DoALL diamond saws a cut above

As the demand for solar energy and electronics increases worldwide, innovative equipment and processes are key to increase productivity at lower costs.

Leading manufacturers of silicon wafers, the principal raw material used to produce solar panels and computer chips look to custom-manufacturers like DoALL Sawing Products to enhance the process.

“The solar and semiconductor industry have rigorous standards,” says DoALL Machine Tool Division Sales Manager Dave Snyder.  “Their production facilities are looking for rugged, high precision, vibration free saws that can cut extremely hard material like silicon, quartz and other friable material.”

DoALL Sawing Products, an 80-year manufacturer of rugged saws for diverse applications, recently custom-engineered a series of diamond saws for a silicon ingot production facility.

Ingots or boules, whether square or cylindrical, are extremely abrasive, brittle and expensive to produce.

The large three axis HDS-1350 saw; D-900 series with rotary or stationary tables; and entry level or economical model 2012-D12 are currently serving production facilities across the globe.

“There are very few diamond saw producers in the world because of the engineering demands,” says Snyder. “The design involved on this custom project was significant, but among the end result was a custom software solution instructing the blade to enter and exit the ingot slowly – reducing chipping and waste on this expensive material. That’s a big deal for the industry.”

DoALL diamond saws are the elite in sawing products. The blade, also manufactured by DoALL, contains diamond crystals to make them extra tough on demanding, raw materials. The machine has features that optimize the blade performance and withstand the demands in a high-production facility.  Diamond saws actually grind the material rather than cut it – the reason diamond saws are effective solutions to handle quartz, glass, carbide, Pyrex, carbon, graphite, gemstones and more.

DoALL saws accommodate versatile applications, meeting rigid demands in the renewable energy market among others.
