What is concrete cutting and coring?

So, depending on the type of projects you have worked on in the past, a few different things may come to mind when you think of concrete coring. In the world of drilling, concrete coring is the process of cutting or drilling concrete, whether in ceilings, walls or floors. And it is generally not used for DIY, such as drilling small holes in a wall for furniture or hangings. Concrete cutting is the kind of thing you'll want to work with a professional drilling company for, to save time and headaches and to make sure it's done right.

Concrete cutting is essential for the installation of many services, as well as for demolition and associated activities. Core drilling is mechanically anchored to a wall or can be vacuumed into a smooth concrete floor. Another use of concrete core drilling is to take sample cores of the poured concrete so that quality control companies can check its strength. The open end of a diamond core bit allows a solid cylinder of rock or concrete to move up through the bit to be extracted from the hole.

One of the reasons diamond saws are popular is that they can also cut other materials, such as rebar, which is often part of reinforced concrete. Concrete walls are cut with track-mounted circular blades that allow the equipment to climb the walls. Large-scale commercial concrete cutting is often done with wire saws where wires with tiny diamond segments replace the circular saws of standard concrete cutters. We operate the latest in diamond core drilling and GPR scanning technology to ensure that all cuts and openings are made safely and efficiently to maintain structural integrity.

If you hire a concrete cutting company to do a project for you, make sure they use modernised techniques. For the most part, wet core drilling is most commonly used for its efficiency and ability to drive the drill bit faster through concrete structures than traditional drill bits. In the past, concrete cutting companies used pneumatic hammers to break concrete, but that method left everything dusty and dirty. It is rare to find someone or a resource that can answer all the questions about concrete coring, especially in Australia.
