The Pioneer of Diamond Wire Sawing

Thirty-six years ago Bluegrass became the first demolition company to use diamond wire saws for controlled demolition.  Since then, our saws have been used in all major industries to cut an array of materials and objects, but primarily concrete and metal structures.  Cutting through anything from steel encased concrete and concrete retaining walls, to heavily reinforced rebar, Bluegrass saws and operators earned a reputation for consistently delivering a reliable and cost effective solution. 

This originally land base sawing technique would eventually see depths of 5000+ feet when we introduced our patented underwater diamond wire saw in the early 21st century. To this date there has not been a job we cannot do. 

What is Diamond Wire Sawing?Diagram of a diamond wire saw

A hydraulic motor drives the main wheel and which steadily pulls the diamond wire along the cut path. The diamond beads then do the work by utilizing the force of friction to cut through any material, from reinforced concrete to titanium.  Our experienced operators are skilled at watching for, immediately recognizing, and reacting to changes in hydraulic pressure on the power units with incremental adjustments for drops (wire not cutting) or rises (wire being pushed to its limit) to re-tension the wire.
