The use of heavy-duty diamond saw blades allows for efficient precision when cutting through some of the hardest construction materials known, such as stone, concrete, and steel. With so many tools, brands and companies offering heavy-duty diamond saw blades, it is essential to understand the process in which they are made and how they work.
This quick guide, created by the team of experts at Hydro Construction Products, contains key details about the design, manufacture, and distribution of Hydro’s precision-cutting diamond saw blades and tools.
How are Heavy-Duty Diamond Saw Blades and Core Drill Bits Made?
Heavy-duty diamond saw blades are composed of two vital parts: the steel core and segment.
Steel core provides the support for the entirety of the diamond tool, including the outer segments of the diamond saw blade, while the segment is responsible for the cutting part. Diamond crystals can be attached in the steel core through vacuum brazing, sintering, or laser welding.
Among the three attachments methods, the laser welding is the one that yield the strongest core bondage. It is suitable to use for wet cutting harder material like stone, concrete, and steel.
The heavy-duty diamond saw blades attached using laser welding appear to be thicker, heat-treated, and tensioned. These properties contribute to precision grinding and minimised surface drag. On the other hand, vacuum brazing or sintering is ideal for dry cutting soft construction materials like asphalt.
The diamond crystals used in the manufacture of diamond saw blades are all synthetic. This allows the development team greater control over the size, shape, and strength of the diamonds. In addition, the team is also able to closely monitor accurate prediction of cutting speed (Revolutions Per Minute or RPMs).
The bonding matrix is also important since it is the component which holds the diamond crystals in place. There are two types of bonding matrix: the soft bond, which is ideal for cutting very hard, abrasive materials like porcelain and concrete; and hard bond, which is suitable for cutting soft materials like asphalt and freshly poured concrete.
How do Diamond Saw Blades Operate?
Heavy-duty diamond saw blades work by grinding the material by friction. This grinding process exposes new sharp diamonds as the tool runs through the surface and grinds it into a fine powder.
