The Starrett Intenss Pro bimetal band saw blade has an Intenss tooth design, a positive rake angle, a variable pitch, and a raker tooth set for high-production cuts in steel with a Rockwell hardness up to C45, tool steel, stainless steel, nickel-based alloys, and nonferrous alloys. The teeth are made of triple-tempered M-42 high-speed cobalt steel for strength with an alloy steel backing strip that resists fatigue. The blade can make cuts in solid, structural, and tubular shapes, and bundles. The Intenss tooth design has an aggressive positive rake angle of up to 12 degrees for fast, efficient cutting and a fine surface finish. It also reduces vibration and noise levels, and prevents chipping and stripping compared to standard blades. It has a raker tooth set, which alternates between left-leaning, right-leaning, and unset teeth. The blade has a variable pitch, so the tooth size and gullet depth vary in order to reduce noise levels and vibrations and to remove chips efficiently.
Band saw blades are long, continuous bands of metal that loop around the wheels of band saws and can make straight or curved cuts in metal, wood, stone, plastic, and other materials. When purchasing band saw blades, consider the application, as this will affect the tooth rake, tooth set, pitch, and size of the blade. Band saw blades are available with a positive rake angle or a straight (also called zero) rake angle, and with a raker, wavy, or alternate tooth set. Pitch (the number of teeth per inch or per 25.4 mm) affects the type of finish and may be constant or variable. Band saw blades are available in different lengths and width to fit the requirements of specific band saws.
The L.S. Starrett Company manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology and testing equipment, and saw blade products. The company was founded in 1880 and is headquartered in Athol, MA.
