Stitch Drilling

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.

Lock Ladders

Dating back to the 1980’s, Condor’s diamond drilling engineers were among the first to perfect the system for installing lock ladders into the sides of the locks.

Ovington Bridge, County Durham

A two day project to stabilise this important bridge was undertaken by Condor Projects on behalf of Durham County Council using a specialist rig to reinforce the bridge with soil nails.

Oakdale Bridge
