Diamond drilling is the most effective non-percussive method of creating holes ranging from 10mm to over 1000mm diameter to depths up to 15m. Core drilling can be carried out vertically, horizontally, at an angle or inverted.
Diamond drilling consists of the use of an electric or hydraulic rotary drill motor mounted on a drill rig using a diamond tipped core bit to cut through reinforced concrete and other construction materials, such as masonry, brick and blockwork.
Drilling techniques are generally water flush to act as both coolant and to minimise dust, and for some applications, dry techniques are available with suitable dust extraction. The drilling process is fast, quiet and accurate, is virtually dust free and imparts negligible vibration to either the operative or the structure.
