Hilti Diamond Blades
The Best Diamond Blades
Blades Direct is known for it's industrial grade high strength diamond blades, which are produced and manufactured by us, unlike many other competitors such as Hilti Diamond Blades. Common circular saw blades have a steel disc with carbide-tipped cutting teeth around the perimeter. Commonly used for sawing wood, some carbide blades are also capable of slicing through thin metal. The price and lifespan of carbide-tipped blades are highly sensitive to the material they are used to cut and the number of teeth on the blade. Though not as common as their carbide-tipped counterparts, circular saw blades with a steel tip were once the standard. Compared to carbide-tipped blades, steel-tipped ones are both more affordable and simpler to maintain. However, they aren't as long-lasting and only maintain their sharpness about a tenth as long as carbide.
Diamond blades can easily slice through masonry materials like brick, tile, and concrete. Blades with a diamond coating are typically completely round and devoid of cutting teeth. Depending on the blade quality and the material being cut, their run time can range from 12 minutes to 120 hours. Synthetic diamond materials are mixed with other materials like iron or steel to create a diamond blade with exceptional diamond segments along the cutting edge.
Hard materials are typically cut with diamond blades. Depending on the requirements of the manufacturing process and the intended use of the resulting part, cutting is a crucial technical process in the production of many different types of goods. When it comes to durability and longevity, diamond blades are unrivaled. A longer lifespan for the blade is to be expected when the appropriate blade is selected for the material being cut. This is because of the nature of these blades and the variety of options available to suit the various materials being cut. Since diamond blades are so efficient, they help get the job done faster and quiet down the cutting area. The lack of complexity in their cutting mechanism means that these blades generate less heat than their counterparts when in use. Very little heat is produced when a suitable blade and cooling system are used. The combination of these features makes for a smooth and quick slicing experience.
As the manufacturing process allows for precise regulation of important characteristics like crystal shape, size, and strength, manufactured diamond is favored over natural diamond. Power requirements rise with the segment's diamond content because of the segment's variable diamond content. The more diamond there is in the segment, the more power is required to make the blade cut. Simply put, this means that high horsepower saw blades will feature more diamond. Each diamond's resistance to heat and ability to keep its point depend on its quality. Stronger diamonds maintain their sharpness for longer in hotter conditions.
Over time diamond blades will dull. The diamond edge of your blade may be dull if it is cutting more slowly than usual or binding while you are cutting. If your blade is completely smooth, that means the diamonds have worn away, or if your blade has glazed over and the metal on the blade has melted over the diamonds, then your blade is dull. Unlike the circular saw blades used in handheld tools, which can be easily sharpened and deglazed with a dressing stone, diamond-edged blades used in table-mounted miter or tile saws are typically discarded after only a few uses.
