Introducing High Productivity TENNAX™-PRO Bi-Metal Band Saw Blades for Structural Cutting

By: Charlie Starrett

TENNAX™-PRO Bi-Metal Band Saw Blades are designed to cut challenging tubes, pipes, profiles and structural shapes in both single pieces and bundles. Featuring lower noise and vibration as well as improved cutting performance, TENNAX™-PRO blades outlast and outperform competitive blades, making up to 25% more cuts per blade.

Starrett TENNAX™-PRO Band Saw Blades feature high-speed M-42 steel teeth with a new special tooth geometry/ profile that optimizes the tip profile for tube, pipe and other structural cuts, dissipating stress during cutting for greater resistance to wear and tooth breakage. In addition, TENNAX™-PRO band saw blades are designed with an exclusive tooth-setting process which minimizes pinching when cutting structural and bundled materials.

“We are excited to introduce TENNAX™-PRO, the next generation of Starrett Bi-Metal Band Saw Blades,” said Charlie Starrett, Product Manager, Saws and Hand Tools, The L.S. Starrett Co. “Specifically designed to cut structural materials, TENNAX™-PRO blades offer a higher level of productivity and extended blade life in difficult cutting processes, increasing your saw operation’s efficiency.”

TENNAX™-PRO blades are ideal for cutting a wide range of materials including carbon steel, carbon steel alloys, stainless steel, and non-ferrous materials. In addition to pipes, tubes, structural and bundled materials, TENNAX™-PRO applications include small solids. The blades are available in widths of 3/4", 1", 1 1/4", 1 1/2", 2", and 2 5/8", and can be used with manually operated, gravitational, and hydraulic machinery, making them a versatile and adaptable choice for a variety of applications.
