New-Form Tools, Canada, has developed speciality blades and cutting systems for high tensile and high strength materials including stainless steels and exotic metal tubing. The titanium coated shear blades are impact resistant and wear resistant.

Those that have struggled with sawing and shearing can now depend on consistent saw quality cuts in varying size and wall thickness. Unpredictability in blade life can be avoided as these products guarantee long life and high quality cuts far beyond that of regular sawing and shearing of high strength steel tubing.

Examples from users of these shear blades show that 5,000-11,000 cuts are possible in difficult high strength tubing with 61/2" diameter and 0.179 wall thickness. Historically, these tube cutting figures were unpredictable even with 100-800 cuts. These results have been verified at one customer in the mid-USA, saving in excess of US$1mn on their tube mill from the actual scrap steel tube produced.

The cost of new blades and sharpening has therefore been reduced by more than 400 per cent. Total cost reductions in one tube mill line approached US$1.4mn per annum. The customer also drastically improved its efficiencies so that ample run time is available for additional products. In addition to these cost saving advances, New-Form Tools has developed a patented quick change blade/jaw system that dramatically reduce downtime in tube shearing. The New-Form quick change tool systems can now be adapted to fit most existing tube-shear cutting machines and can transform production lines into higher profit work centres. Tool package changes that would total up to 60 minutes have been reduced to as little as 60 seconds.
