Bi-metal saw blades introduced

Engineered to cut structural steel, tubing and bundles, large metal beams and heavy walled tubes, Lenox has introduced the HRX bi-metal bandsaw blade, an entirely new product in the company’s portfolio.

Engineered in response to increasing customer demand for cutting large structural components for commercial construction and infrastructure projects, the new Lenox HRX features a long-life blade with Lenox Power Blast technology, which is said to strengthen the blade to minimise breaks, with durable teeth for cutting large structural beams.
A further advantage is the capability to perform straight cuts through wide cross-sections. The Lenox HRX is designed to improve chip flow and reduce blade deflection for cutting efficiency, while the blade’s tooth geometry is designed to minimise edge chipping and crooked cuts. Finally, a wide kerf limits pinching in larger beams; the HRX utilises alternating set teeth, which widen the cutting channel to limit blade pinching.
“Our focus on blade durability and performance has allowed us to enhance our product offering in the bi-metal bandsaw blade market – providing greater cutting performance for our customers in these very demanding applications,” says Patrick Cowhard, senior product manager for Lenox.
The new HRX leverages the success of the Lenox Rx+ bi-metal bandsaw blade, and is designed to deliver clean cuts, efficiency and durability in large structural cutting applications. High-speed steel tooth tips combine with flexible alloy steel backing material for cost-effective performance. The HRX comes in widths from 34 to 67 mm, with extra-heavy set options available to avoid blade pinching on large material.
