2450 Series versus 2455 Series Saws: Which One to Use?


Fullerton's solid carbide saws can benefit a wide variety of machining processes, and it is vital to understand their geometries and purpose before attempting to utilize them in your application. They are great tool to have in the shop and can assist with getting jobs done  quickly and efficienctly as possible. 

Each tooth on a saw blade is a tiny, sharp cutting edge that removes a bite of material as it passes through a workpiece. Typically, the more teeth a saw blade has, the smoother the cut. However, Fullerton uses a different approach. Choosing the proper tooth pitch for your application is especially important, but it is not the only factor determining the best saw series for your application. 

2450 & 2455 Shared characteristics:

  • Premium-grade carbide substrate offers the perfect balance of impact resistance and toughness. 
  • Engineered arbor interface characteristics aid in consistency in concentricity, leading to superior tool life.
  • Established tooth counts and stocking program supporting the industry's first 48-hour delivery custom thickness saw plan.

Selecting the optimal series will depend on several factors and is one of the principal factors to consider when choosing a saw blade, as it affects speed, finish, quality of cut, and blade life.

2450 Series for Ferrous and General-Purpose Sawing Applications

  • Medium pitch tooth count for general-purpose cutting across most material classifications for various slotting, grooving, or cutoff applications. 
  • Rake and relief are ideally suited for abrasive and high-tensile materials. Due to the lower rake angle, this tooth form is particularly suitable for short-chipping materials. 
  • It has proven consistent in tooth form and relief for general cutting conditions.

2455 Series for Non-Ferrous, Aluminum, Brass, and Plastic Applications

  • Medium-course pitch tooth count is specifically designed for cutting Non-Ferrous material classifications for a wide-range of slotting, grooving, or cutoff applications in materials with excellent ductility and malleability.
  • Enhanced Rake and Relief suited for lighter, low-tensile materials due to the increased rake angle, this tooth form is particularly suitable for softer, longer-chipping materials.
  • Engineered clearance and highly polished sides for part finish and quality in the cut.
