What does dicing mean?
Dicing is a process in which the products cut into small blocks or dice. This is done to create uniformly sized pieces to ensure even products. The dicing process can be performed manually or with a machine. The tool or machine used for this is provided with a saw blade. With the teeth of the saw blade, which have cutting edges, a cut can be made in the material to be processed. The material is usually cut. We call the movement of the saw through the material the feed. The saw blade performs the cutting movement, the feeding movement is triggered by applying pressure to the saw blade or to the material to be processed.
How can Simac support the dicing process?
The dicing process in which Simac can support you is using round dicing blades equipped and or mounted with 2 flanges or with a fixed HUB being a combined part of the sawblade to ensure that the blade is fixed firmly and the exposure of the sawing blade is of exact determined maximum length.
Need help to make the right choice for your dicing application?
Choosing the right blade means choose
- the right thickness
- the right exposure with a hub blade
- the right OD
- with the right flanges to reach the right exposure
How can I extend life time of dicing blades?
Too much exposure will give you vibrations, causing worse cut quality and possible shorter life time of the blades and even blade breakage. A hub blade will give you more certainty that the exposure is correct and the vibrations are minimal as you can make less operator mistakes when using flanges and saving operator time. Further the RPM, feed rate and cooling is of great importance. Setting up the right procedure asks for experience and skill.
Simac helps you to choose the right blade, give you detailed technical advice for the right set up of your dicing procedure and ultimately attaining higher profitability.
