In respect of blades, Starrett manufactures saw blades, among other products. These range from large band saw blades to conventional DIY hacksaw blades. All are produced from the finest materials, and in compliance with the strictest European and other international safety and quality standards.
With ongoing research and development, Starrett has also developed a comprehensive range of bi-metal band saw blades that - without the expense of carbide-tips - are the best solution for cutting various ferrous and non-ferrous materials.
Designed for heavy-duty cutting applications, the Primalloy saw provides greater operating life and better heat and wear resistance through alloying cobalt and vanadium, while the Intenss (Powerband M42) has a high-speed steel cutting edge welded to a fatigue-resistant alloy steel backing. The blades are resistant to heat, abrasion, and shock, for faster cutting speeds of a wide range of materials. Furthermore, the bi-metal band saw blades are cost-effective, and suit all cutting requirements for any model of machine.
Leveraging their strong, decades-long relationship with First Cut, Starrett has developed a solid market presence in South Africa.
Starrett’s sound reputation and strong representation by South Africa’s foremost leader in cutting technology, First Cut, will ensure that together, they continue to cut a swathe through any opposition and remain at the edge of technological advancement within the sector.
