Wire Saw


 The precision endless wire saw is specially designed and equipped with a diamond wire to provide a very smooth cutting for almost all kinds of materials in the presence of an anti-corrosive cutting fluid. It can suitably be used to cut valuable, delicate, and fragile crystals such as SrTiO3, YVO4, and GaAs etc. It is equipped with a digital micrometer to allow the sample stage travel a horizontal distance up to 2” (50.8 mm) for precision cutting. The two axis goniometer also allows for sample stage rotation and tilting.
