Amana Tool saw blades
In the manufacture of saw blades, Amana first ensures plates are perfectly straightened, balanced and tensioned. Then expansion slots are laser-cut to ensure stability and copper plugs added reduce noise and vibration. A H7 concentric bore is precisely machined to provide a tight fit on the arbor to eliminate circular run-out and vibration. Finally, large gullets are cut to ensure adequate chip clearance, and large, European-style microgram carbide tips are brazed in place.
Applied with an electrostatic bonding process, Amana's Electro-Blu coating helps the carbide teeth stay sharp longer to extend time between sharpenings, and therefore increase productivity and extend blade life. It does this by reducing build-up of heat and resins, both of which decrease blade performance and accelerate dulling.
