Wire saw cutting, also known as concrete wire cutting and diamond wire sawing, is the most efficient way to remove large concrete structures or make openings in thick walls. There is virtually no limit in terms of sawing depth. Our innovative wire saws are used when space is limited, or the material is especially thick and time is of the essence.
Benefits Of Wire Sawing:
Safe, clean cuts.
Non-percussive, vibration-free demolition in sensitive areas like power generating stations, hospitals and occupied buildings.
Vibration and shock-sensitive free sawing on bridges, beams, and piers.
The ability to cut holes up to 8 feet in diameter at any depth.
Wire Sawing In Action:
Basic Electric Power Case Study
Basic Electric Power needed to install a new coal feeding system via an opening measuring 15.5 feet x 19.3 feet. Diamond was put to work wire sawing this opening through six feet of thick concrete floor.
North American Nuclear Facility Case Study
One of the largest U.S. power companies relied on Diamond’s wire sawing and core drilling services to access and attach a 90 degree fitting to two 36 inch large pipes buried under nine feet of solid concrete.
Devere Construction Company Case Study
Devere Construction used Diamond’s wire sawing to help demolish a building joined to another building that was not to be damaged. The two structures shared seven, 50 feet tall, 3 feet thick concrete pillars.
Can Robots break overhead concrete?Yes, they can break overhead concrete with demolition arms that reach 15’ high. They can reach even higher, using Hi-LOs and other supporting equipment as a base.
How long does a robot take to demolish concrete or other structures?Approximately 30,000 lbs of concrete can be demolished in an 8-10 hour shift.
