What is Solid Carbide Slitting Saws?

The solid carbide slitting saw is made of solid carbide material (also called as “cemented carbide” or “tungsten steel”) as a whole, and is mainly used for producing precision slots and cuts with CNC milling machines.

Why Carbide?

Comparing to HSS material, Carbide metal saw blades provide longer tool life and decreased cycle times, also has good performance of high hardness and long wear life, so solid carbide slitting saws can achieve high-speed milling and high processing efficiency. Milled grooves are dimensionally accurate and have a good finish, resulting in high product quality, it can be widely used for milling and grooving of wood, copper, aluminum and other difficult-to-machine materials such as ordinary steel, hardened steel, bearing steel stainless steel, titanium alloy etc.


What material can be cut by slitting saw blades?

  • Aluminum and aluminum alloys

  • Copper, brass and bronze alloys

  • Other Non-ferrous metal alloys

  • Wood/Plastics non-metal

  • Ordinary steel

  • Hardened steel

  • Cast iron

  • Titanium alloy

coarse and fine pitch with Inch and in metric sizes, different thickness can be offered

User Case and Application of Carbide Slitting Saws

1. Comparation of HSS and Carbide Slitting Saws

The case shows that when slitting abrasive materials such as cast iron or aluminium-silicon alloys (Si > 10%), the tool life of carbide slitting saws can reach 8-10 times that of an equivalent slitting saw blade in HSS, also the machining cycle time will be reduced to 1/4 of that of HSS sliting saws.

2. User Case of  Carbide Slitting Saw

The case shows that ToolingBox TC20 series carbide slitting saws can reach very good tool life(approx. 200 slots) with a reasonable cutting speed(80m/min) when slitting the alloy steel axis part. 

Selection Steps of  Carbide Slitting Saws


Select the Outer Diameter

Generally, the outer diameter is selected by the depth of cut(Table 1).


Determine the Thickness

Determine the thickness of the saw blade according to the cutting needs (Table 2)


Select the Inner Diameter

Find the corresponding inner hole according to the outer diameter (Table 2)


Coarse or Fine Pitch?

If you’re working with non-ferrous metals, ToolingBox suggests a Coarse Pitch, and finer pitch saws for ferrous metals.
