The “big brother” of the WSD-K2, increasing the maximum workpiece diameter to 200mm.
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.
Based on the proven design of the MWS-610SD, the MWS-612SD uses a simplified 2-spindle design to improve rigidity and increase slicing length to 12” / 300mm while sharing the 6” / 150mm max diameter.
Based on the popular MWS-612SD, this machine is designed for running diamond wire only, and is a popular choice for companies producing sapphire and other challenging materials.
