First, I want to say Hello to everyone in this group. I have a question concerning the bandsawmachine that i would like to buy. My firm is manufacturing various things, mostly working with INOX tubes, profiles and bars. We are seeking some horisontal band saw blade machine for cutting1"x1.5 mm and 1,5" x 1.5 mm INOX tubes. Having in mind low thickness of tube walls, i have to find blade that would work well, without theets falling of or wear to much.
I suppose that 24 tooth per inch would be enough for vibration free cutting, but i can't find supplyer for theese. We have tried to cut one tube with 14 tooth/inch and (as i said to a seller that would happen) broke almost all of teeth in first few seconds. Simply not enough teeth on blade.
Machine is 90% will be knuth B-180. Does anyone knows some good band saw manufacturing company that is working in eastern Europe (Serbia)? Thanks for your time and support.
