Why choose diamond drilling?

Diamond drilling is being sought across multiple commercial sectors, thanks to its flexibility of application and ability to generate a broad range of opening sizes. The unique design of the drill bits means that instead of chipping the material, it grinds carefully in order to make a clean hole or opening.

Key benefits of diamond drilling are:

  • Clean and precise cutting
  • Less heat generation
  • Lightweight handling
  • Faster drilling speed
  • Less likelihood of chipping
  • Better quality of finish
  • No dust generated thanks to water suppression
  • Low noise output

In the hands of a professional diamond drilling company, this technique can achieve quality, long-lasting results for any size or scale of endeavour.
