Abstract

The M.K. Morse company currently produces a 6 1/2 inch circular saw blade for the power tool company Hilti. The design has many areas for improvement and can be made at a reduced cost. Our group plans to use our knowledge that we have gained in our academic careers and the knowledge we gained on co-op to improve the life and reduce the overall cost of production of this blade. We plan to use Thirdwave Finite Element Analysis Cutting Software to test different tip geometries and a design of experiments to test the blade in the various construction materials that it will potentially be used for.
