The standard for all structural and non-alloyed tool steel.

Cost effective for thin walled tubes and profiles in (stainless) steel.

Reduced cutting time for mild steel tubes and solids.

Low friction for high speed cutting of harder materials.

Ideal for cutting steel and stainless steel tubes.

High thermal insulation for high cutting speeds (incl. flying cut-off)

Stable solution for thin walled tube cutting.

The solution for high speed and high volume steel tube cutting.

High performance cutting of steel tubes.

Our HSS circular saw blades are designed for cutting pipes, sections, solid ferrous metals and, to a less significant extent, non-ferrous metals. We can supply HSS saw blades as bright finished (with no surface treatment), steam treated (Vapo) or with a flash chrome coating.

Alternatively, a range of PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) cutting blades can also be supplied with the following coatings:

  • TiN – Titanium Nitride; a good all round coating which allows saw cutting at much higher speeds than with HSS Steam Treated saw blades and are recommended for cutting steel tubes and profiles.
  • TiALN – Titanium Aluminium Nitride; provides better protection against higher temperatures than a TiN coating. Recommended for cutting applications on which fast cutting speeds or very hard materials cause higher temperatures.
  • TiCN – Titanium Carbon Nitride; has a very low friction coefficient, extending the cutting blade life in steel tube cutting applications. Suitable for cutting all steel types including stainless steel.

Standard HSS saw blades are supplied in high speed steel grade M2 = DIN 1.3343 and are also available in cobalt-alloyed steel grades such as M35 = DIN 1.3243 and S390 Powder Metallurgy Steel. Diameters vary from 150 to 640 mm in various tooth forms.
