Diamond drilling systems are comprised of a mounted rig, electric or hydraulic powered drill, and diamond bit. The diamond drill bit is cylindrical and hollow, consisting of a steel tube on which diamond segments are welded to the cutting edge. These make contact with the surface being drilled. During drilling, the diamond bit rotates. Water runs through the driving shaft to cool the face of the drill and keep it free from dust. Dry diamond core drilling services are available, please Contact Us to learn more. Diamond drilling systems usually include 110v powered motors, but can also be 415v, hydraulic and or air driven systems.
Factors that need to be considered during diamond drilling include:
- Type of material/surface to be cut
- Size & diameter of hole
- Structural resistance of the material
This will influence the equipment required to carry out the work. At Robore Cuts, we have over three decades of experience transforming the skyline of London and beyond, designing bespoke diamond drilling and concrete cutting solutions for our extensive client base.
