Economy 3000


Cost effective for thin walled tubes and profiles in (stainless) steel

The EC 3000 saw blade is cost effective due to a sophisticated PVD coating for wear protection. This coating has been developed in order to achieve a very low friction coefficient at a low cost level. Also very suitable for cutting stainless steel.


  • Cuts much faster and has a much longer blade life than the steam treated blade
  • No side pick-up
  • Good wear protection due to the smooth coating surface


  • All structural steel and non-alloy steel thin walled tubes
  • Tensile strength up to 600 N/mm2
  • Suggested cutting speed: 60 – 120 m/min
  • Feed: 0,03 – 0,09 mm/tooth
  • Machines: manual, semi-automatic, automatic
