Diamond Core Drilling
Diamond core drilling is a unique type of drilling that uses a rotary drilling non percussive method of drilling, the drilling systems usually include 110v powered motors, but can be 415v, hydraulic and or air driven systems.
Diamond drilling uses drill bits made of industrial diamonds. The bits are designed to penetrate the hardest surfaces, cutting through reinforced concrete, masonry, tile and stone to asphalt, its non-percussive cutting processes maintains buildings structural integrity, at low sound frequency’s, Diamond drilling creates clean and accurate holes measuring between 10mm and 1500mm in diameter and can drill virtually any depth.
To understand how diamond drilling is carried out, it is important to look at the components of a diamond drilling system i.e. the mounted rig, the electric or hydraulic powered drill, and diamond bit. The rotary drill motor powers the diamond drilling system which is secured to the surface it is cutting by being mounted on a rig, then fitted with the appropriate size diamond drill.
A diamond bit is a cylindrical tool with an open centre section. The diamond drill bit comprises of a steel tube, with diamond segments welded to the cutting face which make contact with the surface being drilled. During drilling, the diamond bit rotates. Water is used to both cool the face of the drill and flush away the material being cut. The pressure and rotary speed of the drill bit as well as the water circulation are adjusted depending on factors like; the drilling conditions and type of surface being drilled. To carry out diamond drilling effectively, a number of factors have to be considered. They include; the type of material and surface being drilled, size and diameter of the hole being drilled, structural resistance of the material being cut and the matching suitable diamond compounds to carry out the works efficiently, However, MTF will always come up with a solution around these factors if required.

Latest Technology and State of The Art Machinery
We use the latest state of the art diamond drilling equipment.
Diamond drilling is far cheaper than conventional drilling methods. The method guarantees structural stability which eliminates the need for costly repairs and reinforcements to structures compared to traditional drilling and breaking methods. Diamond drilling also saves on labour costs.
A key factor as to why diamond core drilling stands out is because the method produces minimal vibration. Unlike conventional drilling techniques, diamond drilling doesn’t compromise the stability of the structure.
Due to the use of water as a coolant minimal dust is produced when diamond core drilling is performed.
Diamond core drilling also produces very little noise. The method is therefore ideal for applications where noise pollution is a concern i.e. in occupied buildings, residential areas, hospitals, schools and office buildings etc.
Ideal for Restricted Spaces
Diamond core drilling can be carried out using automatic feed systems, making it the best option for working within confined space environments
Ideal for Underwater Drilling Applications
Hydraulic or air powered systems mean that Diamond core drilling can be carried out underwater unlike most drilling methods. The drilling method is, therefore, limitless in terms of applications
