Wire Sawing


Wire Sawing: Precision Cutting for Large Concrete Structures

Serving Clients in Texas and Across the US

Have a job where traditional concrete saws are not an option? Wire sawing may be your answer. A wire saw is a machine using a metal wire or cable for cutting. There are two types of wire saw machines: continuous and oscillating (sometimes the wire itself is referred to as a “blade”). One major advantage of wire saws is their smaller kerf, as compared to a blade. This method also produces very clean and precise cuts.

Wire sawing is a simple and efficient process for removing large portions of reinforced concrete, towers, bridges and steel structures. This method is often used in difficult conditions where the work space is narrow and confined.

The wire sawing technique utilizes a multi-strand wire-cable fitted with industrial diamonds and uses a system of adjustable pulleys to guide the wire through the concrete. As a non-explosive, non-destructive form of controlled demolition, wire sawing is a precise cutting method that leaves remaining structures safely intact. With their small footprint and remote operation, diamond wire saws eliminate disruption to surrounding areas while minimizing cost.


What Is Wire Sawing?

Wire sawing uses a continuous loop of diamond-embedded wire to cut through concrete, steel, or other tough materials. The wire is guided by a series of pulleys, allowing it to make straight or curved cuts. This method is ideal for large-scale concrete cutting projects, such as bridge demolition, structural modifications, and industrial installations.

A Versatile Method for Cutting Concrete

Wire sawing is especially effective for construction projects that require concrete sawing in a tight space or where larger machinery cannot fit. At Texas Cutting and Coring, we provide both continuous and oscillating wire saw options, depending on what each individual project demands. While the primary mechanism of a wire saw is, naturally, a wire (or kerf) instead of a blade, many users are unaware of the specific mechanics of the multi-strand wire-cable and adjustable pulley system that allows the wire to cut easily through the concrete. Wire sawing allows for extremely controlled demolition and ensures safety for the operating technician because of its ability to be operated outside of the immediate space of the user. This kind of saw can make cuts in various directions using wires of any size or length and ensures minimal surrounding damage at the construction site.

Since cable can be of virtually any length, cutting depth and width, modern wire sawing technology offers almost unlimited possibilities. For this reason, wire sawing is used where other cutting methods are impractical. Because wire sawing equipment can make cuts in any orientation and in any location, it is ideal for making clean circular openings through walls and floors.
