Diamond wire saw - DWS.175

The diamond wire saw type DWS.175 is a table saw in vertical design.

The maximum workpiece cutting area is 175 x 175 mm and the recommended diamond wire thickness is 0.15 to 0.50 mm. The continuously adjustable wire speed goes from 0 to 4 m/s. To ensure a constant cutting pressure, the feed is done by gravity. Workpieces can be cut both wet and dry.

The DWS.175 is equipped with an operator-guided, ergonomically visible touch control. There is currently a choice of six languages (DE-EN-FR-ES-JP-CN). The industrial-grade drive and control technology ensures robust and precise operation. The built-in sensors for end of cut, open hood or, if necessary, wire breakage ensure safety. The precision saw is made of stainless steel and anodized aluminum.

On the slot table of the DWS.175 your workpieces can be fixed flexibly with our offered clamping devices, see accessories below.

  • accessories for this type


Tools holder

Art. WH.7

This tool holder, made of anodized aluminum, is used to hold various tools that are necessary for operating the saw and the clamping devices. For quick and orderly access, the tool holder is attached to the back of the diamond wire saw.

Signal light

Art. SL.3

This signal lamp indicates the operating status of the diamond wire saw with 3 colors (green-yellow-red). Since our saws can work without constant supervision, the signal light helps to inform the operator about the operating status over a greater distance.

Rotary unit

Art. DE.130

If you need cutting surfaces with minimum roughness and flatness, you can't do without the DE.130 turning unit. During the sawing process, the workpiece, which is held in a four-jaw chuck, rotates at the same time. The turning unit can be adjusted by hand in the X direction with an accuracy of 0.01 mm. A digital scale shows the current positions. Parts from 5 to 130 mm outside diameter can be clamped and separated with the turning unit. Even the smallest groove recesses can be produced with the DE.130. The unit is mounted on the grooving table. The speed is infinitely variable.

This side sample carrier is used for direct mounting of specimens or our various carrier discs (TS.X), onto which the smallest specimens can be glued. The SPT.30/80 can be used to clamp cylindrical specimens from 30 to 80 mm but also non-shaped specimens up to 90x90 mm. The side sample carrier is part of the standard equipment of the DWS.100. It is optionally available in conjunction with the SB.60 clamping block set and the SE.XXX clamping unit.

Mini vice

Art. MS.30

This mini vise is used to clamp the smallest specimens with a max. clamping width of 30 mm. The lateral specimen grips STP or frontal specimen grips FPT are used to hold the MS.30.

Micro vice

Art. MS-15

This micro vise is used to clamp the smallest specimens with a max. clamping width of 15 mm. The lateral specimen holder STP or frontal specimen holder FPT is used to hold the MS.15.

Frontal sample carrier
