Rolled, carbon steel banding from a Coventry rolling mill has teeth either milled or diamond ground, in a purpose built factory in Featherstone, Yorkshire.
Next the banding is subjected to a hardening and annealing process to give durability to the teeth.
The banding is then checked for straightness on the back, using a special machine to correct any deviation that is out of tolerance. It is then packed and despatched in 100m reels to form the raw material for the bandsaw blades.
Finally at our very own production facility here in Axminster the material is sized, welded, finished and packed and ready to be despatched to our customers.
