The performance advantages of the duoflex® VTX bimetal band saw blade are best seen when cutting large to very large work pieces. Ideal for cutting corrosion and acid resistant steels as well as high-strength steels, tool steels and nickel-based alloys.
The integrated tooth height differences combined with different set widths reduce the cutting forces significantly, especially when cutting large work pieces. The fatigue strength is also increased by the strongly stretched gullets. Additionally, the specially developed tooth geometry and micro-wear resistant cutting edge provide excellent cost per cut performance without the use of carbide.
The coated version, nanoflex® VTX, enhances wear and heat resistance due to the high-quality TiAIN coating. Both versions of VTX are available in dimensions from 1” x .035” to 3-1/8” x .063” or 27 x 0.90 mm to 80 x 1.60 mm and in tooth pitches of 0.65/0.95, 0.75/1.25, 1.1/1.5, 1.4/2, 2/3 and 3/4 teeth per inch (tpi).
