Diamond Drilling is a form of core drilling which uses a rotary drill with a diamond drill bit attached – producing precise holes. Diamond is the most rigid naturally occurring material in existence – meaning it is perfect for creating openings in a variety of materials. E.g.: Metal, glass and concrete.
A diamond drill is an accuracy tool. It creates neat and precise holes with diameters between 8mm to over 1500mm. It is a non-percussive practice; so, structure is preserved when drilling. Diamond drills run water through the driving shaft – keeping the surrounding work space dust-free. This is very useful when a clean environment is essential. The drills can be used in either a vertical or horizontal direction – depending on the work being carried out.
Diamond drills are principally used on concrete, but they are multipurpose tools that can be applied to nearly any material. For example, glass, metal, stone, tile and asphalt. The tool is utilised in any event where precise and accurate holes are needed. This includes big openings for ducts, smaller holes for pipes or wiring, creating holes for the placement of anchoring bolts, as well as concrete sample analysis. These holes can be created at virtually any angle to an almost unlimited depth.
Diamond Drilling is fast and virtually silent – it is the most environmentally acceptable method of creating holes in any material.
