IBEX teamed up with Munkfors over 25 years ago to bring you the best blading available on the market today. Munkfors has been leading the blading business since 1948 and has developed their unique patented profile-grinding method to produces blades which:

    • are sharper
    • cut cleaner
    • produce less material waste
    • last longer
    • cause fewer production disruptions

Munkfors bandsaw blades incorporate a unique manufacturing technology to guarantee blade products with high quality and long life.

The Munkfors Manufacturing Process
    • Munkfors select strip steel from the world’s leading steel manufacturers
    • From this strip they grind the blades teeth with a patented profile grinding method
    • This grinding gives an extremely sharp edge over a traditional punched or mill method
    • The quality of strip steel and the patented profile grinding method produce sharper cutting edges and high quality blades tooth after tooth after tooth
Maintaining the Standards

To deliver the best final product we take the Munkfors coil, and carefully cut & weld the product. The coil is cut and tooth matched to ensure the final blade has a continuous teeth numbers through the welded area. The blade is then welded and cleaned to give a well-balanced blade to ensure maximum cutting potential, and to produce accurate cutting and better final product appearance.

For every cutting operation, and every bandsaw IBEX can supply the right bandsaw blade for the specific application. Whether it is for chicken, fish, beef or lamb, frozen fresh or chilled, bone in or out.  Blades are also available for handsaws and carcass splitting saws.

Munkfors have an extensive range of blades, from their standard blades for general processing, through to their minimum set options with reduced sawdust for increased yields. With patented profile grinding techniques Munkfors are able to produce blades which have a smaller set but achieve the same high product feed rates of larger set blades.

Munkfors minimum set blades decrease the sawdust wastage due to their reduced set but still have a higher feed rate due to the sharpness of the blade which results in a longer blade life.

There has long been a compromise for blade manufactures between reducing the set of the blade to decrease sawdust vs. having an increased blade set to improve feed rates; the Munkfors blade incorporates both criteria for maximum efficiency.

The set on .56mm - .60mm & .50mm - .56mm bandsaw blades creates a slot, or cutting path in the product, this cutting path is wider than the back of the blade and is the factor that determines the saw dust volume that is produced from a bandsaw blade.

Blade Thickness

The Munkfors minimum set blade has a narrower cutting path than the standard blade currently in use, producing a 14% reduction in saw dust over standard set blades, resulting in greater yields and reduced sawdust smear.
