This blog talks about Hilti’s range of diamond tools used in precision vibration free concrete cutting and sawing, whether you are looking for a hand-held saw for light-duty applications or large-scale saw to cut into an entire concrete structure.


As a contractor working on a construction site, you may sometimes need to make small or large openings in concrete. The depth of cut can vary from a 30mm deep slit required to 150mm slab cutting. Occasionally a requirement of cutting 300mm depth walls to complete removal of beams and columns is also undertaken. However, in all these cases, the one thing required is a clean cut with no damage to the adjacent structure.

Sometimes concrete cutting can get more challenging than usual, and ordinary instruments may just not cut it. You must use the tools that make your work easier. Since, wall sawing always involves a lot of preparation, it is still better to use the types of equipment that are convenient to transport and easy to assemble. Every detail needs to be carefully thought out and designed, to ensure simple assembly and efficient operation. Tools that are a part of a well-conceived system concept allow you to take on a greater variety of jobs with minimal equipment needed.

Doing this activity with Traditional methods of concrete breaking may take up a lot of time and effort with little results. In addition, the vibrations are transferred to the adjoining structure and there is lot of finishing work required after the breaking task.
