Manufacturers demand high-quality bandsaw blades for the numerous benefits that contribute to improved cutting performance, efficiency, and overall cost-effectiveness in various cutting applications. Key advantages of a high-quality blade include:
As a manufacturer of bandsaw blades, you will be familiar with the issues that can result in poor-quality blades, overly sharp teeth that chip, cracking in the gullet between saw teeth and a surface that will not readily accept anti-oxidation treatments or branding.
But there is a well-proven technology to resolve these issues:
Wet blasting, also known as wet abrasive blasting or vapor blasting, is a surface finishing process that involves using a mixture of water, abrasive media, and compressed air to clean, deburr, and finish a variety of materials. Learn how the wet blasting process works by visiting our ‘What is wet blasting?’ page. When it comes to finishing bandsaw blades, wet blasting can offer numerous benefits:
One of our customers recently conducted tests on their reciprocating saw blades to determine how coating preparation was affected by switching from dry blasting to wet blasting.
They found blade life was increased by 3.5 times and cutting speed was increased by 100%.
Our Profelis wet blasting machine, details below, has been designed for the rapid in-line finish of bandsaw blades. Watch our video to learn how the Profelis works and its many benefits.
Wet blasting gives you more efficient, more seamless and more effective production. And for high-precision wet blasting, there’s only one name you need to know: Vapormatt.
