Deep-cut band saw
makes 43⁄4-in. cuts in metals
The Bosch GCB10-5 deep-cut band saw
delivers low-spark, clean cuts in materials such as rebar, conduit, copper pipe,
steel track, and threaded rod. The 10-
amp saw slices tough materials up to 43⁄
The cuts require almost no rework for
burrs or tempering colors. The saw accommodates most common applications
in a single pass. A saw hook simplifies
on-the-job storage, and an LED light illuminates the cut line. Variable-speed
settings from 100 to 380 SFPM allow the
user to match the cut rate to the material.
Saw blades customized
to application requirements
Controx Inc. has introduced precision
saw blades designed for use with Hydro-mat machines. Available in 6. 5 and 9. 8
in. dia., these cobalt steel (HSS-Co) saw
blades feature an axial runout of 0.004
in. to help ensure a straight cut and minimize the breakage rate.
The firm stocks untoothed saw blade
blanks which are customized for particular applications. The number of teeth and
the toothform help minimize burrs and
improve service life. Available fine-, me-dium-, and coarse-pitch toothing styles
include angular, angular with alternating
chamfers, rounded, rounded with alternating chamfers, and triplechip. PVD
and CVD coatings are available.

Custom-welded profiles offered
OMCO produces custom-welded profiles and standard tube shapes requiring
slots, holes, and other modifications.
The company’s production line incorporates a 330-ton prepunch press; a 3.5-in.
rafted roll forming mill; and a 150-k W,
high-frequency welder with integrated
eddy current monitor to handle material
thicknesses up to 0.250 in.
This new capability is suitable for
manufacturers that incorporate large
quantities of custom profile shapes into
their products. It is an alternative for
companies that use significant volumes
of standard welded tube shapes that
need punching, slotting, notching, and
other inline operations.
Back-blow air nozzle cleans tiny IDs
Exair’s new model 1004SS, an M4 NPT
back-blow air nozzle, has been designed
to deliver small, effective airflow for
blowing debris and liquids from small
pipe IDs, channel, bores, holes, and internal threads.
The 360-degree airflow clears out
coolant, chips, and light oils. The nozzle
prevents blowing chips farther into a
part, tube, or pipe and eliminates safety
hazards created by blowing debris out
the far end of a pipe or tube.

Saw blade line
extended for tube cutting
Kinkelder has extended its line of TCT
Champion saw blades for tube cutting.
The Champion TL saw blade features
a new carbide grade, PVD coating, body
design, and tooth geometry. It cuts tubes
with tensile up to 850 N/mm2 on high-output, stationary sawing machines. The
blade is available in diameters from 8. 8
to 22 in. with a pitch of 0.35, 0.43, or
