A Comparative Study of Stone Sawing with Thin and Normal Blades


Article Preview

In this paper, an experimental study was conducted to compare the sawing of granite with thin and normal blades. The power drawn by the spindle and horizontal and vertical forces were measured. The width of sawing slot on the granite was examined after sawing. For both blades, power and forces increase with the depth of cut. The width of sawing slots for the thin blade was about 75% of the normal blade. The width of sawing slots for either thin or normal blade sawing became narrower in larger depth of cut.
