Bandsaw steel, also known as bandsaw blade steel, refers to the material used to make bandsaw blades. Bandsaw blades are long, continuous looped blades that are used in bandsaw machines for cutting a wide range of materials, including wood, metal, plastic, and more. The choice of bandsaw steel is crucial to ensure the blade’s performance and longevity.

Here are some key aspects of bandsaw steel:

  1. Composition: Bandsaw steel is typically made from high-carbon or alloy steel, which provides the necessary hardness and durability required for cutting various materials. The specific composition can vary depending on the type of bandsaw blade and the materials it is designed to cut.
  2. Tooth Design: Bandsaw blades have teeth along their length that are specially designed for cutting specific materials. The tooth design and geometry may vary depending on whether the blade is intended for cutting wood, metal, plastic, or other materials.
  3. Width and Thickness: Bandsaw blades come in various widths and thicknesses to accommodate different cutting tasks. Wider blades are used for resawing and cutting thick materials, while narrower blades are used for intricate and curved cuts.
  4. Tooth Set: The tooth set refers to the way the teeth are bent or set alternately to create a cutting clearance. This design allows the blade to make a wide enough cut to prevent binding while cutting.
  5. TPI (Teeth Per Inch): Bandsaw blades are available in various TPI configurations, which determine the number of teeth per inch of the blade. Higher TPI blades are suitable for finer and smoother cuts, while lower TPI blades are used for rougher and faster cuts.
  6. Hardness: Bandsaw steel is heat-treated to achieve the necessary hardness for cutting. The hardness can vary depending on the material being cut, with harder blades often used for metal cutting.
  7. Coating: Some bandsaw blades are coated with materials like carbide or high-speed steel to enhance their cutting performance and extend their lifespan, especially when cutting hard or abrasive materials.
  8. Applications: Bandsaw blades find application in a wide range of industries, including woodworking, metalworking, plastics manufacturing, and more. They are used for tasks such as ripping, resawing, contour cutting, and metal cutting.
  9. Maintenance: Like any cutting tool, bandsaw blades require maintenance. This includes regular sharpening or replacement when the teeth become dull or damaged.
  10. Blade Length: The length of a bandsaw blade is specific to the bandsaw machine it is intended for. The blade must be the appropriate length to fit the machine’s wheels and guide system.
