We investigate the power of a ripping head in the process of concrete cutting. Using nonlinear embedding methods we study the corresponding time series obtained during the cutting process. The calculated maximal Lyapunov exponent indicates the exponential divergence typical for chaotic or stochastic systems. The recurrence plots technique has been used to get nonlinear process statistics for identification and description of nonlinear dynamics, lying behind the cutting process.
