Nowadays, the most effective method for cutting concrete, bricks, floor slabs, reinforced concrete, tiles and other surfaces is diamond cutting. The quality and speed of cutting is the best way to find. The technology of diamond cutting is that a hard material acts on a softer one. For example, the knife can be sharpened with an abrasive wheel, the glass can be cut with a hot iron, and the paper with scissors. Diamond is the only mineral that can scratch and damage everything, because there is nothing firmer than it. It is clear that if you hit him hard with a hammer, he can split, as there is a difference between hardness and brittleness. A diamond is durable to pressure, but fragile "on impact." Therefore, the principle of diamond cutting is precisely the grinding of the surface.
Diamond cutting has been applied since the middle of the last century
Any construction process that meets modern advanced technology can not do without the use of high-tech tools. Thanks to them, you can solve any engineering and technical problems. A big breakthrough in the improvement of specialized tools for cutting reinforced concrete , asphalt, floors and concrete was the use of diamond spraying on cutting tools. Now with the help of such equipment you can easily, quickly and efficiently handle complex surfaces.
"But this is incredibly expensive, use diamonds in construction!" - you can say. Due to the fact that in 1954 an American company developed a technology for the production of artificial diamonds, diamond-coated tools began to be widely used. In Europe, this technique appeared in the early 60s, in Western countries. Such tools have gained high popularity due to the rare properties of diamonds, which were fixed on its surface with the help of a bundle, by sintering, pressing and electroplating. The performance and quality of the tools depends on the type of diamonds, their concentration, and the characteristics of the binder material.
Since structures made of concrete and reinforced concrete gained great popularity, the technology of diamond drilling greatly simplified the task of processing this material. Since previously, for these purposes, jackhammers and perforators were used, the unbearable noise and dust prevented normal operation and were life-threatening. Moreover, such work required a lot of effort. Thanks to diamond-coated tools, construction has moved to a new, higher level.
Diamond cutting is a process , in which the formation of holes and openings in various designs using tools with a diamond coating. These can be disks, crowns, chains, ropes, etc. As we have said, diamond is the hardest mineral. Therefore, due to its properties, it can easily cope with any surface in which it is necessary to make an opening, a hole, or it just needs to be cut off. And no matter how durable it is. If you need to cut or dismantle various parts of a building, cut off a slab, make a window and doorway, or cut a piece of glass, such a tool will cope with your task. It is noteworthy that the work does not use percussion and vibration instruments.
Cutting can take place in 2 modes:
Moreover, the cutting can be divided into 2 types: dry and using liquid. Since the cutting surface becomes very hot during friction, it needs to be cooled. If we talk about dry cutting, the plus can be called the fact that you do not need to look for water. The main disadvantage of this method is the formation of dust and tool wear, so you cannot use dry cutting indoors. That is why the method of using a liquid is much more efficient - when cutting, no dust is formed, and the equipment is constantly cooled, which prolongs the life.

Using diamond cutting is used for such purposes:
All this and more can be realized , thanks to diamond cutting technology.
Here are some advantages that make diamond cutting is so popular, simple and efficient:
Versatility of use
Without special Equipment can not be cut. It is with his help that all the work is done. Here are some of the tools and their brief description:
Electric handheld carver. This is a hand tool used for cutting surfaces in enclosed spaces that are not ventilated. Thanks to him, you can cut through the opening with a maximum depth of 125 mm on one side, and 250 mm, if there is access to both sides. It is possible to make cutting without dust when using water that is fed to the place of cut, as well as using a vacuum cleaner that sucks up all dust, preventing it from spreading. Apply this tool for cutting openings in residential areas when the use of a gas cutter is not possible.

Rope cutting machine
Thanks to the use of such equipment, the cutting process was simplified many times. Technology is simply necessary in construction work, since it allows to solve the most difficult tasks.
