These are used in the Rolling Mill to cut profiles.

My doubt if the best term is Disc Saw, or disc grinder or other term.

Circular Saw

That's what you're looking for I think. It's a question of feeling comfortable with the phrase, you're right. Hope it fits:

Notes to answerer
Asker: Considering this is for steel industry, I believe disk grinder is the better answer. Circular saw would be used more in Civil constrution. http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.gmpeng.co.uk/images/Front%2520view%25202%2520(Small).JPG&imgrefurl=http://www.gmpeng.co.uk/for-sale.htm&usg=__EHTgPBCPgBD5LRJxp0rxaXTzP1k=&h=480&w=640&sz=76&hl=en&start=210&sig2=szVjIolMp1Crl-gV2R7AyA&tbnid=qP2XvGqUwTKV5M:&tbnh=153&tbnw=250&ei=ifVfTOvHN8P7lwe3peGZCA&prev=/images%3Fq%3Ddisc%2Bgrinder%26hl%3Den%26biw%3D1366%26bih%3D641%26gbv%3D2%26tbs%3Disch:10,5800&itbs=1&iact=hc&vpx=855&vpy=88&dur=9632&hovh=194&hovw=259&tx=85&ty=148&oei=2vFfTNWFE4GC8gbA35SzDQ&esq=21&page=12&ndsp=18&ved=1t:429,r:4,s:210&biw=1366&bih=641
