You may think concrete cutting is only done for demolition projects or building roads. However, concrete cutting is also used during the construction process.
Concrete Cutting and Coring During Construction
Here are the types of concrete cutting – and how each process is used in building structures.
Track-mounted wall saws make precise cuts on both vertical and horizontal surfaces. They cut as deep as 24" through concrete, brick, or masonry walls, ceilings, beams, and columns. Skilled operators are able to produce any angle, shape, or sized cuts. Wall saws can cut holes for windows, doors, and HVAC systems.
Hand saws are small and lightweight so that they can fit into tight spots during construction. Hand saws are a safe and efficient way to complete interior cutting projects, as they can be used to cut flush with floors or walls or to cut clean holes for doors, windows, and other openings.
Concrete core drills create openings for plumbing, HVAC, sprinkler, and electrical systems. The holes can be drilled to any depth, ranging from a quarter-inch to 66 inches in diameter. Core drilling can be done outside or inside – and even underwater.
Concrete Grinding and Polishing
Even though concrete grinding is not the same as concrete cutting, floor grinders are used during construction and renovation for concrete floor prep, repair, and polishing.
The PG 820 RC is a state-of-the-art, remote-controlled floor grinder that can operate in both wet and dry conditions. It has a width of 820 mm. Because the operator does not have to withstand using a manual grinder, it can run for hours.
The DC 6000 dust collector can also be used in the concrete grinding process. This machine gathers the dust that is harmful to breath – and will make your construction site cleaner.
