THEarc
SP
M.™K.TECHNOLOGY
MORSE COMPANY
SParc™ technology is an arc that is ground into the
back edge of the blade. The arched profile effectively boosts tooth penetration and chip formation
without having to increase machine pressure.
The patent pending profile design is already optimized to work on any size cut, so there is no need to
order based upon a particular type of cutting such
as light, medium or aggressive – all three cutting
actions are achieved with one saw blade
KEY APPLICATIONS
• High alloy materials
• Case-hardened materials
• Stainless steel
• Work-hardening applications
• Production cutting tool steels
•D2
Image exaggerated to illustrate
blade feature and cutting action.
While cutting, the alternating pattern of straight and
arched profiles on the back edge of the blade produces
a rocking motion on the cutting edge of the saw.
This arching motion is the same as adjusting the angle of a
handheld hacksaw that is alternately angled up and down
to produce a quicker cutting action.
ADVANTAGES TO USERS
40% Faster Cutting
Up to
SParc™ alternately reduces the number of teeth in the cut via an arching motion
on the saw blade and with less teeth in the cut at the same feed pressure means
greater penetration into the workpiece.
50% Longer Life
Up to
is possible
when compared to stock Carbide Tip Blades.
40% Longer Life
Up to
is possible
when compared to stock Bi-Metal Blades. While some teeth have increased
penetration other teeth have less, or no pressure in the workpiece enabling
longer “in-square” cutting.

NUMBERS
COMPANY
The M. K. Morse Company has begun using 10-digit numeric band saw blade part numbers rather than alphanumeric part numbers.
The first 6-digits of the part number identify the material and size specifications. The last 4-digits identify the
length of the blade for both weld-to-length bands and coil stock.
The band saw blade part number reference chart below provides the same details we have in-house to configure
the new part numbers. Customer Service at M. K. Morse will assist all band saw blade distributors with any cross
referencing needed. If you have any questions, please contact your M. K. Morse Customer Service Representative.

Guaranteed Trial Band Saw Blades
The M. K. Morse Company will provide bi-metal and carbon weld-to-length blades as a “Guaranteed Trial Order” (GTO) for the purpose of user evaluation of performance. If the blade
recommended by Morse or approved by Morse for the particular application, fails to perform
satisfactorily for the user, Morse will issue a full credit for the invoice value of the blade upon
the return of the blade to Morse.
In all instances where Morse provides bi-metal and carbon welded-to-length band saw blades for
trial and evaluation, the Morse sales representative will provide follow-up.
Morse is confident in the ability of our blades to meet the end users expectations for performance.

THE M. FEATURES

K. MORSE EXPLAINED
COMPANY
Anatomy of a Saw Blade
Although it looks like a flat piece of metal with teeth, a quality industrial band saw
blade is actually a sophisticated cutting tool. Its ability to efficiently cut through tough
metals, composite materials, plastics, and woods depends on a variety of interrelated
factors such as the design, spacing and set of the teeth; the design and capacity of the
gullets to make sure chips are efficiently removed; the composition of the backer strip;
and the gage of the metal. These considerations must be taken into account when
selecting the right blade for your application. The following Technical Pages will help
you arrive at the perfect Morse solution to your particular cutting problem.

TOOTH SET SPECIFICATIONS
Standard (0º Rake)
Hook (Positive Rake)
Here’s where the blade makes the cut. The tooth design variables include shape,
position, set, type and spacing. The combination of these variables will determine
whether the blade can move easily through your material without binding or
becoming clogged with chips.
Raker
Recurring sequence of teeth - one set right, one set left, and one unset.
Modified Raker (double set raker)
Recurring sequence set left, right, left, right, straight tooth pattern.
Variable Pitch Modified Raker (D-Double set raker)
Set sequence depends on the number of teeth in the variable pitch tooth pattern.
Recurring sequence with more than two set teeth before an unset tooth.
Wavy
Groups of teeth, usually 3 or 4, set to each side in a controlled pattern with an
unset tooth between groups.
Alternate (ETS)
Every tooth set alternately to the left and right.

