The Benefits of Track Floor Sawing and Wire Sawing
Posted on 20th November 2017 at 09:54
Diamond wall sawing or track sawing is a circular blade on a track-mounted machine that is bolted to a wall. The track saw is then used to create openings for doorways, windows or ducts. Diamond wall saw systems can also be used for creating separation joints prior to demolishing a wall, and cutting openings where a floor saw would find it difficult to gain access. Track saws are able to maintain a safe working environment, cutting the concrete or masonry without any undue stress or strain to the structure or equipment. There are many benefits to using a diamond track saw when completing construction work on floors including:
Unlike a regular saw, the diamond saw is capable of making very accurate and smooth cuts and it is entirely possible to achieve a perfect cut first time. Every cut you make using a diamond track saw therefore rarely requires further action.
Very strong and powerful
Diamond is the hardest of any bulk material and makes for very durable and strong construction equipment. Because of their specialist design, diamond track saws have great potential to make very long and perfectly straight cuts with minimal effort required.
Ideal solution for tight spaces
The track saw is the ideal solution for cutting in spaces that are difficult to access, as it is able to smooth cuts in even the most constricted of spaces.
Track saws, quite literally, produce very clean cuts. The track saw has a shroud for collecting dust whilst in operation, making for a very neat and easy process.
Track saws have a very mobile design, allowing for the equipment to be moved between job sites easily. They are also easy to set up, allowing for the utmost efficiency for your project.
A diamond wire saw is a saw that uses a diamond beaded wire or cable for cutting. This wire is wrapped around a concrete or masonry structure and then fed through a series of pulleys before being tensioned, rotated then pulled through the concrete to be cut. Because of the hardness of diamonds, the diamond wire saw can cut through almost any material that is softer than the diamond abrasive. Wire saws are also useful equipment for cutting through large sections of reinforced concrete such as bridge sections, jetties, columns or beams. The benefits of diamond wire sawing include:
Strong and precise
Diamond wire sawing is one of the most precise concrete cutting techniques we have today, achieving a very high level of cutting accuracy. After diamond wire sawing, the structure left will be a smooth clean surface that usually does not require additional surface treatments
No vibration, noise or dust
Unlike traditional saws, diamond wire saws produce little to no noise at all while in use. Diamond wire saws also have the ability to cut concrete without producing any vibration and a minimal amount of dust.
Diamond wire saws can be used to cut through material in a diverse range of environments. This makes them particularly useful when it is necessary to isolate extremely thick or awkward concrete shapes. Wire saws can cut to any depth and size of the structure and are therefore often chosen over other cutting tools for complex concrete cutting projects. Diamond wire saws can be used to cut virtually any material including stone, masonry, reinforced concrete, rebar and steel embeds.
Can be used in water
Diamond wire saws are suitable for use in water which makes it the ideal solution when the structure that needs cutting is located underwater.
