Q501 Cutting 10″ Pipe on the Trajan 510 Band Saw Machine
We realized there was a need in the fabrication and structural steel business for a rugged band saw blade that wouldn’t pinch in large cross sections or strip teeth while cutting Tubing.
So we made the Q501, We stated to design it with a 8% Cobalt and a tooth engineered to cut between 67-69 Rockwell Hardness, then added a heavy tooth set design that helps avoid potential blade pinching when cutting large cross sections of structural materials. The tooth geometry has also been designed for faster cutting rates during interrupted cuts with less noise. We ended up with a blade that can handle even the largest cross-section of structural material, while avoiding blade pinching during the cut increasing production rates and lowering the sawing costs to fabricator. The Q501 is designed to handle the toughest structural cutting applications. The Q501 Band Saw Blade has a robust tooth design for faster cutting rates, to optimize your band sawing productivity. A proprietary heat-treating process on the blade helps minimize tooth chipping when cutting bundles of square and round tubing, angle iron, H-beams and I-beams.
Our IC Structural Blade features a M42 wide set blade design to maximize cutting performance while minimizing kerf loss. Our testing proved this blade outlasts the old style matrix bands by 20%. So now you can make short work of all your bundle and structural cutting with this quality band saw blade! 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. We will cut this 10 inch tubing on the Trajan 510 Band Saw in 1 minute thirty seconds. The Q 501 Band Saw Blade is the blade to consider when you need a blade that can “go the distance”, when cutting structural materials!
