Takatori Multi Wire Saws
Takatori is the world leader slicing challenging materials using diamond wire or abrasive slurry. GTI and Takatori worked together to develop the first applications to slice sapphire and silicon carbide using wire saws, and today Takatori saws are industry standards for both materials.From the beginning Takatori gave their machines a unique “rocking” function, improving slicing quality. Almost all of today’s Takatori saws still have this feature, and it opens the door not just to higher quality, but auto-winding, speeding up turn-around of the machine.GTI and Takatori have helped customers achieve lower costs and higher productivity slicing a wide variety of materials, including SiC, sapphire, GaN, glass, ceramics, GaAs, GaP, quartz, Si, and more.
Why wire sawing?
Diamond Wire Saws 3Takatori diamond wire saws are the industry standard for slicing sapphire and other advanced materials. Featuring high wire speeds and the original rocking head, Takatori diamond wire saws offer high-speed slicing of even the hardest materials with top notch quality.
Slurry Saws 5The 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.
ROCKING IMPROVES QUALITYTakatori 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.
Single Wire / R&D 3The WSD series of small wire saws brings 25 years of Takatori experience in production wire saws into your lab, R&D facility, university, or pilot production facility. The WSD series of machines are highly flexible, capable machines for slicing almost any material using diamond wire, either with a single wire or 5 to 10 wires.
