Brand new Concrete Slot Drain cutting system has potential to transform industry

Thursday, April 12th, 2018

Dymatec and Extrudakerb have joined forces to develop a brand-new cutting system that safely and efficiently cuts sections of Slipform Concrete Slot Drain that are removed to facilitate follow on process.

Dymatec, which manufactures and supplies diamond drilling and concrete cutting machinery and consumables, has co-engineered a brand new bespoke Wire Saw with Extrudakerb, specialists in the design and construction of Slipform concrete products.

Working together, both Dymatec and Extrudakerb have developed a unique system using Dymatec’s 110v Wire Saw, which significantly reduces cutting time per cut compared to conventional methods. Extrudakerb have designed and manufactured all the framework, pulley system and a new clamping mechanism, which coupled to Dymatec’s 110v Wire Saw makes this machine unique in the concrete cutting world.

The new system automates the previous manual process, which involved operators cutting slot drains 700mm x 700mm by hand using a diamond chainsaw. Due to the nature of the activity, this process carried risk to the operator, and limited the time the operator could spend cutting due to hand arm vibration.

As well as limitations in terms of time and safety, the process was also expensive due to the high cost of the diamond chain and the frequency at which they would need to be replaced.

Dymatec and Extrudakerb’s brand new system can be used with no down time, considerably shortening the time to cut the concrete slot drains, whilst providing a perfect perpendicular cut every time.

The new system is such a success, that Extrudakerb has built a total of three bespoke machines, all designed to work with Dymatec’s unique Wire Saw, with the two companies committing to a long-term agreement to continue employing their new system on future projects.

Jeremy Newton, Managing Director of Dymatec, said: “This bespoke new system developed by Dymatec and Extrudakerb is a breakthrough in Concrete slot drain cutting with significant potential to transform the industry.

“The advantages are huge; cutting time has been reduced and the automated process means that extrusion can be ongoing, without the need for exposure breaks, when compared to an equivalent manual operation such as concrete chain saw cutting. I am extremely proud of Dymatec’s dedicated team, particularly our Sales Manager David Hibbert, who has worked tirelessly with Extrudakerb to develop our brand-new Wire Saw which has completely revolutionized this process.

“Dymatec is delighted to be working with Extrudakerb on an ongoing basis and we look forward to further developing the system and improving efficiencies in slot drain cutting.”

James Charlesworth, Managing Director of Extrudakerb, said: “We have seen phenomenal results using our new system developed in conjunction with Dymatec. To reduce cutting time, coupled with the obvious Health and Safety benefits, is an extraordinary achievement which is dramatically reducing the time spent on projects. When Dymatec approached us with their new bespoke Wire Saw technology we set to work developing a machine that would eventually eradicate the need for costly diamond chainsaws and make the whole process more safe, fast and efficient.

“We firmly believe this has the potential to revolutionize the concrete slot drain cutting industry, and we are liaising closely with the relevant authorities with a view to rolling out the machines nationwide.”

Dymatec and Extrudakerb’s system is currently being used as part of a 44000m slipform concrete slot drain Highways England (Kier) project on the M6, junctions 16-19. The scheme currently has 3 Wire Saws in operation with plans to utilize the machines on all of Extrudakerb’s concrete slot drain projects.

Stephen Lee Group Lean Manager for Extrudakerb said, in summary the level of innovation achieved by both Dymatec and Extrudakerb has given the concrete cutting world a better quality and efficient option that ensures the safety of the people undertaking the process, This effort will continue to strive for market leading excellence.
