Core drilling is a specialized technique used in construction and engineering projects to create precise circular holes in a variety of materials. This drilling technique involves using a cylindrical drill bit, known as a core bit, to remove a cylindrical core of material from the targeted area.
Core drilling is commonly used in a wide range of applications, including:
Concrete drilling - Core drilling is often used to create openings in concrete structures, such as walls, floors and ceilings, for plumbing, electrical, or HVAC installations.
Concrete testing - Core drilling is used to extract samples from concrete structures for testing and analysis such as compressive strength.
Geological testing - Core drilling is used to extract core samples from rock formations for geological surveys and analysis.
Construction - Core drilling is used to create openings in various materials, including brick, stone, asphalt and metal, for a variety of construction applications.
