Firstly, what is a concrete cutter? A concrete cutter is a tool that is used to cut concrete. There are many types & process that can be used to get the job done. For example, you could be drilling holes, cutting pavers, cutting driveways, cutting retaining walls, cutting concrete steel mesh & so on.
Special tools and equipment are required to get the job done without creating any damage to the underground electrical conduits and other utilities that run through the concrete. Which is where concrete scanning comes into play.
That is why you should work with a professional and experienced concrete cutting provider when dealing with any type of concrete cutting project.
Here are the different types of concrete cutting tools we use.
This concrete cutting method is exclusively used for outdoor projects. The technique produces an enormous amount of dust in the cutting process. Adiamond blade cutter is used for these projects. The strength of the diamond helps protect the blade from overheating in the absence of water.
Dry cutting saws give out an enormous amount of dust, unlike wet cutting saws. Expect tiny flying concrete chips when cutting with a dry saw. That is why it is important that the professional cutting technician uses the right protective gear when using this method to cut concrete. The higher power of dry cutting tools is ideal for large-scale concrete jobs outdoors.
Wet sawing is a more safe technique of concrete cutting compared to the dry sawing method. It is characterised by dust reduction and the safety of the operator. The saw is cool due to the water. Hence, it is much easier to cut concrete using this method.
On the other hand, the wet sawing technique is more environmentally friendly compared to the dry sawing method. It won’t cause respiratory illnesses in the operators and bystanders similar to the dry sawing technique.
Wall sawing deals with cutting vertical concrete structures such as walls in a building. Wall saws are mostly used to create openings in a concrete building in order to include doors and windows in the building. the saw uses high-quality diamond blades that help obtain the minimum level of friction when cutting the vertical structure.
This type of cutting requires the services of a highly specialised and experienced technician. Hence, make sure that you hire the right concrete cutting service in Australia for such a project.
This method is used to cut holes into concrete payments, roads, decks, and bridges. In case you need awkward sizes and shapes to be cut in hard concrete surfaces, you should use this technique. The main benefit of this method is that it leaves the remaining concrete surface undisturbed.
There are a variety of machines used for this type of projects such as diesel, petrol, and 3-phase electric floor saws. Make sure that you work with a highly specialised concrete cutting service in Australia when dealing with this type of project.
This technique is most popularly used for small and medium-size concrete projects. This method is quite similar to chainsawing. It helps create holes in confined spaces with high precision. Ring saws are hand-held.
Hence, it is easier to use these tools in confined and hard to reach areas. They are used for precision cutting in order to prevent the concrete surface from being damaged or overcut.
A ring saw could easily cut through a hard surface such as granite, stone, glass, marble, and acrylic. Make sure that you work with a qualified and experienced concrete cutting service in Australia when dealing with such a project.
This method is used for creating highly accurate cuttings in steel and reinforced concrete. If you want to create different types of shapes in different sizes, you shouldn’t look further than the wire sawing technique. These tools use diamond embedded cables to do the job.
It minimises the wastage in the process. Wire sawing is an anti-vibration method for cutting concrete. Hence, it doesn’t create any cracks around the openings and cuts. But you should hire a specialised concrete cutting service for the project.
