This European Standard applies to diamond wire saws being used in quarries as well as in processing plants for cutting marble, granite and other stones out of a mass of rocks in a quarry or of blocks having been already extracted. The machines can be either stationary or travelling on rails during operation. Diamond wire saws in the scope have an electric main motor. This standard deals with machines working in one main axis as well as in several axes. Furthermore, this standard does not deal with problems caused by an irregular structure of the stones to be cut. Diamond wire saws are intended to be used with diamond cutting wires also referred to as tools in this standard. For transportable machines, this standard deals only with machines using coated wire tools.
