Diamond concrete core drilling is a high-speed, high-production method of drilling openings up to 60 inches in diameter in concrete, asphalt, stone, brick and other similar structures. Core drilling easily cuts clean, straight openings wherever suitable for plumbing, electrical and HVAC installations. Importantly, it minimizes spalling and eliminates fractures without transferring vibrations to the immediate surrounding structure.
Concrete core drilling is quiet, safe and efficient for cutting large horizontal slabs of green or uncured concrete, such as roadways, with a single downward motion. The core drilling equipment is broadly comprised of a cutting element, a drive pulley, an outboard pulley, and a foot structure; a drive motor; and a moveable support carriage. The cutting element is a closed loop of diamond wire entrained about the drive and outboard pulleys driven by the drive motor. The channel-shaped foot structure with two horizontally-extending flanges functions to minimize spalling or chipping during cutting. The moveable carriage supports the cutting head, and the motor on inboard and outboard rolling elements allows for movement over and along the concrete slab, and for lowering and raising the cutting element to engage and disengage the concrete slab during cutting.
