SiClone and BlockBuster blades enhanced with new features from Simonds Saw

Simonds Saw has recently reintroduced two major bi-metal band saw blade lines that combine new features with advanced manufacturing methods to substantially increase cutting rates in production metal sawing applications by up to 20%.

Siclone_webSimonds SiClone, ideal for cutting alloys such as Inconel, and Simonds BlockBuster
blades, which excel in high production sawing where cut accuracy and blade life are critical factors, now feature:

  • Exceptionally rugged backing steel, the straightest Simonds strip available.
  • A proprietary heat treating process for exceptionally long blade life in demanding production sawing.
  • Advanced new proprietary tooth tip metallurgy and treatment, laser-welded with highly consistent setting, for aggressive cutting and long life.
  • Proprietary finishing process for increased blade body strength that enhances production sawing performance.

“Our new improved SiClone and BlockBuster blades have been well received by steel service centers and other production sawing customers, who have realized extraordinary sawing productivity rates attributed to the enhanced product features and new process advancements,” said Mr. David Miles, Simonds Saw Vice President, Sales and Marketing.

The enhanced new SiClone and BlockBuster bi-metal blades are available from 2” – 3 1/8” widths. Simonds SiClone and BlockBuster blades are also guaranteed to outperform a user’s existing saw blades. Free safety glasses (no purchase necessary) are also offered to users who inquire on a Simonds’ SiClone or BlockBuster blade trial guarantee.
