CMT ITK Xtreme Orange Chrome Thin Kerf 12" Fine Finish Crosscut Blade, 72 Teeth, Alternate Top Bevel (ATB) 0.118” Kerf 253.072.12
This saw blade is part of CMT's newest line of ITK Xtreme saw blades. All blades are thin-kerf industrial quality blades and will deliver outstanding cut, minimal stock removal and the least possible stress on saws.
These blades have the following features:
LASER-CUT PREMIUM QUALITY STEEL PLATE BODY Made with 46-48 HRC precision select high-quality harmonic steel from Germany laser-cut to perfection provides tighter tolerances, longer life and more accurate cuts.
LASER-CUT HEAT EXPANSION SLOTS Engineered to allow blade expansion when heat build-up occurs from use, preventing blade warping.
TENSIONING A visible tensioning ring on our blade body is machine and operation tuned for maximum performance providing more stability during the cut. BODY
FLATNESS Blade body flatness is obtained via a proprietary straightening procedure which delivers substantially reduced tolerances
CHROME PLATED Chrome plating protects the blade from corrosion, rust, resin and residue build-up, dramatically extending the blade life and making maintenance fast and easy. Plating significantly reduces the motors absorbed power so the blade moves smoothly throughout the cutting operation. Blade plating surface hardness: 380-400 Vickers.
LASER-CUT SLOTS FILLED WITH SOUND-DAMPENING POLYURETHANE Damping polyurethane reduces vibration and noise by 25% compared to standard non-filled saw blades while improving cutting quality and extending blade life. Strategically positioned slots near the toothed crown provide superior vibration isolation and shock absorption. National Noise Emission Standard & Regulations compliant.
CMT XTREME BALANCING* Our patent pending Xtreme Balancing System delivers extremely accurate dynamic blade balancing, which is magnitudes above and beyond what is currently available in the marketplace. Each blade undergoes rigorous assessment and in the event micro-imbalance is detected, appropriate correction holes will be applied. This translates to precise cutting, longer blade life, reduced vibration, lower noise and less wear and tear on your machine components. * TRADEMARK & PAT. PEND.
INDUSTRIAL CHROME CARBIDE Specially formulated chrome carbide ensures cutting teeth stay sharp longer while reducing cutting edge abrasion, improving cut quality and prolonging life.
TRI-METAL BRAZING Our Silver-Copper-Silver Tri-Metal Tooth Brazing handles high stress and heavy impact associated with cutting hard wood and composite material.
PRECISION MIRROR FINISH SHARPENING Each tooth is precision ground on a multi-axis CNC machine which creates perfect edge angles that delivers extra-clean cutting performance and extended life. Featuring less than 0.25 μm Rmax in edge roughness.
RE-SHARPENING INFO Re-Sharpening details are laser engraved on the back of the blade for accurate, full proof, re-sharpening angle information.
