A core drill uses a hollow drill bit to cut into concrete, stone and other kinds of aggregate. The core is what comes out of the drill in cylinder form. The hole that is left behind is used to start new construction projects or other renovations. The surrounding area is left intact so there is no disruption which needs repairing once the drilling is complete.
Drills are powered by hydraulics, pneumatic systems or by electricity. The drills themselves are often made of diamond crystals and the cutting surfaces on the bits are made of carbide. Carbide may overheat so, to prevent this, a water cooling process keeps the bit cool while keeping dust from spraying outward when concrete is being cut.
When the process starts a stabilizing post is secured to the surface being cut. This is what supports the tool and allows it to be guided properly into place. The drill gets mounted to the post and is then outfitted with the proper bit.
Core drills get to a specific depth and angle in concrete and masonry. These tools cannot be used by anyone. Still, there are some builders and property managers that allow these core drills to be used without people holding the proper training and skills. This is a mistake because core drilling is a critical job that must be done properly for the rest of the construction project to be done to all specifications and standards required.
