General Equipment Co. introduces its Diam-A-Tach diamond segment grinding system designed to address specific surface grinding applications, including grinding small concrete irregularities, removing dirt or rubber tire build-up on industrial floors and removing a wide range of thin film coatings. Specially formulated diamond segments combine with the rotational speeds of surface grinders to maximize material removal. The circular shape allows segments to better ricochet off surface obstructions, thereby minimizing damage potential.

The Husqvarna Diagrip HG3 high-speed blade is designed for fast, smooth cutting of a wide variety of materials, especially heavily reinforced concrete. The Diagrip ring saw blades cut hard concrete, abrasive materials and some stone. The HG3 uses coarse diamonds that are larger than traditional diamonds for gentler, faster cutting. The diamonds are specially treated to ensure they are held in the segment longer, providing a smooth cut through hard and heavily reinforced concrete. The segment is specially designed to promote efficient cooling of the blade, which helps dispose of the slurry.

Arbortech introduces high-performance blades for harder, faster and longer cuts. The blades are available as aftermarket accessories in both the general purpose and plunge styles for its AS170 brick and mortar saw. The improved carbide formula and tooth design, and the higher temperature brazing allows for the blades to aggressively cut hard mortar while allowing the blades to stay sharper for a longer period of time.

Wacker Neuson offers a full line of diamond blades including split segment blades. The 12-inch- and 14-inch-diameter split segment blades are designed to offer versatility, fast cutting, longer life and lower vibrations. The key to the technology is the increased number of segments. By doubling the number of segments, the angle of contact to the material is reduced to provide faster cutting with lower vibrations. Additionally, there are more exit points for dust particles, keeping the blade cooler and ultimately increasing its usable life. The combination of a softer bond and increased air flow allows these blades to effectively work on almost any material on the jobsite.

Stone Construction Equipment
Stone Construction Equipment adds a diamond saw blade line to compliment its Saw Devil masonry and concrete saw lines. The new saw blade line covers the most common sizes for the majority of cutting applications. The 26 primarily general-purpose blades in the line fall into two categories — Saw-lect, the value line, and Saw-preme, the premium line. The laser-welded blades are designed to be well-balanced and flatter for faster, straighter cuts. The blades range in size from 12 to 20 inches, with bond ratings from 3 to 8, to cut brick, block, stone, cured concrete, green concrete, asphalt and asphalt over concrete.

The new abrasive blade from Norton makes it possible to use a single, high-speed cut-off wheel with a 1-inch or 20-mm arbor hole instead of two wheels with different arbor-hole sizes for heavy-duty, high-speed cutting. Three layers of full glass cloth add extra reinforcement and strength to make the blade last longer. The blade's heavy-duty bond with triple reinforcement is designed to resist side pressure and result in longer life. The new blade is available in 12-, 14- and 16-inch sizes.
