For the dry dismantling and segmentation of dedicated components within the reactor pressure vessel (RPV) of the Karlsruhe Multi Purpose Research Reactor (MZFR) a bandsaw has been applied. The general decommissioning concept for the MZFR as well as constructional details of the bandsaw itself and the experience gained so far during the segmentation of the RPV closure head and the upper spacer are given with the present paper.
