Saw blades and tooth forms

For the STANDARD, STANDARD S, EVOLUTION, CONTROL and STRIEBIG 4D models, the diameter of the standard saw blade is 303 mm. For the COMPACT model the saw blade diameter is 250 mm. The tooth width of the saw blades is 3.2 mm and the main saw blade is 2.2 mm thick. The maximum permitted saw blade width is 3.5 mm. The saw-shaft has a diameter of 30 mm and the saw blades must have secondary holes Ø 9 mm with a pitch circle of 60 mm (Compact Ø 7 mm with a pitch circle of 42 mm) so that they can be inserted into the machine.

The information below serves as a rough guide for the use of HM circular saw blades. They show a selection of the most commonly used tooth forms for circular saw blades and which materials can be best cut by them. Please note that the names of these tooth forms can differ from manufacturer to manufacturer. The correct cutting edge shapes for the individual application should be determined through recommendations of the tool manufacturers or through cutting tests.

Hollow roof flat tooth with bevel: (STRIEBIG standard saw blade)

Coated chipboard, uncoated chipboard, MDF, OSB, blockboard, plywood or multiplex boards and other general wood-based boards.

Trapezoidal flat tooth:

Longitudinal cuts of solid wood in hardwood, duroplastics (PUR, PES, epoxy resins, MF), thermoplastics (PA, PE, PP, PMMA, PS), fibre-reinforced plastics (GRP), aluminium, gypsum boards, cement-bonded boards, Alucobond and plasterboard.

Alternating tooth:

Solid wood cross-sections in hardwood, softwood and exotic wood, uncoated chipboard, laminated wood panels, veneer, thermoplastics (PA, PE, PP, PMMA, PS), acrylic glass and mineral wool panels.

Diamond saw blades (DIA saw blades) can be used with all model types. You can also use a diamond saw blades for the scoring saw unit.

Depending on the material, the service life of diamond saw blades can be 15 to 25 times longer than with conventional HM saw blades. The higher purchase costs can be recouped through lower retooling costs and fewer sharpening cycles. Another advantage is the wide range of materials that can be processed with high cutting quality. These include decorative chipboard panels as well as MDF, blockboard, plywood or multiplex boards coated with primer film. Longitudinal and cross sections are possible in solid wood, aluminium composite panels, plastics such as Plexiglas, abrasive materials such as gypsum, solid core and mineral materials (Corian®, HiMacs, Staron), Eternit® (asbestos free), rock wool, glass fibre reinforced resin panels and fibre reinforced plastics.
