The wood industry is an industry where blades are widely used, mainly for processing, cutting and trimming wood. Here’s a closer look at how and what kind of blades are used in the wood industry:


Blade use in wood processing:


Cutting: In wood processing, common cutting operations include longitudinal and transverse cuts of wood. Longitudinal cuts usually use cutting tools such as band saws and circular saws, while transverse cuts require the use of cross-cut saws or break saws. These cutting tools are usually equipped with suitable cutting blades to cut wood efficiently and accurately.

Planing: Planing is the process of removing uneven parts of a wood surface to make it smooth and consistent. Planing blades are commonly used in wood planers to shape the surface of wood by rotating and moving the blade. The selection of planing blades should take into account the cutting effect and the wear resistance of the blade.

Inlaying: Inlaying wood is a process of cutting wood into specific shapes, such as mortise and tenon joints, half mortise and tenon joints, etc. This process requires the use of specially shaped inserts, usually custom-made tools, to ensure cutting accuracy and results.

Blade types for the wood industry:


Steel Blades: Steel blades are typically used for general woodworking operations such as lengthwise and crosswise cuts. These blades are usually made of high-speed steel (HSS) or carbon steel and have good cutting performance and wear resistance, making them suitable for general wood cutting needs.

Alloy Blades: For wood processing that requires higher cutting efficiency and wear resistance, carbide blades are an option. The alloy blade is made of high-hardness alloy material, which can better cope with impact and wear in wood and extend the life of the blade.

TCT Blades: TCT (tungsten carbide) blades are also widely used in the wood industry. These blades feature tungsten carbide teeth that are extremely hard and wear-resistant, making them suitable for high-speed cutting of wood and composite materials.

When selecting a blade, you need to base your selection on your specific wood type, cutting requirements, and processing machinery. The selection of blades should consider factors such as material quality, cutting efficiency, durability and cost, and ensure cutting safety.


To summarize, blades are used in the wood industry in a variety of ways, including cutting, planing and setting. Steel blades, alloy blades and TCT blades are common wood cutting tools, and their selection should be determined based on the specific wood type and processing needs. Using the right blade can improve production efficiency, cutting quality and work safety, providing strong support for the production of the wood industry.
