Diamond Wire Sawing


Ram Services Limited - Diamond Wire Sawing

Diamond wire sawing has been traditionally used in stone quarries and the development of the equipment for use in the construction industry has been a fairly new development.

Using diamond impregnated wire driven around a series of pulleys by electrical or hydraulic drive systems, diamond wire sawing can be used in a variety of ways not feasible with other forms of diamond drilling or sawing equipment. Examples include work in restricted spaces where access might be awkward, complex structural configurations and situations where especially thick or highly reinforced sections of concrete need to be cut for removal.

The technique is fast, vibration free, does not require over cutting, and can leave square sided smooth cut openings where needed
