Title: Industrial trials of low-expansivity sawblades

Author: Danielson, Jeanne D.; Worzala, Frank J.;

Date: 1992

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Low-expansivity alloys have the potential to reduce thermal instability of sawblades during the sawing operation. In preliminary industrial trials of sawblades made of low-expansivity alloy, sawing accuracy was improved 22 to 38 percent during normal sawing. When saws made of a low-expansivity alloy were operated with a large temperature gradient across the blade, sawing accuracy was comparable to that of steel saws operated with little temperature gradient.

Keywords: Sawblades, expansivity, thermal instability
