Diamond core drilling, named after its diamond bit, is an efficient and accurate method of drilling a wide variety of hard materials—including, but not limited to, asphalt, masonry, and steel—without vibration. No vibration ensures that nearby structures aren't damaged in the drilling process. This dust-free, noise-free system makes diamond core drilling the technique of choice for environmentally-conscious contractors.
Why Diamond Core Drilling?
Diamond core drilling techniques are used when a precise circular penetration is needed. Holes up to 60" in diameter can be drilled to virtually any depth. Coring can be done in slabs and walls, on any angle. Electric or hydraulic drilling rigs can be used for drilling in sensitive locations or confined spaces.
Diamond Stich Drilling
Stitch drilling is a common technique used to make non-standard shaped and sized holes, when standard cutting equipment isn’t suited for the job. This technique is performed by coring a series of overlapping holes, allowing for one large segment to be removed. Stitch drilling is often the answer when dealing with relatively thick slabs or walls, or when the structural integrity of the purposed opening cannot be compromised.

Advantages of Diamond Core Drilling
Diamond core drilling is a cost-effective cutting technique that decreases both time to project completion and labor costs. Other advantages include:
No-to-low noise pollution
Precision cutting through nearly any kind of material, including concrete
