Texas Stairs and Rails and the Q 501 Structural Band Saw Blade

The Q 501 Structural Band Saw Blade is helping Texas Stairs and Rails in Houston, Texas rebuild the critical infrastructure of our country.

Designed to handle the toughest structural cutting applications,  the Q 501 Structural Band Saw Blade has a robust tooth design for faster cutting rates to optimize your band sawing productivity. A proprietary heat treat process to the blade helps minimize tooth chipping when cutting bundles of square and round tubing, angle iron, H-beams and I-beams. The heavy tooth set design helps avoid potential blade pinching when cutting large cross sections of structural material. Tooth geometry is designed for quieter cutting in interrupted cuts.

Testing proved this blade outlasts the old style matrix bands by 20%. With 8% Cobalt and a tooth engineered to cut between 67-69 Rockwell Hardness, the Q 501 is designed to handle the toughest structural cutting applications.

The Q 501 features a unique High Speed Steel, Bi-Metal blade design tooth set on each blade, to maximize cutting performance while minimizing kerf loss. Technically, it’s the heavy set teeth that  provide extra blade clearance to minimize binding or pinching, when beam stresses are relieved and/or when bundles move during cutting.

Because of its tooth geometry, it allows faster cutting rates and increases productivity with less noise. Additionally, due to the special engineering in the blade, a smoother finish is achieved on the material being cut. The Q 501 Structural Band Saw Blade is the blade to consider when you need a blade that can “go the distance”, when cutting structural materials!
