Concrete cutting, also known as concrete sawing and drilling is the process of using a diamond tipped blade or core bit to cut or drill a solid surface most often representing concrete hence the reason it is commonly referred to as Concrete cutting.
Concrete core drilling (also known as concrete coring) is the mechanical process of drilling a precise circular hole in concrete structures such as walls and floors. It involves the use of a core bit attached to the end of a core drill to perform the cutting.
Hand held sawing refers to portable saws that are fitted with diamond tipped blades or chains such as hand saws, rings saws and chain saws. These saws are convenient for smaller jobs, where manoeuvrability and space is limited and the depth of cut required is moderate.
Road sawing, also known as floor sawing or slab sawing, is a concrete cutting technique used to cut horizontal flat surfaces such as concrete floors, roadways, runways, bridge decks, along with any other flat surface where a road saw can access and maneuver.
Diamond wire sawing represents a cutting procedure utilising metal cable or wire with synthetic diamonds embedded within beads that are attached at regular intervals along the wire to facilitate the cutting. These beads are approximately 11mm wide, slightly wider than the actual wire.
Wall sawing, also known as track sawing utilises a blade consisting of a circular steel core with segments containing synthetic diamonds laser welded to the outer edge of the steel core. This diamond blade is attached to a motor head which is mounted on tracks.
GPR Scanning also known as Ground Penetrating Radar, or slab scanning refers to the use of equipment that sends electromagnetic waves into the surface being scanned in order to identify variations within the materials which are then deciphered to determine what they represent.
Demolition robots such as the BROKK or the Husqvarna DXR are remote controlled machines that manoeuvre on rubber tracks, powered by 3 phase electricity and utilise hydraulics to drive the arms and legs. Capable of performing large scale crushing and breaking.
Concrete Bursting and Splitting breaks concrete and other similar materials by applying lateral forces against the concrete. Rather than shattering the material into pieces as impact tools would, the lateral forces build up to crack the material into smaller sections.
Concrete grinding is a great way to fix your concrete flooring imperfections, be it an uneven floor, cracking, chipping, peeling, crumbing, or just a poor concrete finish. Grinding concrete is the most affordable way to repair a damaged, uneven or unsightly concrete floor.
Concrete slurry waste is the bi-product generated when performing concrete cutting. It is the combination of the concrete that is separated during the concrete sawing and drilling process which combines with the water used during the concrete cutting process.
