The original wire saws, Takatori multi-sire slurry saws are used for slicing a wide variety of challenging, valuable material. Reduce kerf lose and sub-surface damage and improve yields. Takatori slurry saws are the industry standard for slicing monocrystalline SiC, and are used all over the world to slice glass, ceramics, III-Vs, and more.



Takatori wire saws are built from the ground up to rock the wire. This improves the geometry and surface finish of sliced wafers, reducing post-processing and saving valuable material.

  • MWS-34SN

    The latest generation of the original Takatori wire saw, the MWS-34SN brings multi-wire slicing to smaller diameter materials up to 3” / 80mm in diameter and 4” / 105mm in length. Compact in size and quiet in operation, the MWS-34SN features a simple two-spindle design, Takatori’s unique rocking system, and an advanced servo-controlled tensioning system.
