By analyzing the abrasive theory of concrete diamond sawblade, the proposal that the diamond should be selected by its function in cutting concrete is presented. The part of the big grit diamonds cut rock, and the part of the small grit diamonds improve the wearability of the matrix. The contrast tests are done with different shapes of sawbaldes in split segment, slant “U” slot segment, sandwich segment, turbo segment and three-slot segment. The special shapes of sawblades can improve the effect of cooling and the removing ability of the rock powder. The data of tests show that the efficiency of cutting and the life of sawblades are improved by designing the diamond prescription and using the especial geometry of segment.
