I do not need to sand after the cut, although saw setup, feed rate and things that the blade can't control must be taken into consideration.
This is just what I use, there are other brands available.

"10" Industrial Glue Line Ripping Blade

Ripping

This blade’s specially designed triple chip tooth design produces extremely smooth, true surfaces for gluing and finish work. There is no need for sanding or jointing after the cut. The ideal working range is from 1/8" to 1" thick. This blade also features laser cut anti-vibration slots, practically eliminating the vibration that resonates in standard blades. With this ultimate ripping blade, there is no need for stabilizers.

    Premium TiCo™ HI-Density Carbide Ripping Blend for Maximum Performance
    Heavy-Duty Thick Kerf and Plate ensure a stable, flat blade for long cutting life
    Laser-Cut Anti-Vibration Slots drastically reduce vibration and sideways movement in the cut extending blade life and giving a crisp, splinter-free flawless finish
    Perma-Shield™ Non-Stick Coating reduces blade drag, protects the blade from corrosion and pitch build-up."

Anyone use this blade to cut segments. I know it is more for ripping than cross cuts but segments are kinda a split between the 2

I do and it is great.  Little to no sanding needed; usually none.

"standard" segments are cross-cuts.
Any cut that is at a 90 degree angle to the grain direction all the way to 45 degrees is a cross-cut.
Once you pass 45 degrees, you are crosscutting less and ripping more.

I wouldn't use a ripping blade, it's not designed to cross-cut.
For crosscutting of segments on my tablesaw Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register

If you don't like changing blades (many people don't) I would suggest a good quality combination blade but I prefer to use a blade dedicated to the task at hand. Changing blades is just part of woodworking. IMO

For the laminations the little delta planer with the insert blades will do a great job of thicknesing and smoothing for the glue up.  About 1/3 the cost of a drum sander.  Most quality combination blades rip well enough to edge glue from.
