Diamond Wire Sawing
Diamond wire sawing is one of the more unique techniques used in demolition and heavy construction. The process of using a diamond studded wire to cut through large objects originated in stone quarries, but its applications are endless in the world in which Aggregate Technologies works. Wire sawing with the use of diamond segments allows virtually any large concrete or steel cross section to be cut through and removed. The only restriction are related to the ability to lift and remove the sections upon completion of sawing.
This technique is ideal for sawing through thick concrete that cannot be cut with traditional saws. When the wire saw is needed, a multi-strand cable with diamond segments is connected to a system of pulleys and is mechanically pulled through the concrete in a continuous manner. The system can be assembled quickly, making it easy to keep the project on schedule when other methods could cause delays. The rapid deployment of the wire saws make it the perfect means to address critical projects involving damaged structures. Overall, the diamond wire saw is the perfect solution when more traditional sawing methods are impractical.
Diamond wire sawing makes big jobs easy.
Wire sawing is perfect for applications where large sections must be cut or space restrictions govern. Possible uses for the diamond wire saw include:
- Bridge removal
- Pier demolition
- Tower demolition
- Marine bulkheads
- Industrial sites
- Pressure Vessels
- Concrete Foundations
Aggregate Technologies is ready to jump into action at a moment’s notice when wire sawing is needed, and our team of experienced contractors have used this technique in many difficult applications, including the time-sensitive removal of a damaged bridge pier. The wire saw can also be used in underwater environments. It is virtually impossible to find a job that cannot be accomplished with the diamond wire saw.
