Benefits of Using a Wire Saw for Your Concrete Cutting Job

Wire Sawing

There are a lot of benefits of using a wire saw for a large concrete cutting job. But before we list those benefits, we would like to describe what a wire saw is and describe when one is typically used. Also, we will give you some guidance on how to find the best concrete cutting company near you.

What is a wire saw?

The aptly named wire saw cuts with a metal wire or cable. The wire itself may be referred to as a blade, and its blade means serious business. Wires used in wire saws can have single or multiple strands braided together into a cable. In addition, a single-strand saw often has diamond beads to give it extra cutting power.  

Hydraulic motors pull the blade of a wire saw through a system of guide wheels (or guided pulleys). This allows the wire (or blade) to move back and forth continuously. The wire is often lubricated with water or oil.    To gain a clearer understanding of a wire saw, look at these images of the saw and wire-saw cutting projects
