Why choose carbide saw blades for aluminum

Published On: August 14, 2020

Aluminum is a common martial in our life, and it is different from iron and steel. Aluminum is softer than other martial such as steel, so the blades for processing it are also different from other carbide blades.

Carbide circular saw blades are a common tool in modern industrial fields. However, some people are not yet clear on why carbide blades have so many types. And why there are also carbide circular saw blades for aluminum alloy only. Operators should have a clear cognition of the difference between ordinary carbide saw blades and carbide blades for aluminum.


First of all, because the hardness of aluminum is lower than other materials, if the processing tools of other materials are used to process aluminum, it will not only cause damage to the aluminum material but also damage the carbide blades. Besides, carbide saw blades for aluminum cannot use to process other metal marital. Secondly, the plasticity and melting point of aluminum is low. When processing aluminum with conventional carbide blades, it is easy to stick to the blades and poor chip removal, which will also affect the processing quality. Carbide circular saw blades for aluminum have solved the problem appropriately. Lastly, because of the special characteristic of aluminum, if the aluminum alloy tool is used in the end, the chip removal problem will often aggravate aluminum alloy used.


Therefore, when selecting tungsten steel carbide saw blades for aluminum, the number of cutting edges is generally 3, and the material is generally YG cemented carbide, which can reduce the chemical affinity between the tool and aluminum alloy. Generally, CNC tool brands have special milling cutter series for aluminum alloy processing, such as the 3P series of element brands and the Al series of fraisa of Switzerland.


At present, many companies abroad have incorporated the products of Konetool. All around the world, at least 9 countries have cooperated with Konetool. Konetool has a high reputation for carbide products. Some more successful models have also been explored in the practice of financial media construction in various places.
