Plunge Sawing

When the backside of a cut cannot be directly accessed, Bluegrass configures a plunge saw to make the cut.

How Do Plunge Saws Work?

Plunge saws run a continuous wire loop through multi drive wheels. The technicians move the saws into position by first core drilling access holes. The saw drops into the holes, and the cut is made by pushing the wire down between the holes. This push cutting technology requires fewer set ups than commonly used methods, thereby increasing efficiency. A classic example is the Ruskin Dam job, where we used plunge saws to cut stairsteps up the slope of a hydroelectric dam.
