Diamond Core Drill Bits

Achieve Precise Core Holes with Diamond Core Drill Bits

Diamond core drill bits are specialised drilling tools designed to create clean, circular holes in hard and tough materials like concrete, brick, stone, and even reinforced concrete. Unlike standard drill bits, diamond core drill bits utilise industrial diamonds embedded in their cutting edge to effectively penetrate these challenging materials.

What are Diamond Core Drill Bits and How Do They Work?

Diamond core drill bits consist of a hollow steel tube with a diamond-impregnated outer ring that acts as the cutting edge. Here's a breakdown of their key components and functionality:

Diamond-Impregnated Outer Ring: Industrial diamonds, the hardest natural material, are embedded in the outer ring of the bit, providing exceptional cutting power for drilling through hard materials.

Hollow Steel Tube: This tube acts as the body of the core drill bit and allows for the removal of the drilled material core from the centre.

Water Feed Holes: Many diamond core drill bits feature water feed holes that allow for water to be delivered directly to the cutting edge during drilling. Water acts as a coolant, reducing heat buildup and extending the life of the bit.

Choosing the Right Diamond Core Drill Bit

Selecting the appropriate diamond core drill bit for your project requires considering a few key factors:

Material: Diamond core drill bits come in various configurations optimised for specific materials. Choose a bit designed for the material you'll be drilling, such as concrete, brick, or asphalt.

Diameter: Diamond core drill bits are available in a wide range of diameters to accommodate different hole size requirements. Select a bit with the desired diameter for your project.

Wet or Dry Drilling: Some diamond core drill bits are designed for wet drilling, where water is used as a coolant. Wet drilling is generally recommended for concrete and other hard materials to maximise bit life and minimise dust.

At Toolstop, we offer a comprehensive selection of diamond core drill bits from Abracs, available in numerous diameters to suit your core drilling needs. Explore our range to find the perfect drill bit for precise and efficient drilling in concrete, brick, stone, and more!
