The effective use of a diamond core drill
March 10, 2020

A diamond core drill is a high-speed drilling tool commonly employed for use on concrete, stone, and masonry structures.

 

 

They provide safe, quiet, and rapid drilling without inflicting vibration damage to surrounding surfaces. Such core drills are also able to minimise spalling while eliminating fractures.

 

As a result, openings are left clean and straight without requiring patches or other cosmetic repairs, allowing the next stage in a project to be done without incurring delays.

 

 

Efficient drilling

You’ll often witness contractors utilising a diamond core drill to cut through rebar without effort, making it possible to place the holes wherever they are most suitable. Drilling of such nature allows for the creation of holes up to 60” in diameter, a crucial underpinning for electrical line, HVAC, and plumbing installations.

 

 

Mode of operation

Drilling accurate and precise holes like these are contingent on operating the drill bit as intended. When using a diamond core drill, always begin with a small hole cored by the shortest possible bit length (a word of caution, do not use a bit extension when creating a hole) while allowing it to go as close to the motor as possible. In a similar vein, if you are to be using a spacer plate for the first time, do not trust them to be preset. Moreover, always see to it that the drill bit be perfectly aligned with the center mark of the hole to be drilled open.

 

On a final note, the biggest challenge you may face when making a hole is in keeping the bit from chattering or wandering. To avoid this issue from causing you a headache, we recommend using a block of wood and holding it against the barrel of the bit while applying light pressure. If in doubt, always refer to the manufacturer’s manual or call customer service if you are still unclear.

The bored holes that our diamond core drill leaves are so clean and easy to do. I don't know how we managed before.
