Bosch is adding new problem solvers to its range of jigsaw blades with carbide technology: ”Progressor for Wood+Metal“ for wood/metal and ”Clean for HPL“ for high-pressure laminate. Both jigsaw blades are the first on the market to offer carbide technology for these specific ranges of applications. Furthermore, the ”Clean for Plastic Composites“ jigsaw blade makes it possible to work on compo-sites of wood and plastic.

As with all blades from Bosch's carbide range, the new jigsaw blades offer signi- ficant advantages for professionals from a wide range of construction industries, such as floor-layers and tilers, terrace builders, carpenters and installers: Selec- ted carbide ranges and a special welding technology allow for reliable, low-wear sawing – whether you are sawing the hardest of materials, such as high-strength and high-alloy steel, or abrasive materials. Common bi-metal blades are unable to cover these applications. At the same time, the lifetime of Bosch jigsaw blades with carbide technology is up to 20 times longer than common bi-metal saw blades.

Quick cutting for any material thickness: ”Progressor for Wood+Metal”

The ”Progressor for Wood+Metal“ jigsaw blade stands out thanks to the indivi- dually welded carbide teeth, which have a progressively increasing tooth pitch. This means that you can quickly cut an extremely wide range of building mate- rials, irrespective of the thickness of the material. The jigsaw blade is particularly suitable for fast, coarse separating cuts in wood/metal composite materials, for example metal cladded and metal reinforced wooden boards that have screws or hardened nails embedded in them.

Problem solver for materials that are prone to tearing: ”Clean for HPL”

The ”Clean for HPL“ jigsaw blade is designed for particularly clean cuts in materials like high-pressure laminates, façade panels or laminate. They have a polished carbide tooth strip that consists of two rows of teeth that are arranged at different angles opposite to each other. These blades are therefore perfect for clean cuts in materials that are prone to tearing.

For wood/plastic composite materials: ”Clean for Plastic Composites”

The ”Clean for Plastic Composites“ jigsaw blade is suitable for adjusting cuts in abrasive materials. This includes wood/plastic composites, such as terrace panels or fence systems, as well as mineral-organic composites. Thanks to polished tungsten carbide teeth, it achieves reliably clean cuts even with compo-site materials that are difficult to work on.

The extensive carbide range from Bosch also comprises jigsaw blades for other special applications, for example for high-alloy steel (“Endurance for Stainless Steel“), drywalling materials such as cement-based fiber boards (“Endurance for Fiber Plaster“), ceramics (“Special for Ceramics“) and carbon fiber (“Clean for Carbon Fiber“).

The ”Progressor for Wood+Metal“, ”Clean for HPL“ and ”Clean for Plastic Com-posites“ carbide jigsaw blades are available in specialist retail outlets from April 2017 onwards. These blades fit all jigsaws with a T shank mount. Subject to change.
