What is diamond wire?
Diamond wire is a technology originally created for slicing very hard crystalline materials. It is the most common method today for slicing sapphire, one of the hardest materials, to make wafers for LED production. The standard wire is steel, with diamond particles electroplated on resulting in a total wire thickness of only 0.26mm.
Why diamond wire?
Using the Takatori TWR-300 and diamond wire brings significant benefits. The thin wire can cut without coolant, and even when cutting quickly it does little damage to the material, helping to preserve even very delicate structures. With little kerf loss you can also save material. Relative to more common technologies like milling, routing, and band saws, diamond wire is significantly cleaner.
