Options for the Amada band Saw VM2500:


High-performance Carbide Tipped Band Saw Blades
High-quality carbide tips and the dove tail tooth shape. AXCELA makes incredible cutting speed for hard to cut material.

BCTBR Band Saw Blade

Multi Faceted Carbide Tipped Blade

Designed exclusively for heat-resistant alloys, nickel-based alloys, titanium alloys, and special cast tensile steels, all with high tensile strength of over 142,000 psi. It features ultra-hard, diamond sharp carbide tipped teeth that resist low thermal conductivity and abrasion that can quickly break down conventional bi-metal type bands.

MAGNUM HI-LO Band Saw Blade

Patented Varying Tooth Height and Set M-71 Bi-metal Blade
High-quality carbide tips and the dove tail tooth shape. AXCELA makes incredible cutting speed for hard to cut material.

Hi-Lo Band Saw Blade

Varying Tooth Height Design, M-42 Welded Edge

The Hi-Lo blade features a high and low teeth height design and a 15-degree rake angle. The blade is ideal for cutting hard steels.


Patented Gullet Design
Designed to reduced heat generated at increased chip load. With reduced tooth stripping and breaking this equates to the lowest possible cost per square inch of metal cutting.

SGLB Band Saw Blade

M-42 Bi-metal Blade

The SGLB was designed to cover a broad range of cutting applications and to provide maximum efficiency in sawing wear-resistant tool steels. The blade's tough M-42 cobalt edge resists heat and abrasion, while the varied pitch tooth form expands the ranges of sizes and shapes that can be sawed successfully without changing blades.

COBALT8 Band Saw Blade

Amada Modified M42 High-Speed Steel Bi-Metal Blade
General-purpose blade ideal for cutting mild steel and structural steel. "Chip Curler" tooth shape and unique set pattern result in longer blade life.


Thinner Blade of SGLB and Magnum Hi-Lo

Thinner more than 10% from regular SGLB or Magnum Hi-Lo. Specialized Blade for PCSAW330

PROTECTOR EX M42 Band Saw Blade

Exclusive use for structural steel with M-42 Edge. Which has both strength against tooth chipping and high wear resistance. PROTECTOR EX added to the back face of the tooth tip prevents excessive cutting.

PROTECTOR Band Saw Blade

Exclusive Use for Structual Steel with M-30 Matrix Bi-metal Blade

Exclusive use for structural steel. Protector provides long blade life and prevents tooth breakage, eliminating excessive tooth stripping. It can withstand the shock of interrupted cuts, allowing for heavier penetration for faster cutting rates. Protector uses a broaching style set pattern designed to eliminate pinching, which prevents the blade from binding the cut.

MGLB Band Saw Blade

General Purpose Matrix Bi-metal Blade

The MGLB is best suited for cutting structural shapes, tubing and stacks of mild steel pieces. The MGLB allows band saw machines to cut a wide range of material sizes and shapes without requiring a change of blades. Its tough high-speed steel teeth resist chipping, stripping and abrasion. It can also tolerate the occasional improper speeds and feeds that are often used by inexperienced saw operators.
