooling lubrication
