When the elements are cured and the cables are detensioned the elements can be cut to length using an appropriate cutting saw machine. The cutting saw machine moves along the bed and is positioned at the desired cutting point where the element will be cut using a diamond blade.
Cuts can be transversal, longitudinal or angular at any point along the element depending on the cutting machine used.
The time required to make a cut varies between 90-180 sec. depending on the type and height of the product.
During the cutting the blade is cooled by a jet of water either from an onboard tank or through a tube wound round a motorized cable reel and connected to a tap at the end of the bed.
