Wall and Wire Saw Updates

PDa’s Andrei Bushmarin reports on the latest innovations in the wall and wire sawing sector.
Eurodima wire sawing system excels
A Paris-based contractor was faced with the challenge of demolishing 38 reinforced concrete columns with an average cutting area of 57 ft (5.3m2). To accomplish this task, the company chose a wire sawing system from the Austrian manufacturer Eurodima. With a 31-hp (23kW) power rate and a mighty torque, the Eurodima system proved to be an ideal solution.
Combined with a high-quality diamond wire, even the toughest column was cut down with ease. The high-performance motorisation enabled fast and efficient cuts, thus significantly reducing the overall working time.
Another highlight of the Eurodima wire saw is its maintenance free pneumatic unit. This innovative technology ensured optimal wire tension throughout the cutting process. Thanks to the reliable tension, the cuts remained precise and uniform, without the need for additional adjustments. Apart from the technical capabilities, the system also impressed the user with its user friendliness, resulting in the successful and timely completion of the building’s renovation.
New feature on Pentruder wall saw
Since its launch in spring 2021, Pentruder’s RS2 compact wall saw has found many satisfied owners who, according to the Pentruder’s distributors, appreciate both the saw’s low weight and high performance. Last autumn, the Swedish manufacturer introduced a new “cutting depth indication” feature.
“All Pentruder machines are continuously updated to make everyday life of a concrete cutter easier and provide extra value says Kristoffer Johnsen at Tractive AB, a family business, which is behind the development and manufacture of all Pentruder equipment. “The first version of a machine must always be able to be updated to the latest one. We think this is real sustainability.”
Hilti offers cutting confidence
Hilti’s DSW 1510-CA wire saw is designed to deliver optimal cutting productivity for heavy duty applications. Operated via a wireless remote control, the DSW 1510-CA provides added operator safety and control, increasing productivity on the jobsite. The DSW 2005-TS wire conversion kit easily transforms the DST 20-CA wall saw into a portable wire saw. For small to medium-sized wire sawing projects, Hilti recommends using the DSW 2005-TS wire conversion kit with the DST 20-CA wall saw.
