LENOX Brings Manufacturers The Latest In Its Band Saw Blade Innovation With GEN-TEC

EAST LONGMEADOW, MA [Aug 17, 2020] – LENOX® a leader in carbide cutting performance, announces GEN-TECH, a new set-style carbide tipped band saw blade for general purpose cutting. Through innovative design and cutting technology, GEN-TECH offers versatility, long blade life, and a low cost per cut. GEN-TECH is proudly made in the USA with global materials in the LENOX East Longmeadow, MA manufacturing facility.

"Designed for versatility, GEN-TECH cuts a wide variety of materials, shapes and sizes. Ideal manufacturing industries that will use GEN-TECH include aerospace, defense and energy, with applications in carbon steels, bearing steels, mold steels, alloy steels, tool steels and stainless, as well as titanium and nickel-based alloys. Featuring a wide kerf set-style tooth structure, GEN-TECH helps to prevent pinching in these high-stress, hard to cut materials.
