While it is true that there are many ways to cut through a slab of concrete, few of them offer the benefits of wire sawing. Often enough concrete structures are too large or awkward to work with using other means of cutting or boring, requiring wire sawing services as a more specialised approach.
The process is elegant yet effective. First, core drills are used to create holes at the ends of the cutline, where a loop of diamond-edged cable is pulled through these holes and connected to a drive wheel which pulls it through the concrete so that it can be cut with precision.
Now that you know what wire-sawing is, let’s have a look at some of its benefits.
Cleanliness and Precision
Because a length of diamond-studded wire is used for the process, cuts using a wire-saw can be done with high-levels of accuracy and precision, making it the perfect approach for complicated jobs. The simplicity of this approach also makes the job much cleaner, effectively allowing the work to be done in less time than with other methods.
Heavy Rebar and Steel Beams
Wire sawing is an incredibly powerful approach to cutting through concrete, so much so that it can be used to easily cut through heavy rebar and imbedded steel beams in concrete structures. Other methods of concrete cutting are not always effective enough to do this.
No Breakage or Vibration
Because of the accuracy afforded by wire sawing, cuts can be completed with minimal resonance. Because of this, concrete structures have a better chance of retaining their integrity for reuse when wire sawing is used.
Cuts from any Position
The equipment used for wire sawing is portable, mobile and easy to work with (when the right amount of training and experience is applied). Because of this, the equipment can be moved with relative ease to approach the cut from any position; allowing cuts to be made more accurately.
