AMADA CUTTING TECHNOLOGIES INTRODUCES DUOS BI-METAL BANDSAW BLADE

LA MIRADA, CA, Dec. 17, 2001 -- Amada Cutting Technologies, Inc. (ACT) has unveiled the Duos bi-metal bandsaw blade. Toshi Ichimura, President, ACT, made the announcement.

"Duos features two specially designed combinations of high and low teeth," Ichimura said. "These twin set teeth help improve anti-chipping performance when cutting small workpieces and reduce blade change due to expanded cutting ranges."

Duos' blade characteristics change according to the material and form of the workpiece - it provides a wider, unprecedented cutting range. Ichimura added that Duos provides the same cutting performance when cutting solid round steel, for instance, as with a conventional 5/7 pitch blade.

"Duos also increases productivity - operators don't have to change blades as often and inventory control is simplified because with Duos, only one blade is needed for a wide variety of cutting applications," Ichimura said.

Key functions and features include:

  • Positive rake angle at the tip of the teeth. This ensures that the blade remains sharp.
  • Two-step relief angle increases gullet capacity. This reduces chipping caused by chip clogging.
  • No need for breaking in cutting. This prevents micro chipping.

Duos easily cuts tube, lightweight shaped steel, shaped steel and small diameter solid steel. For more information on Duos, call Amada at (800) 877-4729, or send e-mail to info@amadabandsaw.com.

Amada Cutting Technologies, Inc. (ACT), established in 1987, is located in La Mirada, Calif., about 25 miles south of Los Angeles. ACT is part of the Amada Group, founded in 1946. ACT sells and distributes bandsaw machines, bi-metal bandsaw blades and parts to manufacturing facilities, steel service centers, forges and foundries, machine shops and other metal-related industries throughout North America.