Band Saw Tooth Pitches
Variable Pitch
• Varying gullet depth
• 0˚ Rake angle
• Variable tooth spacing
Advantages
• Excellent chip carrying capacity
• Reduces harmonic vibration
Benefits
• Improves blade life
• Reduces noise
• Cuts smoother & more efficiently
Variable Pitch Positive Rake
• Varying gullet depth
• Variable tooth spacing
• Positive rake angle
Advantages
• Better chip formation
• Excellent chip carrying capacity
• Reduces harmonic vibration
• More aggressive cutting
Benefits
• Cuts smoother, cuts faster
• Wide range of applications
• Reduces noise
• Easier chip generation
Standard Raker
• Equally spaced teeth
• 0˚ Rake angle
Advantages
• Excellent chip carrying capacity
Benefits
• General purpose
Skip
• Wide flat gullets
• 0˚ Rake angle
• Equally spaced teeth
Advantages
• Excellent chip carrying capacity
• Provide coarse pitch on
narrow bands
• Flat gullets
Benefits
• Excellent cutting for non-metallic & non-ferrous
applications, (wood, plastic, brass, copper,
bronze & aluminum)
• Help break “stringy” chips
Hook
• Wide rounded gullets
• Equally spaced teeth
• Positive rake angle
Advantages
• Excellent chip carrying in
non-metallic applications
• Positive rake provides better tip
26
penetration with less feed pressure
Benefits
• Good cutting performance in
discontinuous chip forming
materials (cast iron)
• Fast cutting with good
surface finish
TEETH PER INCH SELECTION
Tooth Selection Guide (teeth per inch)
Band saw tooth size (Teeth Per Inch) is determined by the size and type of material to be
cut and the desired finish. To select T.P.I. using this chart, find the colored chart for the type
of material you wish to cut. Move up to the correct material size next to the chart. Follow
across to the chart for the appropriate T.P.I. for your blade.

To find the area of bars larger than 10˝ diameter use the formula “π(3.14) x radius2”. Take half the diameter (radius) multiply it
by itself. Then multiply that by 3.14. Example: 20˝ bar. Half the diameter is 10˝. 10 x 10 = 100. 100 x 3.14 = 314 square inches.
BLADE OPTIMIZATION
Blade Break-In: Extremely Important
The extremely sharp tooth points and edges of new blades must be broken-in before applying full
feed pressure to the blade. A good analogy is that of writing with a freshly sharpened wooden pencil.
RECOMMENDED BREAK-IN PROCEDURE
• Maintain proper blade speed for the material to be cut.
• Reduce blade feed pressure or feed rate by 50% for the first 50 to 100 square inches of material cut.
• Gradually increase feed pressure or feed rate after break-in to target pressure or rate.
Using Metal Chips to Troubleshoot
You can improve the productivity of your metal cutting operation by paying close attention to the
chips made by the blade cutting through metal. This chart shows some of the common problems
that can be discovered and solved by paying attention to chips

•Check material for hard inclusions
•Position arms as close to work as
possible. Tighten arms.
•Check chip brush
•Increase tooth size
•Insufficient coolant flow
•Wrong coolant concentration
•Excessive speed and/or pressure
•Tooth size too small
•Chip brush not working
•Check coolant level and flow
•Check coolant ratio
•Reduce speed and/or pressure
•Use coarser tooth pitch
•Repair or replace chip brush
•Incorrect speed and/or feed
•Incorrect blade pitch
•Saw guides not adjusted properly
•Chip brush not working
•Work spinning or moving in vise
•Check cutting chart (Page 24-25)
•Check tooth size chart (Page 23)
•Adjust or replace saw guides
•Repair or replace chip brush
• Check bundle configuration/adjust vise pressure
•Indexing out of sequence
•Material loose in vice
•Check proper machine movement
•Check vise or clamp

Blade Usage Notes
Experience is often the best way to save time and money in your usage of band saws
for repeated cutting applications. By tracking the type of blades used, blade life, cut
times and machine settings for a given material, you will develop a knowledge base
for later comparison. It will also better equip the technical support staff at M. K. Morse
to help you get optimum results in your band saw usage.
