Aerospace Alloys

When it comes to sawing aerospace alloys with a band saw it can prove to be the most challenging of all materials, due to their high nickel content.

An example of the most common Aerospace alloys are;

  • Inconel
  • Titanium
  • Duplex
  • Stainless Steel
  • Aluminium
  • Waspalloy
  • Hastalloy
  • Other Nickel based products

 

For most applications, we would recommend using a Roentgen carbide tipped band saw blade.

For some of these applications our M51 Bi-metal band saw blades with the correct feed and speed rates can handle these materials, but if the incorrect speeds are implemented this can have a detrimental impact on the life of the blade.

We would recommend the following blades for cutting nickel based alloys;
