A Concrete Flooring Contractor? Here’s 5 Best Drilling Tips For You When the point is about core drilling, concrete flooring contractors have got several alternatives to choose from. They can either hire a testing lab to conduct concrete core strength test as well as for concrete sawing or hire a professional drilling services. And of course the DIY option is always there! No matter who performs core drilling, it is essential to have a well-defined core test program that recognize the perfect place in a slab or wall structure from where to extract cores and how to deal with cores once you take out them from the concrete. Below are some great tips for flooring contractors who go for DIY core drilling. Selecting a Drill Regardless if you rent or buy a drilling equipment, there are several things you must take into account. Typically for holes of up to 3inch diameter, a handheld core drill is used. As the minimum core size for the core strength test is 3.7 inch, you will need to use a rigmounted unit or a drilling stand. In case you are buying the equipment, make sure the model you choose has the flexibility to be useful in your other projects too, such as for the drilling of plumbing holes, dowel holes or for electrical wiring holes. There are many different sizes of rig-mounted units, hand-held units and intermediary units available out there that can be used either with a drilling stand or as a hand-held device. Browse the internet for concrete diamond drilling equipment; they are most widely used drilling equipment by contractors these days. Power You will find typically three options in any core drill motor – electric, air and hydraulic. You need to select the power option based on the power facilities and work environment at the construction site. Some models also let you choose the suitable speed in context to the concrete hardness and the hole size needed. Stand Attachment While drilling cores in concrete slabs, it is recommended to make use of a vacuum stand; the vacuum stand sticks to the floor with suction power without anchor holes. To the contrary, while drilling cores in a wall, you will need to fix the stand on the wall using anchor holes. For more safety, it is recommended to embrace a chain with drilling stand; so, in case the stand gets slipped from the holes, it won’t cause any harm to you.

Selecting the right diamond bit It is crucial to choose the right diamond bit for perfect core drilling. Take into account the hardness and psi of concrete while selecting the diamond core bit. Choose a softer diamond bit for comparatively harder surface and a harder diamond bit for softer surface or material. Depth Ideally, all standard concrete core samples can be drilled with a 1 foot diamond bond, but for deeper cores you can make use of barrel bits. Lastly, diamond concrete cutting and drilling is quite easy provided you have the basic skills and knowledge of using the equipment safely and effectively.
