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;
- Stainless Steel
- 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;
