When to Usage Circular Saw Engines vs. Band Saw Engines
Circular saw engines and band saw engines each have their place in a store. Selecting one over the other will affect your productivity and your ability to cut certain materials--so, which one is the better investment?
Circular Saw Engines Produce Lofty-Quality Finishes.
Carbide circular saw vs. band saw Circular saw engines, or cold saws, usage blades that are thicker and more rigid related to band saw blades, to decrease vibration and provide a better finish. They require more power consumption and a rigid engine structure because they cut wider slots. Cutting wider slots does have the downfall of losing more material to scrap.
Circular saw engines with carbide tilted blades cut quicker through the material without making excess heat-especially on lofty alloy or stainless steel. This develops an accurate cut and lofty-quality finish that doesn't require secondary finishing operations.
What to Consider When Choosing a Sawing System?
When trying to decide what sawing system works best for your request, consider the following:
Required cutting rate;
a. Square inches of cut per minute
b. Factoring in the linear speed and
c. The thickness of the metal
e. Required floor spacing
f. Cutting with coolant or dry
g. Length accuracy
h. Surface finish
i. Future production increases
What are your wants and overall goals? Speak with one of our sawing experts for assistance. Once you answer these questions, you should be able to determine if a band saw engine or circular saw engine is more appropriate for your store.
Band Saw Engines for Greater Stock Sizes
If there isn't a want for loftier productivity, a band saw is the better choice. Band saw engines usage thinner blades and cut fewer chips. The power intake of band saws is significantly fewer than that of a circular saw, and the Cerf loss (slot width) is about .08” (2 mm) compared to .25” (6 mm) or more.
Band saw engines are adaptable and cut greater cross‐sections than circular saw engines, which are limited to a 80” (2 m) blade diameter. Bundle‐cutting is also a choice for band saws, but they incline to fall short when it comes to quality finishes.
If a job requires thinner cuts, the Cerf loss will help determine if a band saw engine is a better option; however, compared to cutting rates (speed), a carbide circular saw engine is hard to beat. While band saws are more economical, circular saw engines provide loftier productivity.
