Originating in quarries to extract stone, the wire saw has since evolved into a practical method for sawing thick concrete structures.
Employing a multi-stranded cable with diamond impregnated beads known as a segments, this "diamond wire" is threaded through a series of strategically placed pulleys around the structure to be cut. The diamond wire is then propelled by a hydraulic drive pulley and is simultaneously pulled through the concrete. Wire saws are used when other concrete sawing methods are impractical. Virtually no concrete structure or cross section is too large to cut.
Wire sawing is ideal for cutting free large sections of heavily reinforced concrete such as piers, towers, machinery bases, and bridge sections to name a few. Wire sawing is especially suited for cutting where workspace is limited, vibration and impact shock would damage the surrounding structure, and when time is limited.
