Starrett Intros TENNAX-PRO
The L.S. Starrett Co., has introduced TENNAX-PRO Bi-Metal Band Saw Blades designed to cut challenging tubes, pipes, profiles and structural shapes in both single pieces and bundles. Featuring lower noise and vibration as well as improved cutting performance, TENNAX-PRO blades outlast and outperform competitive blades, making up to 25 percent more cuts per blade, Starrett claimed.
The blades feature high-speed M-42 steel teeth with a new special tooth geometry/profile that optimizes the tip profile for tube, pipe and other structural cuts, dissipating stress during cutting for greater resistance to wear and tooth breakage. In addition, the TENNAX-PRO blades are designed with an exclusive tooth-setting process which minimizes pinching when cutting structural and bundled materials.
TENNAX-PRO blades are ideal for cutting a wide range of materials including carbon steel, carbon steel alloys, stainless steel and nonferrous materials, in addition to pipes, tubes, structural and bundled materials. The blades are available in widths of 3/4, 1, 1 1/4, 1 1/2, 2 and 2 5/8 inches.

. Pat Mooney’s Panther is Fully Automatic
The PMI Panther H-500S is a dual-column, horizontal band saw with fully automatic operation. It comes standard with an NC Control and a user-friendly touchscreen. The touchscreen control allows for easy job setup and access to diagnostic information.
The feed rate and material indexing are servo-controlled. Both systems have a servo motor with an encoder, servo drive and ball screw. The feed rate is entered into the touchscreen control so the operator can set a precise cutting rate. By fully controlling the feed rate, the machine can run at higher cutting rates by utilizing carbide-tipped saw blades on carbon or hard-to-cut materials.
The H-500S has a round sawing capacity of 20 inches. It uses a 2-inch-wide band saw blade, weighs a little over 10,000 pounds and is built to cut large
sections of material.

. IKS Delivers Flat, Parallel Blades
It’s difficult enough to install a 12-foot shear blade and you shouldn’t have to waste your time with blades that are not flat or parallel. In addition to providing three different grades of steel for replacement shear blades, International Knife & Saw now offers the tightest tolerances available on flatness and parallelism for all of its replacement blades.
IKS takes all the necessary steps during the manufacturing process to make your job as easy as possible when it’s time to install your replacement blades. Along with one of the longest heat-treat furnaces available in North America, IKS utilizes heavy duty fixturing during the heat-treating process, guaranteeing you are getting the flattest and most parallel blades available on the market, the company claimed.
All blades are clamped and heavily torqued during the heat treat process, enabling them to hold the flatness to less than 0.003 inches and 0.028 inches parallelism on the entire length of a 148-inch blade.
