Tooth pitch

Constant tooth pitch

Saegeband Zahnteilung konstant

Variable tooth pitch

Saegeband Zahnteilung variabel

Tooth pitch (tpi) describes the number of teeth per inch (1 inch = 25,4 mm). With band saw blades, a distinction is drawn between constant and variable tooth pitch.

Tooth set

During the setting process the teeth will be bowed side ways to free the blade from chip load. Special sets and special set widths are available upon request. Depending on the application, we offer the following set patterns:

Raker set
R – L – S – R – L – S

Saegeband Zahnteilung konstant

Constant set
R – L – R – L – S

Saegeband konstante Schraenkung

Variable set
R+ – L+ – R – L – S

Saegeband variable Schraenkung

Wave set
