Diamond Drilling

This particular drilling technique is used when precise circular cuts are required, as holes any diameter can easily be drilled to create openings. It is commonly used to create the holes for routing cables or for placing anchor bolts, for installing load carrying devices or for concrete sample analysis.

 

STITCH DRILLING

Stitch Drilling is a technological innovation which has a number of advantages over conventional drilling. By using a diamond drill bit it is possible to drill holes faster, more accurately and through a wider range of materials.

 

FLOOR SAWING

Floor sawing is a heavy duty yet quick and efficient way of cutting widths and depths up to 675m. C.D.S carries out concrete and asphalt cutting for motorway construction, pavements, traffic detector channels, drainage ducts and removing or altering concrete slabs.

 

TRACK SAWING

The high frequency track saw has an electric power unit which is operated by remote control away from the surface being worked upon.  The cutting is carried out by making a series of passes along the length being cut at progressive depths until the desired cut is achieved.

 

 

WIRE SAWING

The method of setting up is similar to that of the track saw but in lieu of the saw blade a grooved pulley wheel of 800mm diameter is fitted which takes the diamond wire. This wire is passed over any number of small idler pulleys to the surface being cut. The wire is a steel core of strands approx. 6m. dia. of almost any length. It has diamond beads along the length approximately 30mm apart and 10mm dia. The beads are separated by small springs, plastic or rubber.

 

 

HAND SAWING

Hand cutting has a limitless amount of applications from chasing to large structure removals with no disturbance to adjoining buildings. This method of drilling eradicates the need to stitch drill i.e. a series of interlocking holes.

 

CHAIN SAWING

Chain saws can cut up to 1m deep through brick, granite, concrete, heavy duty steel reinforcement bars and breeze block. Ideal for cutting straight lines where clean corners are needed and over-cutting is to be avoided. The hand-held saws are quick and efficient to operate, and are useful for working in confined spaces.

 

ROTARY DRILLING

 

Rotary Drills allow holes to be drilled for fixings, starter bars and anchors achieving high levels of output in a variety of applications and situations without exposing the operator to the dangers of hand arm vibration syndrome.

 

ROCK DRILLING

A rock drill is a drilling device designed specifically for penetrating rock, for use in activities like digging wells, preparing foundations, and mineral exploration. A number of companies manufacture rock drills, often offering a lineup of several models to meet various needs. This equipment tends to be expensive and special training is required to use it. Drills can be leased, and operators can be hired by companies that do not have a full time need for a rock drill and operator.

Drilling through rock presents a challenge because the substrate is very hard. Ordinary drills can be damaged quickly. Rock drills feature especially hard bits made with materials like industrial diamonds, along with lubrication and cooling systems to limit stress caused by friction. The drill can also use an air blower to clear out the drilling hole as the drill penetrates, limiting damage to the drill caused by rock dust and other particulate materials.
