When it comes to generating precise cuts in substantially bolstered concrete and masonry infrastructures, track sawing concrete is a process that is both speedy and efficient. Track sawing concrete can be employed for a broad range of tasks, including but not limited to sawing through ramps, doors, windows, and vent openings, as well as producing angled cuts. In some cutting operations, such as demolition division cutting, track saws might also be suitable.
When compared to other concrete saws, such as wire sawing and stitch drilling, track sawing concrete is distinguished by its high degree of precision and smoothness of cut.
Track saws have a cutter head that is either hydraulic or electrical, and it is installed on a track that is attached to the component of the structure that is being cut. During the cutting process, the head goes along the track while being propelled by either an electric or hydraulic unit. A guard protects the blade during this time. The blade of the saw can be adjusted to the desired cutting depth by lowering the saw. The fact that track sawing concrete can be controlled remotely increases both their safety and their accuracy. In addition to their adaptability, track saws come in a broad variety of types, allowing them to tackle a diverse selection of cutting tasks.
How is Track Sawing Concrete Employed?
Track sawing concrete is extremely helpful, particularly when it comes to the demolition of specific parts rather than the entirety of a wall or floor structure. This service makes use of either a hydraulic or three-phase electric saw, with the head of the saw being fixed on a track system that is subsequently secured to the material that is being cut. After that, the head moves along the track, which is driven by either an electrical unit or a hydraulic unit, depending on the configuration. The saw is then thrust into the concrete in a sequence of strokes while the Track Sawing procedure is being carried out. This continues until the minimum depth of up to 750 mm has been attained.
Why Should Track Sawing Concrete be Employed?
Although track sawing concrete is most commonly utilised for the purpose of cutting cement or brick/block walls, these saws can also be placed to use on cement slab and any other smooth surfaces where floor sawing may not be a viable option because of a shortage of space to securely manoeuvre a floor saw or inadequate ventilation that is needed when making use of traditional floor sawing machinery. By placing the track at an inclination and running it up the stair steps, it is also feasible to decrease the width of stairs using diamond track sawing.
Because track sawing concrete method employs a stationary trail upon which the sawing motor is placed, the resulting slices are exactly straight, smooth, and clean—attributes that cannot be achieved with any other technique of cutting concrete.
The track saw is an extremely safe device in both its handling and its use. Because it is controlled by a portable handheld panel, the operator is allowed to stay at a fair distance away from the track saw, so removing any potential dangers posed by flying debris and the like. When track sawing concrete, the saw will always have a blade guard attached to it to further decrease the likelihood of injury.
While the track saw is cutting through large sections of concrete to make rectangular apertures, it is possible that extra cuts will need to be formed in order to completely isolating a part of concrete that is to be removed. This, however, can be averted if it proves to be required by drilling holes with a diamond core drill in each edge to entirely disengage the section that is to be removed.
As is the case with the vast majority of approaches to cutting diamonds, a steady stream of water is fed into the blade as it rotates. This serves two purposes: it keeps the diamond pieces cool and prevents the formation of dust. The slurry that is ultimately formed as a result of sawing can be kept using wet vacuums, which will result in a finish that is clean and uncluttered. The addition of water helps prevent the diamond blade from layering over, which is another potential danger. This happens when the metal adhesive of a diamond segment closes over the revealed diamond that is contained within the section due to the component being overheated. When the diamond is covered in this manner, the pace at which concrete is cut is slowed down considerably.
The following are some advantages of track sawing concrete:
- Excellent for cutting openings in walls, entrances, and windows, as well as lowering wall heights and creating spaces for elevator shafts.
- Wall sawing is a potential alternative that can be used in situations where there is limited working area.
- It is possible to cut to a depth of one thousand millimetres.
- Utilizing a remote control from a secure distance
- Electrically operated on three phases, with no emissions of gases or fumes.
At Advance Cutting, we provide concrete wall cutting services, which are frequently used to saw concrete flooring and walls for a broad range of purposes. Included in this are new skylights, ventilation duct apertures, doorways, and decreasing the elevation of the foundation wall.
Because of recent advancements in mountings, it is now possible to cut at angles of up to 45 degrees. Cutting concrete using a track saw is a well-known method for cutting expenses associated with demolition services and building work.
