Diamond Drilling is a form of core drilling which uses a rotary drill with a diamond drill bit attached in order to create very precisely formed holes. As diamond is the hardest naturally occurring material in the world, it is ideal for creating openings in a range of materials including concrete, metal and glass.
A diamond drill is a precision instrument, creating clean, accurate holes with diameters of between 8mm to more than 1500mm. As it is a non-percussive technique, structural integrity is maintained around when drilling. Every diamond drill runs water through the driving shaft to ensure that the workspace remains free of dust. They can be operated in either a vertical or horizontal direction depending on the requirements.
