Increasing the sawing speed provides the marble producer with an appreciable benefit resulting from reductions in energy and water consumption and operator costs. As an example the increase in speed from 11 to 16 m2/h can bring a benefit in the case of extraction of compact marble (reference: standard sawing cost = 100). To increase the wire sawing speed, we are working on the optimum combination of the best performing diamonds and the most suitable metallic bonds for a material type. This therefore updates solutions for each use.
