Core Drilling or Coring
Core drills are used for many applications, either where the core needs to be preserved (the drilling apparatus used in obtaining a core sample is often referred to as a corer), or where drilling can be done more rapidly since much less material needs to be removed than with a standard bit.
This is the reason that diamond-tipped core drills are commonly used in construction to create holes for pipes, manholes, and other large-diameter penetrations in concrete or stone. Core drilling offers a clean, accurate and fast way to drill holes.
This technique is used for a number of different applications including but not limited to electrical, plumbing, phone line, HVAC and fire prevention equipment.
When exact circular penetration is needed, Concrete Cutting Sydney skilled technicians use diamond core drilling techniques. We use coring for walls and slabs at any angle and any depth. For locations that are closed in or sensitive in which to work, electric or hydraulic rigs can be utilized to successfully complete the job.

What Does Core Drilling Do:
Core drilling is an indispensable, vibration free, method of forming clean holes in structural concrete and other building materials, with single holes varying in diameter from 10mm up to 1000mm.
This technique allows Concrete Cutting Sydney to drill smooth accurately positioned holes through reinforced concrete, brickwork and more. This method of drilling, as well as being accurate and suitable for almost any thickness of wall of floor, is convenient thanks to being dust free and producing minimal noise.
A core drill bit consists of a steel tube with diamond segments brazed or welded on the drilling end, and mounted on a rotating shaft. Core drill machines can be operated in either vertical or horizontal direction and can be powered by electric, hydraulic or air sources. Core drilling machines can also be used in confined spaces.
