If you’re cutting firm or dense foams, you should consider using our C-Tooth blade. A more aggressive option than our V-Tooth blade, the vertical edge of the C-Tooth is designed to enter the product first, providing a precise, clean cut. The shape of the teeth also allows you to run C-Tooth blades in the opposite direction for a gentler slicing action.
Standard C-Tooth blades are available in 10 and 14 TPI, but if you’re looking for a more aggressive cut, we recommend a blade with less TPI. While it may sound counterintuitive, a lower TPI results in a bigger tooth, and a blade with bigger teeth slices more aggressively through dense or rigid foams (and other applications).
C-Tooth blades are also available in 4, 6, and 8 TPI, and Simmons can produce special tooth configurations for custom applications upon request.
