  • Patent number: 10882127
    Abstract: A guide block assembly for controlling a saw blade of a band saw during cutting. The assembly includes a mounting part having a rear part adapted for securing the guide block assembly to the band saw frame and a front part for detachably securing a thrust part. The thrust part includes at least two thrust slats detachably secured in the front part of the mounting part. The slats are aligned and spaced apart around a center section of the front part. When using the guide block assembly, vibrations, chattering and heating of the saw blade are substantially reduced, and the production rate and speed are increased. The guide block assembly is typically used for band saws that have a cutting speed of between 1800-6000 m/min, pulley wheels having diameters of 1000-2500 mm, and saw blade widths in the range of 80-360 mm.
