International Knife & Sale/SystiMatic has introduced a
new innovation in sawing - the LTC (Liquid Transport
Cavity) Saw. The specific placement and design of three triangular shaped holes in the saw blade allow lubricant to
spread over the surface of the saw blade, including the
teeth. This new design has proven to keep saw blades significantly cooler during cutting operation.
The unique design of the LTC Saw enhances the distribution
of coolant while preventing sawdust packing. Troy
Lumber Company, who tested the blade, reduced their sawdust
moisture content 55 percent after running the blade for
one year.
