The advantages of concrete wire sawing are plentiful and wide, and we’re here to help! Concrete wire sawing is effective and versatile sawing tool that is used mainly in challenging projects where normal saws won’t work. Some of these include machine bases, large slabs of concrete that has been reinforced, piers, steel encased concrete, underwater cuts and cutting beyond the depths of conventional tools. 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 to keep it from overheating due to extreme friction.
Now that you know what concrete wire sawing is, let’s talk about the advantages! 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, the list goes on. There are three top important advantages to look at.
The first big advantage of concrete wire sawing is: its environmentally friendly with minimal noise or pollution. Since the saw uses water to operate, concrete dust doesn’t build up and damage the equipment nor does it produce much airborne dust, so it keeps the area clean, and the workers don’t inhale concrete particles.
Secondly, 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 its always the right size and location – precise.
The third advantage to concrete wire sawing is there is no limit to the depth it can saw. Concrete wire saws can even cut underwater! They can reach an almost unlimited depth range.
