All materials in bulk or multilayer form, very hard to soft, compact or porous and single-phased or multiphased can be sawn. Fine particle materials must be embedded before sawing.

The wire, vertically or horizontally, is driven back and forth to cut through the object by rubbing. The wire is loaded with an abrasive (generally diamond) on it. The penetration force is adjusted with a counterweight and enables the cutting of very fragile samples. The lubricant is to minimize mechanical damage and to ease waste disposal. In order to avoid mechanical damage, linear speed, abrasive and penetration force can be chosen.
