Wire Sawing is the most efficient way to remove large concrete structures such as foundations, bridges, piers, thick walls and many complex structures both in steel and heavily reinforced concrete. Sawing depths are unlimited. Wire Sawing provides unique technology using a multi-strand diamond cable through a series of pulleys to produce a continuous looped cut. Wire Saws produce little to no vibration, extremely low noise volumes and are well suited for confined spaces. Dry cutting can be achieved when water slurry is a concern.
Wire Sawing In Melbourne
If you have a job in Melbourne where traditional concrete saws are not an option, then you should consider wire sawing. A wire saw is a machine that uses metal cable or wire for cutting. Wire saw machines are of two types: oscillating and continuous, but the continuous option is more popular.
Wire sawing is a simple but efficient process for cutting through large sections of reinforced concrete, bridges, towers, and steel structures. Simply put, it is very useful for removing large concrete structures. It is commonly used in challenging conditions where the workspace is confined and narrow.
Wire Sawing: A Description of How It Works
Wire sawing refers to a concrete cutting method that uses a braided and diamond impregnated cable to cut through concrete. The cable is first strung either through or around the target object and a series of pulleys is used to tension it across the surface of the object to be cut.
The wire saw unit helps draw up the cable’s slack through a series of pulleys contained within the wire saw unit. The wire is then strapped around the target object such as a beam or column and used to cut through the concrete of any thickness.
A wire saw is a great option where vibrations or noise from the more traditional concrete cutting methods are not allowed. Wire sawing allows for the cutting of very thick, large, or complex structures using a series of pulleys and an endless loop of cable.
Wire sawing can cut through concrete of virtually unlimited thickness and the resultant cuts are very clean and precise, which is why it is such an efficient process for cutting through concrete and can be used for both residential and commercial applications.
Wire Sawing Applications
Many of our Big Cut Sawing clients require wire cutting services at some point in their commercial or residential construction and renovation. Here are some of the areas where wire sawing can be used:
– Underwater cutting
– Column removal
– Demolition of large concrete structures such as piers, towers, dams, etc.
– Large, bulk removal
– Arch door openings
– Cutting concrete of virtually unlimited thickness
– Structural and foundation modifications
A Versatile Concrete Cutting Method
Wire sawing is particularly effective for construction projects that require concrete sawing in tight spaces or where it would be unfeasible to use larger machinery. At Big Cut Sawing, we understand that customisation is of utmost importance and always ensure that we meet all the customer requirements.
Wire sawing allows for highly controlled demolition and ensures the safety of the operating technician due to its ability to be operated outside the user’s immediate space. With wire sawing, cuts can be made in various directions using wires of varying size and length and ensure minimal damage to surrounding structures.
The cable/wire used in wire sawing can be of virtually any length, width, and cutting depth, which means that modern wire sawing technology offers almost limitless possibilities. It is due to this reason that wire sawing is used where other cutting methods are impractical.
Benefits of Wire Sawing
Quiet: Our wire sawing produces less noise pollution compared to other concrete cutting methods, which makes it ideal in housing environments or for work being done at late hours since it is less likely to cause a disturbance to other people in the area.
Precision Cutting: The cable/wire we use in wire sawing is guided through the cross-section of the target object using drill holes, which means that cuts are precise to the size and shape specified. Since the wire is more flexible and narrower compared to standard ring saws, cuts can be completed more precisely.
Clean to Use: Wire cutting produces less dust compared to other concrete cutting methods since it works through abrasion and uses water as a lubricant, which makes the process smoother and easier and means that there’s less mess to be cleaned up afterwards.
Quick: The process of wire is operated almost entirely by a motor that works at a fast and consistent speed that manual labour simply cannot provide, which means that the job is completed much faster.
Can be Used in Restricted Spaces: Wire cutters are typically more flexible in their use since they require less space to operate and because the equipment is not operated manually, it is perfect for jobs and job sites that cannot be accessed by workers with ring or wall saws.
Deep Cuts: Wire sawing allows for a virtually unlimited range for cutting
Increased Safety: The wire saw is operated via remote control, which means that there’s less chance of accidents that involve members of staff.
