Designed for Ultimate Performance
Sound design is the foundation of TENRYU’s high quality saw blades. To produce blades that give the finest cuts,our designers consider the material that will be cut, thetype of machine that will be used for the cut and thedesired outcome.
Individual Attention Given toEvery Blade
Creating a TENRYU saw blade involves at least 40 separate processes that are exe- cuted by the most knowledgeable andexperienced saw blade makers in theworld. While produced in large quantity,every blade gets individual attentionduring production.
Only the FinestSteel Will Do
TENRYU uses only the very best steel in its quality blades. Incoming steel lots go through a host of inspections such as tests for consistency, tensile strengthand hardness. Each lot must fall within a specifiedtolerance or it is not accepted. This means TENRYUsuppliers must be especially careful manufacturing thesteel to ensure quality.Before production begins, every bit of steel is earmarkedfor a particular type of blade with specific instructionsfor each individual production plan. The blades arethen blueprinted for the entire production run andcoded so computers can track them from point oneto final inspection.
Precision Plate Cutting, Hardeningand Grinding Processes
TENRYU uses laser on high-end blades to incorporatethin-gap expansion slots. All TENRYU plates are hard- ened to at least 40 HRC so they can withstand heavy loads and continue working with excellent results. All plates are guaranteed to be flat. TENRYU’s proprietary flattening and surface grinding processes ensure platesthat are distortion free and have uniform thickness.
Hand Craftsmanship AssuresProper Tensioning
Hammering is a special craft that is learned only through years of experience. Much like ancient sword- smiths, the saw doctors at TENRYU’s factory are artisans. After the saw doctor determines the appropriate ten- sioning for the blade’s application, he will use specialhammers to level and tension. The plate leaves his handsflat and true and within tolerance for run-out and balance.
