Concrete wire sawing gives the most precise cuts on ridges, beams and piers when it comes to making openings in thick walls or removing large concrete structures. It is also be referred to as diamond wire cutting. Fine Cut’s operators are able to cut through steel and heavily reinforced concrete. The saws are capable of cutting through stone, cinder blocks, bricks, asphalt, concrete and structural concrete.
A wire saw consists of a multi-strand cable with diamond segments. The cable is threaded through a system of pulleys and is then consistently pulled back and forth through the concrete section. There are very few restrictions for wire sawing. The only thing that can hold back a wire saw job is lifting and removing the cut sections.
Concrete wire sawing is the newest concrete cutting technology used in the construction industry today. Wire sawing is a braided wire cable that has been embedded with diamonds and uses a series of pulleys to guide the wire. The wire saw gives Fine Cut the ability to cut very complex structures, both steel and heavily reinforced concrete, leaving you with safe, clean, precise cut.
Wire sawing is the most efficient way to remove large concrete structures or make openings in thick walls. There is virtually no limit in terms of sawing depth. It provides safe clean cuts and allows for non-destructive sawing on nuclear plants, bridges, beams, piers and anywhere the surrounding areas are vibration and shock sensitive.
Wire saw systems are quite flexible in the field and can be arranged to accommodate limited access or confined areas while cutting vertically, horizontally, or on an angle. Wire sawing is cost effective for cutting large sections of heavily reinforced concrete such as bridge sections, machine bases, and piers. No concrete structure is too large to cut with a wire saw. Faster cutting times and low noise output make wire sawing a perfect solution when conventional cutting methods are impractical.
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.
