The slitting saw is a flat (with or without disc) circular saw with a hole in the middle and teeth on the outer diameter. Slitting saws are used in conjunction with mandrels for machining parts that require the removal of large amounts of material in a small diameter range, such as grooving or cutting applications.
Other names for slitting saws include (but are not limited to) slitting knives, slotting knives, jewelers saws, and slitting knives. Jeweler saws and slitting knives are special types of slitting saws. The jeweler's saw has a high number of teeth, so it can cut tiny, precise features, while the slitter knife is a slitter saw with no teeth at all. In order to make the cutting as accurate as possible in the machining of mechanical parts, the number of teeth on the jeweler's saw is usually much higher than that of other types of saws.
These saw blades are designed to cut ferrous and non-ferrous materials, and with their unique shape and geometry, they can cut the fine groove features on the part more effectively than any other processing tool.
1. Separate the two pieces of material: If the application requires that a material such as a rod be cut in half, the slitting saw will cut it well while improving efficiency.
2. Undercutting application: If installed correctly, the saw can be used for undercutting application, so there is no need to completely reinstall the workpiece.
3. Insert material: It can create fine grooves with obvious cutting depth, and the slitting saw can be just right!
Slitting saws can be beneficial for a variety of machining methods, and it is important to understand their geometry and purpose before attempting to use them in a machine tool shop. They are great tools in the store to help you get your work done as quickly and efficiently as possible.
