What is Concrete Wire Sawing

December 2012

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. The wire is impregnated with diamonds, enabling it to cut through almost any material at any depth.

When is 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
