Development of Endless Diamond Wire Saw and Sawing Experiments
The endless diamond wire saw was developed using complex electroplating method. The sawing process on granite was experimented. The effects of diamond grain size, feed load, wire speed, and granite properties on sawing process were investigated. It is proved that the edges of sawing slot of granite were regulative and the cutting surfaces were smooth. The cutting efficiency could be improved by increasing the diamond grain size, wire speed, and feed load. However the increase of the feed load would induce higher tangential cutting force, and the case of the effect of wire speed was reversed.
