Cut the Hardest Materials
Our 14″ Zio Blade is the ultimate high-speed turbo blade for cutting hard materials. Of course, operators will appreciate the super-fast and chip-free cutting of these types of materials.
Our proprietary steel core prevents blade deflection, allowing for straighter cutting even in extreme cutting applications. The raised hub provides a solid connection to the tool eliminating vibration and dampening noise.
Available in 4”-10” sizes
Name Game: In Italian culture, the “Zio” (Uncle) plays an important role in the family. You can depend on a “Zio” to have your back, just like you can depend on our blade to cut. So, naming this blade in honour of my Great Uncle Baldo was fitting. He was an inspiring Vatican-trained mosaic and tile artisan.
Quality Level: Professional Grade
Materials: Granite/Stone/Refractory/Brick etc.
Equipment: High-Speed Saws/Masonry Saws/Angle Grinders/Hand Saws
How to Use:
- Make sure that you have chosen the proper blade for the application.
- Assure that the saw blade flange, shaft and guard are in good condition. Check your manufacturer’s user guide for safety precautions.
- Mount the blade in the proper rotation. Check for an arrow on the saw blade or look at the diamond segment to determine the direction. The diamond in the matrix appears as a “comet” with a diamond head and a “tail” following behind. The direction of the blade follows the “comet”.
- When cutting through a slab, make sure that you clear the blade from the cut before the slab shifts. If not, you could pinch the blade between the slabs immediately inhibiting the blade and possibly tearing away segments.
- To remove the blade, cut it free from the slab using another blade instead of pulling it out or risk bending the core.
Tips & Tricks:
Never force the blade to cut, allow the weight of the saw be the cutting pressure. Always keep the RPMs of the saw constant.
Start by making a very shallow ½” cut to establish a base guide.
If the blade becomes dull, cut a concrete block to re-dress the blade.
Anything that is extremely abrasive or fine should be cut with a material specific blade.
