It is important to understand the working of your concrete saw blade, as it will help you choose the right blade in accordance with your needs. The concrete saw blade (generally diamond blades) have the following characteristic to which makes them efficient:
The exposed diamonds on the surface of each segment perform the cutting to slice through the concrete (or other material) with the blade rotating at a high speed. As the diamonds at the surface turn dull through use, the matrix begins to shed away to release the worn diamond crystals. This exposes new, sharp diamonds embedded within the matrix.
Different types of concrete cutting saws have different purposes. It is essential to understand what your needs are to choose the ideal saw. Here are some of the common types of concrete saws:
Chainsaws are among the most common concrete saws available today. Due to their hydraulic systems, these saws will provide you with unrivalled precision. This sort of saw, however, should not be used to cut lines and angles in concrete.
Handsaws come in a variety of sizes and forms. They can assist you in completing the concrete cutting process faster. This tool may be used to cut through brickwork and other stonework.
Wire saws make it possible to work with a big volume of concrete at the same time. When dealing with pillars, foundations and depths beneath the concrete surface, wire saws are suitable.
When you need to cut through concrete, core drills come in handy. Core drills are excellent for projects that require cutting one inch or up to five feet deep into the concrete.
If you are a professional and want a more technical tool to work with, using a diamond saw would be the right option for you.
Here’s how concrete saws can be used efficiently:
Diamond saw blades are one of the leading blades for making clean and professional cuts through concrete. However, choosing the right concrete saw blades can be tricky, as you need to ensure their optimal efficiency.
You can go through a list of factors that we have put together so that you can make the right choice.
Our expert team have curated a list of potential problems that you can encounter with your concrete saw blades. Some of the problems we are experienced at fixing include:
The segments on a concrete saw can wear down because there is not enough water on one side of the blade and the blade could also be poorly aligned. Bring your concrete saw blade to our Scarborough shop and we can verify the alignment, clean the water system, and make sure that the pump is working properly and distributing water evenly to both sides of the blade.
When the flanges on your saw are worn out, they will not effectively support the blade and it will slip. Let us know if the flanges on your saw aren’t functioning properly and our skilled technicians will replace them.
Overheated Diamond Blade
An overheated blade can happen because not enough coolant is reaching the blade. At Bomba Diamond Tools, we can check the water system to ensure it is running properly, and unclog the nozzles if need be so that enough water will reach the blade.
If the diamond segments are worn out on your blade, bring them to us and we can replace or repair the segments. A laser-welded blade with 10mm segments has about 9mm of segment height that is useful, and it should be discarded once the laser-welding pad is reached.
When the segments on your saw are becoming smooth, this is because the bond is too hard for the material that is being cut into. Come into our shop and we can help find the right blade that you need for cutting through certain materials. We can also safely re-sharpen the segments on your blade to make them rough and ready to use again.
Saw Blade Wearing Down
A worn shaft or worn bearings can wear your saw blade down quickly. Damaged or dirty flanges, as well as an orifice on the blade’s arbour being bigger than the shaft, can also wear down your blade. Bring your saw blade to Bomba Diamond Tools and we can replace the shaft or the bearings, and also take a look at the flanges and repair them if they are damaged.
