Material Compatibility and Design Intent
The 7.25-inch 60-tooth non-ferrous metal and wood cutting blade is explicitly designed for efficient cutting operations involving non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, copper, brass, and bronze. Additionally, this versatile blade is well-suited for working with plywood and various timber types, making it a valuable asset for a diverse range of cutting applications.
Tooth Count and Configuration
The blade features a 60-tooth configuration, providing a delicate balance between cutting speed and surface finish quality. This tooth count ensures the efficient removal of material while minimizing the risk of chip-out and tear-out, resulting in smooth, clean cuts.
Blade Diameter and Arbor Hole Size
The blade's diameter measures 7.25 inches (184 mm), offering a compact size that is compatible with various cutting machines. Furthermore, the arbor hole is designed to accommodate a 5/8-inch KO, ensuring a secure and stable connection between the blade and the cutting device.
Tooth Geometry and Grind
The blade utilizes a Triple Chip Grind (TCG) tooth geometry, which alternates between a flat raker tooth and a trapezoidal tooth. This design effectively manages the cutting forces while providing an optimal cutting edge for slicing through non-ferrous metals, wood, and soft plastics. Moreover, the zero-degree rake angle contributes to a smoother, more controlled cut.
The blade features a kerf width of 0.079 inches (2 mm), providing a thin and precise cut that minimizes material waste and reduces cutting resistance. This slender kerf enhances the overall cutting performance, particularly when working with delicate materials or intricate designs.
As previously mentioned, the 7.25-inch 60-tooth non-ferrous metal and wood cutting blade is compatible with various material substrates, including aluminum, wood, and soft plastics. Its design caters to a wide range of cutting applications, ensuring adaptability in multiple scenarios.
The cutting blade is designed with resharpening capabilities, allowing users to maintain optimal cutting performance over time. By periodically resharpening the blade, you can prolong its service life, reduce downtime, and enhance the return on investment for this cutting tool.
