Core Drilling

Core Drilling

If you need single holes drilling in concrete, with a smooth edge and pinpoint accuracy, then the best method for the job is diamond core drilling. The process can also be used to remove large areas of concrete whilst maintaining structural integrity.

To create rectangular or circular openings a technique called stitch drilling can also be employed using an overlapping series of holes pierced through the material. By mounting a drill column with a rotary motor and combining it with a diamond-tipped core bit, drilling holes in steel reinforced concrete, brickwork, stone or metal is easy, clean and vibration-free.

We can core drill holes ranging from 12mm in diameter up to 1,000mm using electric or hydraulic powered drilling rigs. Our operators can work with manual and remote operated rigs, with coolant control and collection where necessary.

To maximise health and safety procedures we make sure cores are held in place or supported from below when necessary to prevent hazards to personnel or equipment. Due to the minimal vibration of rig mounted diamond drills the operator and the structure are well protected.

We will be happy to discuss your job specification and demonstrate our expertise in diamond drilling by phone or e-mail.
