While CNC equipment is powerful, that power is a waste if you can’t control it. Whether you are making micro cuts for medical applications or machining gears for aeronautics, that power doesn’t do you any good if you don’t have precision. Precision cuts require a blade held rigidly by a precision saw arbor.

There was a time when high speed steel was used for precision saw blades. There was also a time they thought bleeding a person would get rid of illness.  Thank goodness they discovered antibiotics. And thank goodness that carbide has replaced high speed steel. High speed steel still works great for drilling,  but carbide is better for cutting with speed. Depending on the application, you can run carbide 4 to 12 times faster than even cobalt-enhanced high speed steel.

The addition of cobalt to high speed steel results in a saw blade that’s strong and resists wear.

Carbide or cobalt give burr-free cuts. That first pass cut saves the time on further machining. Pair ultra high speed saw blades with CNC control for high speed ultra high precision cuts.

A Precision Saw Demands a Precision Saw Arbor

How do you define precision? According to the Mirriam-Webster dictionary, precision is the quality or state of being precise, exact, or accurate. A precision saw blade is used for controlled cuts.  The saw arbor must be as precise as the blade.  Sierra American Multi-systems understands the need for ultra precision. In addition to slitting saw arbors and general reach arbors, we manufacture a line of ultra precision saw arbors for those precise cutting situations. The precision saw arbor has a weldon shank and:

  • Deep, low profile cap for the closest cutter to work area you will ever find
  • Extra support that reduces cutter slippage
  • a Vibra-Core design to reduce cutter vibration
  • Extra long reach
