A coring drill is heavy-duty machine that can drill through metal, concrete, block and stone. Handheld machines can drill holes for running electrical conduit and plumbing pipes through walls and floors. Low noise and relatively dust free drilling makes it the ideal choice for coring needs. Core drills come with a base and some of them are handheld for portability with both gas and electric options. Many major brands such as Milwaukee, Hilti, Dewalt, and Makita, Black and Decker manufacture some of the best drilling equipment for industrial projects for dry core drilling concrete.
Core drills are used when needing to core a hole in concrete slab after a pour or during a renovation. Drilling smaller holes in reinforced concrete, tile, masonry, or natural stone? Use a portable or hand held machine for concrete. For larger jobs consider a gas-powered or hydraulic coring drills that can be either bolted to the floor or used with a vacuum base to hold the core driller to the ground or on a wall. They are the perfect solution for coring holes between 2-20” diameters in concrete.
What Types of Drills are there?
Highly accurate drill holes in comparison to drill holes created by other methods.
Coring drills are faster since you are cutting out just the periphery of the hole and due to the lesser load these have longer service life.
Drill stands are ideal for drilling into concrete, bricks and building material.
Core drills can be used for wet and dry drilling.
Tips For Best Results For Coring Concrete:
Allow for the core bits to rest while coring to improve speeds and reduce burning. Water tanks help greatly when coring to ensure that your bits stay cool and at optimal temperature
