Whether it is a residential or a commercial project, in any kind of concrete structure – drilling operations are most suitable to create flawless results that are aesthetic, precise and of the highest quality. When diamond core drilling is utilized, with the help of tolls and saws, operators can make a round gasp on different surfaces whether horizontal or vertical. Employing concrete drilling is the only option if the project is demanding and requires high precision without causing any additional damage over a clean environment.
The core hole drilling process can be used for many different purposes, whenever we need to anchor something in the concrete or we need to undertake mechanical, electrical or even plumbing activity. After the task is finished and concrete cores are made, even then workers can apply pipes, warming or electric wires. Basically, the equipment needed for this kind of entrances is called a diamond core drill. Employing this kind of drill that has the shape of a cylinder allows us to cut precise holes with the desired depth. Besides, the drill bit is capable of removing the core of the cement hole when being created. Concrete as a very tough material can be cut in different sizes because we can apply different sizes of bits.
The basic diamond core drill is composed of: motor, spindle connection, locking switch, gearbox and handle. When drilling into concrete the most common models of diamond core you can choose from are hammer drills and rotary hammer. Conventional hammer drills are capable to produce high speed vibration and are mainly used with percussion carbide bits. Their drawback is the lack of capacity as they aren’t strong enough to hold up under repeated impact conditions. Rotary hammers are more efficient if you need to drill holes with larger diameter and are strong enough to hold up under repeated conditions. The size of the bit itself depends on the type of job that is required and how often it will be used. There are also diamond drills and carbide drills. Drilling with diamond drills is more complex but in most situations the depth of the drilling will determine what kind of equipment you are going to use. One thing you need to keep in mind when using the diamond drill tool is that you need to keep it cool because it may overheat and becomes useless due to the very high pressure.
Choosing the right bits can be very difficult sometimes. Taking the wrong drill will cut too small or even worse huge holes in the concrete surface and may create a lot of extra work to fix the mistakes. The best way to solve the problem and selecting the right equipment is to find someone who has already specialized in this field.
