Large diameter solid steel circular saw blades are mainly used for cross-cutting logs in the pulp, paper and plywood industry. These blades are manufactured from hot-rolled special steel. Diameters typically vary from 1300 mm up to 2500 mm and thicknesses correspondingly from 4.5 mm up to 7 mm, depending on cutting conditions. Tooth forms are tailored for each customer depending on the wood species to be cut (hardwood, softwood, frozen wood), wood dry content, log diameters, etc. The recommended cutting speed is in the range 55 to 60 m/s. Blades are manufactured to be either uniform in thickness or conical in shape. The use of conical blades minimizes wood losses in cross-cutting. One of the key points in blade manufacture is the controlled heat treatment process. Due to the importance of this manufacturing phase, TTT performs the heat treatment of blades itself in all but certain special cases. Thanks to this procedure, TTT blades have optimum hardness combined with maximum straightness for a longer lifetime.

Benets of TTT knives:

Blades are tailor-made according to customers specic requirements Longer lifetime ensured by expertise in the manufacturing process Prior to customer deliveries all blades are nishedtensioned and test-rotated at recommended cutting speed All our blades are delivered to the customer readysharpened with settings for immediate use
Useful tips for re-sharpening and maintenance:

In addition to conventional solid steel circular saw blades, TTT manufactures Springtooth saw blades with inserted teeth.

Use the correct grinding stone, recommended type e.g. 964 A54/01 L8 V 656 Ensure the grinding stone edge is correctly rounded to avoid sharp edges in tooth bottoms and the risk of crack failure in blades Make sure blades are straightened and re-tensioned after each re-sharpening Subject your sharpening machine to regular maintenance
