Concrete Wire Sawing

Some concrete sawing jobs require an over-the-top creativity to solve a difficult problem. The wire saw is one way to address large-scale concrete & steel sawing jobs of extra-large cross sections. When the removal or demolition of a large structure like a pier, dock, column, tower, or bulkhead is required, traditional saws will not get the job done. That is where the wire saw comes in to save the day.

Concrete wire sawing — an ancient approach made new

This method originated in stone quarries, but Aggregate Technologies has taken it and applied it to the world of heavy construction. A series of cables and strands are passed through a system of pulleys to cut concrete sections that cannot be cut with traditional saws. Whether the section is too big for a standard saw, or the space too limited on-site, sometimes a large saw just cannot get the job done.

Used properly, the wire saw allows large sections to be removed quickly, efficiently, and safely. This technique can even be used when a job must be done immediately. The contractors of Aggregate Technologies can be ready at the drop of a hat, making the wire saw the ideal solution when there is not time to assemble and transport the typical, cumbersome saws used on most projects. Aggregate Technologies’ wire sawing abilities have saved the day numerous times when critical infrastructure was damaged and repairs were required immediately. When there can be no delay, the wire saw’s advantages of speed and efficiency make it the go-to choice. Aggregate Technologies has the experience working with the wire saw in difficult situations, and should be the first call when a job requires the creative engineering of the wire saw.
