Butt Weld

A butt weld is a type of weld used to join two band saw blade ends together by placing them edge-to-edge and fusing the material using heat, typically from an electric current in a blade welder. The resulting weld is strong, continuous, and minimally visible, allowing for smooth operation and consistent cutting performance. Properly executed butt welds should maintain the blade’s original strength and flexibility, ensuring a long service life.
