Concrete wire sawing is a technique that originated in the stone quarries of the past. Today, it is the ideal solution when a job requires extremely thick concrete to be cut. Wire sawing is the most practical option and technique for cutting through structures and cross sections that are too large to be cut practically using any other method.
Concrete wire sawing is commonly used for underwater cutting, cuts in restricted or remote areas, cuts that require minimal vibration, anchor door openings and cutting through depths which are beyond the reach of conventional tools. The concrete wire saws are capable of cutting through stone, cinder blocks, bricks, asphalt, concrete and structural concrete.
Fine Cut’s concrete wire saws give the most precise cuts on ridges, beams and piers when it comes to making openings in thick walls or removing large concrete structures. Concrete wire sawing can also be referred to as diamond wire cutting. Fine Cut’s operators are able to cut through steel and heavily reinforced concrete.
Concrete wire sawing is an innovative concrete-sawing technique used for particularly challenging projects where tradition saws aren’t effective. Wire saws consist of a thin wire that cuts via the use of abrasion.
When is Concrete Wire Sawing Necessary?
Versatility is a wire saw’s greatest feature. Very often, materials are simply too strong, too large, or your work space is too confined, for a traditional concrete saw. In those cases, a diamond sawing wire is more than capable of completing the project.
Due to its diamond cutting edge, the wire saw is ideal for segmenting or removing large chunks of reinforced concrete that other saws simply can’t manage. The wire saws can also be configured to tackle such obstacles as steel nuclear reactors or metal engine blocks.
Wire saws also excel in difficult projects involving:
- Steel-encased concrete or concrete-encased steel supports
- Concrete retaining walls
- Reinforced rebar
Because of their adaptability and strength, the concrete wire saw has become an indispensable tool for any concrete cutting company.
Along with their versatility, concrete wire saws have other benefits, including:
- Minimal environmental impact
- Minimal vibration and noise
- Performs consistently in challenging environments, such as underwater
- Ability to cut any part in any direction
