The use of diamond wire has been the standard industrial practice in excavation for over three decades, however only few researchers have devoted a systematic approach to understand, model and optimize this peculiar cutting process, and only in the case of granite. In addition to slabbing of stones, this technology is of interest for the construction and demolition industry. The typical configuration of diamond wire cutting in a quarry, with a cinematic scheme and the typical parameters are included in the paper. Experimental and theoretical models are examined and some initial results are also provided. Tests have been carried out on a special laboratory machine, developed within a national project, whose architecture is described.
