the guesswork out for your band saws' performance!
With Armstrong’s VariDesign Deluxe software you are in control of your
saws. VariDesign helps you design standard saw teeth, variable
as well as variable pitch and depth saw tooth patterns for your sawing
application (not some other sawmill down the road).
Pitch and Depth saws feed faster, saw straighter and produce more
lumber with less tendency to washboard.
Armstrong's VariDesign Deluxe is
an easy-to-use tool for developing and analyzing band saw teeth. You enter the info about the tooth you are using now (or the tooth you
think will work best), such as tooth spacing, gullet depth, and hook
angle. VariDesign will draw the tooth on your computer monitor and
show you the performance you can expect. You can easily try other
values and immediately see the performance change you can expect.
VariDesign provides detailed
printed reports, full-scale drawings and data import/export. This
software includes all the graphical design tools for Armstrong's
VariSharp CNC band saw sharpener for controlling the geometry of each
tooth plus many additional analytical tools. Every saw filer,
sawmiller and sawmill engineer will want VariDesign loaded on their

- Prints 1:1 scale tooth profile with
detailed tooth data: what you see is what you get.
- Exports data in DXF (Drawing
Interchange File), the format most saw makers prefer to exactly
reproduce the designed shape.
- Over 300 tooth shapes pre-loaded,
plus room for a nearly unlimited number of custom designs.
- Tracks saw data including saw
length, width, thickness, kerf, SFPM and average depth of cut.
- Calculates and displays saw
performance data in graphs that are dynamically updated as tooth geometry is adjusted.
- Generates feed and speed tables for
each tooth in a variable pitch segment.
- Automatically generates a multiple
tooth variable pitch and depth (VPD) segment based on a custom
tooth you design.
- Fit-to-Saw function that slightly
shrinks or expands a custom VPD segment to fit your length of saw.
