CMT Orange Tools introduced chrome-plated saw blades, long-depth hole saws and a kinetic dust extractor at the STAFDA Convention and Trade Show, held Nov. 12-14 in Austin, Texas.
The new saw blades feature special carbide that reduces tooth abrasion and a chrome-plated body that protects against corrosion and pitch, according to CMT’s national sales manager, Sal Taro.
“Our laser-cut, premium-quality plates are made of 46-48 rated HRC German steel for tighter tolerances, precise cutting and longer life. Our blades feature cut polyurethane-filled slots that reduce vibration and noise by 25 percent compared to standard blades. Tri-metal brazed teeth withstand the severe impact caused by cutting harder woods and composite material,” Taro explains.
The new hole saws feature large chip clearance slots and tungsten carbide-tipped cutting teeth.
The kinetic dust extractor is an accessory for increasing efficiency on a CNC machine. The unit is installed in place of a collet nut and helps create a much stronger vacuum, according to Taro.
“Machined from high quality aluminum and ceramic coated, the precisely balanced kinetic dust extractor aids in providing better air quality and extended tool life. It’s ideal for nesting and routing applications performed on your CNC machine. It offers good performance even at low rpm.”
The saw blades and hole saws start at $60 and $10, respectively. The kinetic dust extractor sells for $270.
