Saw blades and slitting saws!

Blog that seeks to provide all the information on saw blades and slitting saws.


Powder metallurgy makes ASP ® steels the new generation of high-speed steels. The ASP ® steel used by Rix ® is highly alloyed and allows for tooth tip hardness up to 70 HRC. These new steels show characteristics that are not to be found in traditional high speed steels.

  • This gives them greater hardness due to a higher number of alloy components.
  • The use of smaller carbide particles makes for higher elasticity.
  • ASP ® steel contains a higher proportion of vanadium carbides and is highly resistant to high cutting pressure and all forms of wear.

The photos to the right show the size and distribution of the carbide particles.The arrangement and small size of the carbides give ASP ® steels lower impact sensitivity compared to conventional HSS steels. This is why ASP ® steels are not referred to as high speed steels (HSS), but high feed steels (HFS), based on their new characteristics.
