...Carbide Technology from Bosch
Compared with standard blades, carbide technology offers significantly better value per cut.
If cutting through the toughest materials is an important part of your job, the new range of carbide technology blades from Bosch Professional can transform the way you work.
The eleven blades in the range are designed to fit sabre saws - and the carbide technology engineered into them delivers enhanced cutting strength, durability and longevity. This means by choosing to use these blades, you’ll be able to tackle cutting jobs which you couldn’t before!
The Bosch Professional carbide blades are also extremely cost-effective, because they have a cutting life that is up to 20 times longer than standard blades. So cut for cut, you’ll be paying less when you use them. The carbide technology also delivers a cutting action that is faster and less tiring for the tool operator.
One of the most popular blades in the UK is likely to be the Bosch Professional Endurance for Heavy Metal. As its name suggests, the blade is designed to tackle high strength steels. It will also slice through heavy gauge cast iron and even security locks. The blade’s extra wide body and extra thickness deliver both precision and stability while cutting. It’s available in a variety of lengths - 100mm, 150mm, 225mm and 300mm.
As brick is one of the most commonly used building materials in this country, the Bosch Professional Endurance for Brick blade is also likely to be in demand. This blade can make short work of solid or perforated brick, clinker brick and firebrick, as well as gypsum and grout.
The design of this blade sets it apart visually from others in this Bosch Professional range. The distinctive cutouts in the blade body reduce its weight, which means less vibration and fatigue for the user, even during continuous cutting. While the large carbide teeth on the blade deliver a robust and long cutting life - exactly what is needed for a hard construction material like brick.
Thanks to the cutting depth limiter, uncontrolled teeth engagement won’t be an issue either, giving safe and steady sawing whenever the blade is in use. There are three blade length options of 240mm, 305mm and 455mm.
Also available in three lengths, ranging from 150mm to 300mm, the Progressor for Wood and Metal is particularly suitable for cutting through wood that contains nails or screws, or wood combined with stainless steel sheet.
This blade’s progressive tooth geometry means it performs exceptional cutting through both thick and thin materials. The blade also has the flexibility and impact strength making it an ideal option for heavy demolition work. In total there are eleven different blades in the Bosch carbide technology range, including blades specifically designed to cut thick wood, aerated concrete, to tackle window demolition, to repair pallets and for use by emergency services during vehicle rescues.
For a future of cost-effective cutting, the answer seems clear. Make sure it’s a Bosch Professional carbide technology blade that you’re fitting into your sabre saw.
