Core drilling is the process of cutting circular holes through concrete surfaces. Core drilling techniques are used when precise, circular cuts are needed in concrete. Holes of almost any diameter are easily drilled to make openings in the concrete for plumbing, electrical and HVAC installations.
Core drilling is also commonly used to create holes for routing cables or placing anchoring bolts, installing load carrying devices like dowel bars, or for analysis of structures, rock or strata.
The core drill can either be hand-held or mounted to the surface that will be drilled. The core drill can be used on concrete and many other surfaces.
Core drills can be operated in any orientation -- on the ground or floor, on a wall, in a ceiling, etc.
Holes can be drilled almost any size ranging from 3/8” to in excess of 60” in diameter and virtually any depth with tube and shaft extensions available.
