New DELTA® Full-Kerf Melamine Saw Blades Reduce Material Tear Out and Offer Longer Life

JACKSON, Tenn. (June 16, 2010) – DELTA Machinery introduces its new line of four full-kerf melamine premium woodworking saw blades, practically eliminating the most frequent and costly problems in cutting melamine material – tear out and chipping – while sustaining longer blade life.

“The feedback we collected from more than 200 professionals working with melamine in 50 commercial and residential woodworking saw shops stressed the importance of no chipping or tear out, plus longer blade life and the ability to re-sharpen their blades,” said Simon Barrett, a product manager for DELTA Machinery. “With a fervent commitment to designing and engineering products that exceed the demands of our customers, these new saw blades represent the high performance and precision they expect from DELTA Machinery.”

The complete line of saw blades is a product of precision engineering and more than 35 years of experience in high-end saw blade production. DELTA melamine saw blades reveal exceptional quality control that starts with a heavy-duty, premium plate. Each plate is laser-cut with harmonic body slots to reduce vibration and noise generation. The arbor hole is honed to improve the blade’s fit and reduce blade run out. For even greater ensured accuracy, DELTA conducts a 100 percent blade check to guarantee the performance of every blade.

DELTA melamine saw blade teeth utilize submicron NANO-grade carbide and feature hollow-faced tips for two times the cutting edges that result in chip-free cuts. This new design is extremely durable, creating extended run time and improved cutting distance compared to competitive blades, and is ideal for commercial applications and cabinet construction. In addition, the ability to sharpen the blades after extensive use rather than discarding them extends the life of the blade, providing a greater value.

Saw blade information, including diameter, hook angle, tooth count and grind geometry, are laser-etched directly on to each blade. Authorized re-sharpening centers are also easily accessible at The updated website also features a full manufacturing video, blade selector, and highlights saw blade features and benefits. 

The new line of DELTA Full-Kerf Melamine Saw Blades is available in four sizes: 10 inches, 12 inches, 220 millimeters and 300 millimeters. Each SKU is backed by a 30 day warranty and is available now in Independent Retailers for a suggested retail price range of $85–$120.
