Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation has a new generation of reciprocating saw blades specifically designed to handle metal, duct work and automotive components.
The blades, called ICE EDGE, are flexible to prevent shock, fatigue and shattering, according to the maker.
Featuring bi-metal construction with 8 percent cobalt, the blades are completely redesigned to optimize metal cutting with precision-ground teeth and a radiused back face to increase tooth strength, resulting in faster cuts and longer blade life.
The positive rake on the cutting edges removes chips aggressively, and deeper gullets help keep the cut clear and cool to ensure optimal heat resistance, according to Milwaukee.
A cryogenic heat treat process induces a permanent change in the microstructure of the high-speed steel cutting edge, and, because it penetrates to the full depth of the blades, the treatment improves the hardness, wear resistance and dimensional stability of each blade.
