New saw blade technology presented by MFL

Advanced service life and less investment cost is what makes customers all over the globe interested in the new MFL saw blade technology. A saw blade with exchangeable carbide tips is the latest advance made by Maschinenfabrik Liezen und Gießerei GmbH (MFL), a well known supplier of sawing and milling equipment.

The clamped carbide tips are the special feature of this novel saw blade. Common saw blades have the carbides brazed at the tooth. The carbides of the MFL saw blades are clamped into the gap between the main body and the tooth. By an easy exchange of the clamped carbide tips, invests in expensive grinding centres are needles. Also a less number of basic equipment is required because long transport times for regrinding of saw blades disappear. Successful trials at the MFL workshop in Liezen have already been finalised. A durability test is going to be started soon. The saw blade has been developed by MFL in cooperation with a well known Austrian manufacturer of carbide tips and has already been patented.

Another recent invention from MFL is the ring splitting machine used primarily in ring mills to separate multiple rings. The machine is equipped with a carbide tipped saw blade and cuts the ring in an interpolated process from the inside out. Production and quality can be improved considerably.

MFL’s product range includes single and layer sawing machines for cutting tubes, billets, rails and profiles. Each of these machines is designed to use carbide tipped saw blades, which guarantee high performance, low costs and a long service life.

The company’s plate and stripe edge milling machines are mainly used for the edge preparation of longitudinal welded pipes, in the ship building and the spiral pipe industry.

MFL is an experienced and well known manufacturer of sawing and milling equipment with more than ten years of experience. MFL constantly refines and develops machines to increase service life and keep downtimes as low as possible. The company knows that technical progress and development are important mainstays and quality factors in the production of machining systems.
