Multi-wire saws with a diamond electrodeposited wire tool are widely used to slice hard and brittle materials. The properties of the materials significantly affect the saw’s performance in terms of slicing quality, efficiency, and accuracy. In this study, the effects of the material properties of workpieces on wire tool performance and tool wear are described. The main conclusions are as follows: the higher the hardness and toughness of the workpiece material, the longer the slicing time and greater the damage to the wire tool. The brittleness of the workpiece adversely affects the thickness variation more than its hardness. In addition, the frequency of chipping mainly depends on the hardness of the workpiece, whereas the chipping size mainly depends on the toughness of the workpiece.
