Common Use Scenarios for Diamond Drilling
Diamond drilling is a fantastic tool for making very precise, deep holes in very hard materials, and as it is a non-percussive method of cutting, diamond drilling is used far and wide for very quiet, mess-free drilling. Here we have some of the most common use scenarios for diamond drilling.
Creating support frames
Diamond drilling is the perfect way to add support frames to a building under construction. Diamond drilling doesn’t vibrate the way other methods of concrete cutting do, which means that holes can be made to allow supporting frames to be installed in very unstable constructions without worrying that dynamic slamming will cause more damage to the structure.
Installing wires and pipes
Installing wiring or piping to a construction needn’t be a big task – diamond drilling allows incisions as small as 0.75 mm to be made, which means that adding wiring to a building after construction doesn’t have to take up a lot of time or cause a lot of disruption to a structure.
Adding windows and doors
Normally, adding a window or a door to a structure would mean messy demolition work and dust everywhere, but with diamond drilling, the hole can be cut with minimal mess and disruption, and to the exact measurements required. The whole process will be quick and mess free.
Diamond drilling is the only reliable method of cutting glass, with the precision and strength of the drill bit providing the perfect method of incision without causing the glass to crack.
Diamond drilling offers a reliable and quick way of removing large concrete structures such as pillars, allowing for very precise cuts up to 5 metres deep and breaking up the structure quickly and
Working in areas with restricted access
Diamond drilling is the best option for working in areas with restricted access as the equipment can be used horizontally, vertically and at any odd angle, and once the equipment is setup it doesn’t require manual operation , so there’s no chance of too many workers being in the area and making the space difficult to work in.
Other benefits of concrete drilling
- Quiet, so ideal for places with noise restrictions
- Requires very little energy
- Doesn’t vibrate, so less chance of workers developing vibration-related injuries
- Doesn’t require manual operation, making a safer work environment
- Less risk of damage occurring to structures
- Very quick, so great for jobs with a strict deadline
- Works on very hard, durable materials
