What is a wire saw?

Views:0     Author:Site Editor     Publish Time: 2021-10-26      Origin:Site

A wire saw is a type of saw that uses a metal wire or cable to make the cuts. Industrial corded saws are usually powered. There are also manual survival cord saws suitable for cutting tree branches. wire saws are classified as either continuous (or circular or cyclic) or oscillating (or reciprocating). Sometimes the wire itself is called a "blade".

This passage is going to talk about the followings of wire saw:

1) Introduction of a wire saw

2) Advantages and disadvantages of a wire saw

3) Introduction of diamond wire saw

4) Advantages of diamond wire saw

1) Introduction of a wire saw

Rope saws are similar in principle to band saws or reciprocating saws, but they use abrasion to cut rather than saw teeth. Depending on the application, the diamond material may or may not be used as an abrasive. Wires may consist of one or more strands braided together (cables). Single strand saws can be roughened to abrasive, abrasive can be bonded to the cable, or diamond impregnated beads (and spacers) can be threaded onto the cable. wire saws are usually cooled and lubricated with water or oil.

2) Advantages and disadvantages of a wire saw

One of the main advantages of wire saws compared to blades is their smaller cuttings. Another is the accuracy of the cut. Their main disadvantage is their slower speed. Other disadvantages include a greater likelihood of wire breakage and any surface defects that could lead to cutting errors.

3) Introduction of diamond wire saw

Compared to a solid blade, a diamond wire saw (DWC) will produce less kerf and waste material (stock wire may be similar). For very expensive materials, this can save hundreds or thousands of dollars in waste. Unlike slurry saws that use bare wire and have cutting material in the cutting fluid, DWC uses only water or some fluid to lubricate, cool the kerf and remove debris. On some materials, DWC may not require water or cutting fluid, leaving a clean, dry cut.

4) Advantages of diamond wire saw

Diamond wire cutting (DWC) is a process that uses various diameters and lengths of wire impregnated with diamond powder for cutting materials of various sizes. Because of the hardness of diamond, this cutting technique can cut virtually any material softer than diamond abrasive. dWC is also practical and cheaper than some other cutting techniques; for example, in 2005, fine diamond wire with diameters of 140 to 500 microns cost about 10-20 cents per foot ($0.7/m) and was manufactured and sold for about $1.25 per foot ($4.10/m) or more. ($4.10/m) or more per foot, compared to thousands of dollars spent on solid diamond-impregnated blade tools. Thus, a 1,000 ft (300 m) spool of diamond wire costs about $200 to manufacture and sells for about $1,250. Selling costs may vary depending on wire grade and demand. Other diamond wire cutting can use formed diamond rings that pass through the cable. These larger cables are used for cutting concrete and other large projects.
