The WSD-K2 is the first small-scale wire saw from Takatori. Designed for R&D and limited pilot production, the WSD-K2 uses diamond wire to slice workpieces up to 156mm in diameter using 1 to 10 wires. The machine is popular for diamond wire process development, and is used for materials like sapphire, SiC, glass, and more. The physics department at the University of California Santa Barbara use the WSD-K2 to slice bulk crystals of GaN grown by Nobel prize-winning physicist Shuji Nakamura.
The standard down-cut multi wire saw from Takatori, the MWS-610SD has a maximum slicing diameter of 6”/150mm and a work length of 10”/270mm. The machine uses three work rollers, allowing larger pitches, and features Takatori’s unique rocking system and auto-winding. A rock-solid, industry proven machine for almost any material.
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.
