The diamond wire saw originated as a tool for the stone industry approximately 15-20 years ago. It was successfully applied to the cutting of reinforced concrete in the early 1980's.Much of the success of the wire saw is due to the increase in productivity acquired. The job is completed in less time and with less manpower than required by conventional demolition methods. Conventional methods, which use jackhammers, hoe-rams, explosives and the like, create a considerable amount of noise, dust and vibration. The diamond wire saw on the other hand, creates very little noise, no dust, and does not weaken surrounding structures because of vibration. Also, the length of the wire is virtually unlimited - any size cut can be made.In operation, the diamond-embedded wire is driven and guided by a pulley system. The guide wheels or pulleys are mounted near the structure to be removed and generally are no larger than 16' in diameter. The power unit can be placed several yards from the work area. The pulley system allows for the removal of heavy reinforced concrete where the work space is limited or in areas that pose a safety hazard for the operator.
