Saw Blade Tooth Configurations
FLAT TOP GRIND (FTG) flat top teeth are generally used on ripsaw blades. They work great for hard and soft woods and are a very efficient a removing wood quickly. Less emphasis is placed on chipping and splintering because these are reduced when ripping with the grain. Flat top teeth can also be used with other tooth designs to "rake" material out of the cut.
ALTERNATING TOP BEVEL (ATB) this tooth design means that the carbide alternates between a right and left hand bevel. Also corresponding tooth face shears can be added to varying degrees to provide a knife like edge on the high cutting side. These blades are great for cross-cutting solid woods and veneered plywoods. Higher tooth counts can provide for a finer cut. Also this design can be used on rip saw blades because it helps the blade to not follow the grain of the wood.
TRIPLE CHIP GRIND (TCG) this is a great blade for cutting really hard materials like MDF, plastics, laminates and non-ferrous metals. These are high production blades and will keep their edge longer than ATB with almost as good cut quality.
COMBINATION (LRLRS) This is kind of a generic term and can have many applications. L=left, R=Right, S=Straight, Raker. This tooth design can be used on combination Rip and Crosscutt blades by adding an enlarged gullet after the Raker tip or can be used on precision trim saws with enhanced face shears and top bevels for extremely smooth chip-free multi-use cutting.
HIGH ALTERNATING TOP BEVEL (HATB) like the name implies this design is similar to the ATB except the bevels are increased and enhanced. This design can provide extra fine crosscutting and excel at cutting materials that are prone to chipping. The extreme knife like cutting edge is the perfect blade for slicing through melamine with a super clean edge.
CONICAL (RA ) Conic scoring blades are designed to work in comination with our panel saw blades. By adjusting the depth of the score, the width of the cut can be adjusted to just slightly wider than the main panel sawblade. This combination is commonly used on double sided melamine and veneered plywoods that chip or fur easily.
