What is wire sawing?
Wire sawing is a technique used regularly in the construction industry for a number of reasons. Firstly let’s examine how wire sawing actually cuts. Wire sawing, as the name suggests, uses wire or cable strands braided together as an alternative to a traditional blade. Therefore, the structure is cut through the act of abrasion rather than the use of sharp teeth or a serrated edge as on a saw blade. Unsurprisingly the friction results in a rapid build up of heat so it is important to keep the wire lubricated, most commonly using water to do this. The additional advantage of the use of water is that this keeps the dust to a minimum. Wire cutting is usually used when precision cuts are required. An example of this might be if you needed to cut a concrete wall away from a heritage stone wall or brick wall without damaging the older structure.
What are the advantages of wire sawing?
The advantages of using wire sawing over traditional sawing methods are numerous. As mentioned above wire sawing is selected when precision cutting is required. It is also used on large structures when track sawing is not possible. Another benefit to wire sawing is the smaller kerf, which means there are less notches than you might find on a cut done with a blade with teeth.
Wire sawing has an unlimited cutting depth and low noise levels. There is also less material waste incurred when using the wire sawing technique, which is always a plus in todays world where waste and recycling are key areas for focus and positioning. Wire sawing is none percussive and is controlled remotely.
In summary, wire sawing is a fast and flexible method of cutting with no fumes or vibrations. To find out more about how wire sawing techniques might work on your construction or demolition site contact us on 0161 443 2822 or you can email us email@example.com.
