The sawing characteristics of a diamond circular blade with grits set in ordered distribution were investigated in comparison with a conventional blade on which grits are of random distribution. The two blades were tested under the same sawing conditions. Forces and power were monitored during sawing. The results indicate that the changing tendency of sawing forces and power versus sawing parameters are basically same for the two blades. However, the setting of grits in ordered distribution leads to lower sawing forces as well as force ratio, and can reduce nearly one third energy consumption.
