Exterior Climbing Saw

Developed by: LISMAC and MB Spezialabbruch GmbH & Co. KG
Development timeframe: 2003

The exterior climbing saw is a 2003 development from LISMAC in collaboration with MB. This saw is a variant of the Wall Saw combined with a dropping device. It can be used to cut out larger pieces from the building structure of round and tall tower-like structures with a larger diameter and a wall thickness of up to 730 millimeters and drop them inward. The exterior climbing saw is placed on the wall panel and saws larger panels out of the structural element from the outside. The plates are then ejected inwards by a hydraulically driven arm. During this process, the machine continues to move downwards in a spiral, following the progress of the demolition.

Wire Saw
A wire saw is often used to process components with large cutting depths and to cut tubular structures to size.
MB Spezialabbruch - Milestones: Wall saw
Wall Saw
Saw blades with a diameter of up to 1,600 millimeters are used for the wall saw, which allows for cutting depths of up to 730 millimeters.
