works closely with the solar and silicone chip industries. The tools used here must be exactly right for the application. This includes the new band saws for cutting silicone blocks and the new 12” ingots. The saw has bronze instead of the previously used galvanic bonding. This makes it possible to make precise adjustments to the specification of diamond concentration and grit size. The band saw can attain even higher levels of performance and the result is more cost effective and higher quality cutting.
