The Diamond Wire Saw with a Nonmetallic Core
Diamond wire saw is the leading technology for use in cutting hard brittle material. Its smaller kerf and faster cutting time make it replacing the conventional slurry technology for those materials. Turned over the traditional router, this paper presents a novel approach that replaces the typical metallic core with a nonmetallic core, for manufacturing of ultraviolet curing resin fixed-abrasive diamond wire saw (DWS). The experiments show that the diamond wire saw made by this manufacturing method can obtain a good performance as well as taking many other advantages.
