What is Concrete Coring?

If you are reading this blog, you are probably wondering what Concrete Coring is, how do you do it, and what is its overall purpose? In this blog, we answer all of those questions and more.

First thing is first, what is Concrete Coring?

Concrete Coring utilizes a Diamond cutting drill to cut a perfect round hole into any Concrete surface. It's low noise, dust-free, and non-percussive, making it a top-rated product for cutting Concrete as it can also be used to drill at any angle, horizontal or vertical.
Now how does it work?

How Concrete Coring works is the tool is made up of a diamond cutting edge end attached to a steel tube, and the rig, in most cases, is attached to a floor or other surface by an anchor, bolt, or vacuum to ensure stability. If you are coring into a wall, be sure to fasten it with anchors and not the vacuum. In the event of a power failure, your machine could fall off the wall and possible destroy the tool and cause some injury to anyone near by.

As the rig drills, the cutter is cooled by water to reduce friction and for longer blade life. When the cutting process is complete, you remove the slug leaving a perfectly circular hole.

What are the most common applications for concrete coring?

You will most commonly see Concrete Coring used in the fields of plumbing, electrical, drainage, and HVAC. Some more specifics examples of when you will use Concrete coring are;

Utility penetrations

Water pipes

Sewer lines
Air circulation

Phone lines

HVAC openings

Computer lines

Aggregated Analysis

Another use for Concrete Coring is taking samples of cores of poured Concrete to test if the strength of the Concrete is sufficient.

Can anyone do Concrete Coring?

No, Concrete Coring is not a D.I.Y project you can take up on a whim. A drilling expert must conduct concrete Coring. They will likely have all the tools required for the job anyways.
