Diamond stitch drilling
Building professionals, in years gone by, had to do a lot of manual work due to the lack of advanced tools and equipment. Today, construction professionals have started accepting and implementing a wide range of advanced techniques and tools. As a result, construction work has become a lot more convenient and easier.
One of these techniques is diamond stitch drilling, introduced to overcome the limitations of diamond drilling.
Usually, drill bits come in a size no bigger than 1,500 mm. Therefore, it becomes difficult to drill large holes in the hard materials with drill bits. With the introduction of diamond stitch drilling, construction professionals have successfully overcome this limitation. If you are planning to work on a construction project, you can hire diamond stitch drilling services.
Using this technique, the operator can create several overlapping holes on the given structure to get the kind of opening they want. Diamond stitch drilling allows operators to drill holes of various sizes and shapes in concrete, metal, masonry and so on.
It can also help keeping the environment, noise and dust-free, with limited waste. Therefore, workers get a clean environment, avoiding breathing problems like asthma and so on. This is ideal sensitive buildings or for confined spaces.
