Diamond drilling is a quiet, non-percussive way of forming holes and openings. The result is free from bursting and requires little or no reinstatement work.
Water and dust control attachments can be used to reduce spoil where a clean environment is being worked in. Diamond drilling provides precise holes through all types of base materials such as mass concrete, reinforced concrete, brick masonry, and block work. Our drilling size range is from 10 mm diameter for small anchor bolts and dowel bars to 550 mm diameter (single holes) for installing large diameter pipes.
Speed and Torque…Stitch drilling is a commonly used method of forming holes where the size or shape is abnormal. This method entails a series of holes to be drilled next to each other to form the opening. This method can also be used for holes over 1.0m diameter. Drill motors vary in size and can be attached to various types of rigs, all of which can be powered by various means: air, electric, petrol, or diesel. A common drill rig set-up would be a static column with an electric motor attached, mainly used for drilling cores up to 250mm diameter. Thereafter a hydraulic motor would be used as this provides the correct peripheral speed and torch, which is required for the larger diameter cores. Different attachments range from trailer mounted rigs, hand-held drill motors, twin column assemblies, and automated rigs, all of which are used and specified to suit all drilling environments. Having the right drill rig and set-up can be the difference between a successful and non-successful operation being carried out.
