IDEAL INDUSTRIES (CANADA) CORP. Announces New Line of High-Quality, High-Performance Bi-Metal Hole Saws

April 19, 2017, Ajax ON - IDEAL INDUSTRIES (CANADA) CORP. is excited to announce a comprehensive new line of high-quality Bi-Metal Hole Saws. With the needs of today's electricians in mind, IDEAL Bi-Metal Hole Saws have been engineered for durability, ease of use, and exceptional performance.

While traditional Bi-Metal Hole Saws are constructed of M3 material, IDEAL hole saws utilize M42 high-speed steel with an additional 8% of premium cobalt. This provides increased strength, greater wear resistance, and makes them less prone to chipping. The inclusion of a rigid, solid steel back plate further enhances strength and eliminates the need for an additional drive plate. This also minimizes vibration, extending the life of the hole saw and drill battery.

The unique fleem ground tooth design enables more uniform pieces of material to be cut per tooth. 4/6 variable pitch geometry cuts down on harmonic noise when cutting through tough metals, which can cause premature stripping of the teeth.

Easily cutting through a wide range of materials, including stainless steel and sheet metal, as well as aluminum, copper, brass, wood, engineered wood, nail embedded wood and plastics, the IDEAL line of Bi-Metal Hole Saws is the most flexible and easy to use in the electrical industry. This extensive cutting power also makes IDEAL hole saws the perfect choice for a variety of other applications and trades, including plumbing, construction, maintenance, and automotive.

To further improve the cutting experience, the IDEAL Bi-Metal Hole Saws come standard with 1-7/8" cutting depth which provides flexibility for uncommon situations, and saves time by allowing for single pass cutting on standard materials such as 2x4 studs.

IDEAL's 7/8" to 6" individual hole saws come with a wide slot diamond side which aids in plug removal and provides increased visibility while cutting. In addition, 2" to 6" hole saws come with cat's eye openings in the solid back plate, which provides line of sight and also aid in plug removal.

The new line of IDEAL Bi-Metal Hole Saws includes 49 individual hole saw sizes ranging from 9/16" to 6," compatible arbors, pilot bits and arbor extension, and three kits. IDEAL Bi-Metal Hole Saws are available now. For more information, visit our website, www.idealindustries.ca or contact us via info@idealindustries.ca
