Industrial blades are used in a variety of applications to shape, cut, and slice material. With innovations in materials and blade technologies, it can be tough to know how to choose the right blade for any given application. This article will explain everything you need to know about blades, including the different types of blades, their applications, and factors to consider when selecting a blade.



What are Common Types of Blades?


Depending on the material, application, and condition, different types of blades are commonly used. These blades are used to cut and shape the material in a variety of industries.


1. Metal Cutting Blade

Metal cutting blades are commonly used in industries such as automotive, foundry, plastics, and electronics. They are used in different shapes depending on the application. These blades have a very sharp edge and they cut through the material with ease.

2. Paper Cutting Blade

Paper cutting blades are also commonly used in a variety of industries, but they are mostly used in paper processing and packaging uses, such as paper bags, corrugating rolls, toilet paper dispensers, and napkins.

4. Plastic Cutting Blade

Plastic cutting blades are used for a variety of applications, including drilling and fastening various plastics in the automotive and construction industries. They can be made from high-speed steel or tungsten carbide material depending on the application.

5. Irregular Shaped Blade

Irregular-shaped blades are used for areas that need something special and different from the regular blade shape. Examples of irregular-shaped blades include pipes and tubes; these blades are made to fit into existing equipment with square or round cutters or they are sometimes made on special mandrels that can be shaped to fit the job.

6. Recycling Blade

Recycling blades are commonly used for recycling and composting applications, such as steel scraps and waste from recycled materials. These blades have a less sharp edge than regular cutting blades but provide more flexibility in cutting material than a classic wood blade.

What are the Factors to Consider when Selecting a Blade?


Many factors should be considered when choosing a blade for your application, they include:


1. Blade Size

Blade size is very important when choosing a blade because it directly affects how much material can be cut. Blade size ranges from 40mm up to 300mm; bigger blades mean bigger materials can be cut.


2. Durability

Durability is important when using blades in your application. The best blades are made from high-speed steel or tungsten carbide material. These materials are more resistant to wear, especially if they are made from a special grade of high-speed steel that makes them wear-resistant.

Other materials such as aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium can also be used; however, these kinds of blades may have different characteristics compared to the other blade types.


3. Blade Face

Different blade faces offer different application options because they can be used in a range of applications that require different types of cuts.

Silicone bonded or ground blades have an excellent finish and are commonly used with wood, plastics, and glass material. They provide a smooth surface that can be easily maintained. Regular coating of lubricant is also required for optimum performance.


4. Blade Type

Blade types include straight, tapered, conical, and pressed cutting blades. However, the different types cannot be mixed as they may cause damage to the blade. Therefore, it is best to choose a blade type depending on the application you want to use.


5. Blade Shape

Blade shapes include standard, round, and shaped cutting blades. They are mostly used for different types of materials depending on the application.

However, blades that are not available in the type you need can be ordered from a specialized maker, or from overseas from a distributor based in the country that made the blade you want.


6. Blade Sharpness

Sharpness is very important in differentiating between blades. There are different types of sharpness available which include serrated, high-speed steel, tungsten carbide, and laser-cut blades.

Plastic and metal cutting blades require a high-speed steel blade and usually have a serrated edge to make it easier for the blade to cut the material more thinly. Metal cutting blades (except for aluminum and stainless) are often used in maximum hardness conditions; they have a very sharp but also a fragile edge that will easily snap or chip if not maintained properly.



Conclusion


Blades have been around for decades, yet they remain in common use today. They provide many benefits to different industries and are used in a variety of applications to help shape, cut, and slice material.

Choosing the right blade for your application can be tricky, but by considering the different factors discussed above, you can select the right blade for your needs. Today, blades are constantly being improved and developed to meet the needs of customers in a variety of industries.
