Here at Diamond Drilling UK Ltd, we offer a range of services using core drilling and diamond drilling technologies, offering our customers the most precise work possible. Today we’re going to pay particular attention to our range of diamond sawing services, which include wall sawing, floor sawing, and wire sawing. Read on to find out more.
Diamond Wall Sawing
Wall sawing is typically used to cut accurate openings in walls, for the purpose of creating space for doors, vents, and windows. It is also known as track sawing as it uses a track-mounted system, which bolts to the wall in order to create the necessary openings. This type of sawing may also be used to create separation joints before a demolition project for easy access. Wall saws make use of a circular diamond blade for straight, smooth openings in walls. It is possible to use a 3-phase hydraulic wall saw, or a 3-phase high frequency wall saw.
Diamond Floor Sawing
Another method for creating openings in reinforced concrete is diamond floor sawing. It works in a similar way to wall sawing, but is best suited to applications on a horizontal level, such as forming openings for service ducts, ventilation ducts, lift shafts and escalators. Again, it is also used as a technique prior to any necessary demolition. Additionally, other applications it may be used for could be cutting expansion and crack inducing joints. You can also form trenches for utility contractors, and create clean-cut edges within concrete slabs. In addition to concrete, it’s also possible to use floor sawing for asphalt services like motorways, bridges and pavements.
Diamond Wire Sawing
As the name suggests, diamond wire sawing makes use of a metal wire or cable. The diamond beaded wire wraps around the structure (either concrete or masonry) and then this wire is fed through a series of pulleys before being tensioned. Lastly, through a process of rotation, the wire is pulled through the concrete in order to cut through it. The structure can be nearly any size or shape, and it is the perfect method for cutting through large structures made from reinforced concrete, whether bridge sections, jetties, columns, or beams. Due to the flexible nature of diamond wire sawing, it can be ideal for use on both extremely tick or awkward concrete shapes.
