Core drills are used to create holes by utilising core drill barrels. Our core drills are able to produce holes up to 900mm. These drills are available as handheld units or stand mounted units. To drill efficiently, the drill motors need to spin at specific RPM ranges, drilling with a larger barrel at high speeds will not decrease the drill time, but it will glaze the drill bit segments. Always ensure that the gear selected is suitable for the core barrel.
When larger holes need to be drilled a stand is required to stabilise the drill during the cut. These stands must be secured by either an anchor bolt or a vacuum pump. These larger drills will require 15-amp or 3 phase power to be available. These drills are available in standard carbon brushed electric motors or Switch Reluctant motors.
Switch Reluctant (SR) Motors are novel high-performance motors that do not require carbon brushes to function. The SR motor is completely sealed which allows for inverted drilling without the need for water collection rings. The SR motors also incorporate an electronic gear box allowing for 18 different gears to be selected. This allows the drill to spin at the exact speed required for the cut.
