Bosch has enhanced the carbide technology for saber saw blades and is adding another problem solver to the existing range of exceptionally robust and durable accessories: the “Progressor for Wood and Metal” series. It comprises three saber saw blades and enables professional tradespeople to efficiently cut various building materials in demolition and renovation work. “In construction, hardened and high-alloy steels such as stainless V2A, V4A or duplex steel are increasingly being installed in combination with wooden parts”, says product manager Wilfried Kern. A simple example is inox screws which are used for fitting roof and facade parts. If these building parts have to be demolished or adjusted, it presents tradespeople with a great challenge because they cannot be cut through using standard bi-metal saw blades. This is where the “Progressor for Wood and Metal” saber saw blades come into the game.

Robust and durable for the toughest applications
The “Progressor for Wood and Metal” saber saw blades have carbide teeth welded onto them. These teeth are exceptionally robust and sharp. “In addition to this, the tooth strip is 'progressive', which is from where the blades get their name”, explains Kern. “The tooth spacing increases from the shank towards the blade tip. The same blade can therefore be used to simultaneously cut thin materials such as screws and thick materials such as wooden profiles.” As a result, the “Progressor for Wood and Metal” blades work efficiently and have a longer lifetime than bi-metal blades.

Broad saber saw blade range for various application ranges
“If you only want to cut materials made of high-alloy steel, we recommend using our 'Endurance for Stainless Steel' saw blades”, says Kern. New to the range is a 200-millimeter blade which is especially suitable for cutting through profiles and pipes with larger diameters of up to 150 millimeters. “We have also optimized the existing 115 and 150 millimeter long blades in order to be able to cover a wider range of applications”, explains the product manager. The comprehensive carbide range from Bosch also includes saber saw blades for drywall materials such as cement-bound fiber boards (“Endurance for Fiber Plaster”), aerated concrete (“Endurance for Aerated Concrete”), poroton bricks (“Endurance for Brick”) and cast iron (“Basic for Cast Iron”).

The “Progressor for Wood and Metal” carbide saber saw blades will be available at specialist retail outlets from September 2014 onwards in lengths of 150, 225 and 300 millimeters. The recommended retail prices are 17.60 euros, 23.90 euros and 29.60 euros respectively, excluding VAT. The “Endurance for Stainless Steel” 200-millimeter blade will be launched at retail outlets at the same time for the recommended retail price of 22.60 euros plus VAT.
