Concrete Wire Sawing – What is It?

Concrete Wire Sawing BlogConcrete wire sawing is ideal for segmenting or removing large chunks of reinforced concrete that other saws simply can’t manage. Manual saws are frequently unable to complete complex tasks such as cutting through concrete structures, cross-sections, and other challenging objects—wire saws can help in those moments. If your project could use concrete wire sawing services – call Fine Cut Drilling and Sawing LLC today!

A concrete wire saw consists of thin steel wire that is embedded with diamond segments. This tool cuts through hard materials using abrasion, with wires wrapped around a system of pulleys aligned to the direction of the cut. This whole system is fed water to keep the wire lubricated and keep it from overheating due to extreme friction. Some things concrete wire sawing can cut through include machine bases, large slabs of concrete that have been reinforced, piers, steel-encased concrete, underwater cuts, and cutting beyond the depths of conventional tools. Conventional diamond saw blades might not work for a project for several reasons; too large of a structure, too irregular of a shape, location is too inaccessible, and the list goes on. Here are three top important advantages to look at with concrete wire sawing:

  1. It’s environmentally friendly, with minimal noise or pollution. Since the saw uses water to operate, concrete dust doesn’t build up and damage the equipment or produce much airborne dust, so it keeps the area clean, and the workers don’t inhale concrete particles.
  2. Concrete wire sawing produces accurate and precise cuts leaving a clean and smooth surface. A narrow wire is more flexible than ring saws, and it’s guided through precut drill holes, meaning it’s always the right size and location – precise.
  3. There is no limit to the depth a wire saw can saw. Concrete wire sawing can even be done underwater! They can reach an almost unlimited depth range.
