    EAST LONGMEADOW, LENOX®, a name synonymous with technologically advanced band saw blades and sawing fluids, announces the introduction of the LENOX Classic Pro Band Saw Blade. The new blade is designed for durability when cutting a wide range of metals from low carbon steels to higher strength alloys.

    The LENOX Classic Pro bi-metal band saw blade features a proprietary backing steel preparation to increase fatigue life and minimize band breakage. The M42 high speed steel edge provides superior heat and wear resistance when cutting a variety of metals. The advanced design enables production cutting of solid and structural steels and delivers consistent performance. Classic Pro benefits from a unique tooth geometry and set pattern that improves tooth penetration on saws with limited feed force and minimizes noise and vibration.

    "Many of our customers require a multi-purpose blade that has the ability to cut an array of metals. They may need to cut 2 inch rounds of carbon steel in the morning and then shift to cutting 3 inch squares of an alloy steel in the afternoon. When the sawing operation requires the flexibility to cut different sizes, shapes, and types of metal, the Classic Pro band saw blade provides performance and value," stated Matthew Lacroix, Sr. Product Manager, Band Saw Division, LENOX. "Classic Pro is versatile enough to cut a range of metals, while providing consistent performance cut after cut. Customers that need general purpose blades to perform at a high level will appreciate the lower cost per cut the blade provides. "

    Ideal for cutting carbon steels, alloys, stainless, and aluminum solids and structurals, the LENOX Classic Pro Band Saw Blade is available at distributors nationwide.
