In core drilling, there is a need to have the right machine for the kind of core drilling that you need to do. Core drilling machines differ in sizes of the blades and of the drill. Also there will be a difference in shape as well. So when you are in need of a core drilling machine, make sure that you know all the details about the project that you will be doing so that you can get the right machine that is needed to do it. Not just that, there are also a lot of other things that you need to be keen about in order for the project to go smoothly and for the result to be what you expected.
Here are some of the tips on how to have a successful core drilling project.
1. Hire the right people.
Core drilling will at least need three people. These three people will be the guide, support and the actual manpower. These three have to work together in order for the project to be done right. The main person that will be handling the machine and do the core drilling process should be the most knowledgeable one among the three. This is because the accuracy and precision will rely on his hand work and the entire core drilling process will be his responsibility. So you should be able to hire the right people that will do the job. This is for you not to face a lot of hassled and troubles along the work and for the project to finish within the time table and how you have planned it.
2. Prepare the right machine to be used.
If you already have the right people for the job then it is time to take care of the machine. The machine should be what the project needs. You can’t use a blade that has larger or smaller circumference than the core that you are planning to drill. This is why there is a need for the machine to be right because the measurements will surely differ and there might be a problem that will occur after the core drilling process. So for security and assurance, always have the right machine and blade. Also make sure to have the right support for the machine so that it will be able to drill the hole without any problems on stability. The support should be stable enough and strong enough to hold the weight of the machine that you are using.
3. Wear protective gears.
Gloves, eye gear, boots and jackets should be worn when one is core drilling. This is because there will be a lot of small concrete flying around that could get to your eye. If this happens, your eye will be irritated or might get a worse injury. So for your own safety, you should ways wear eye gear. Sleeves and boots are also very important so that you will not feel as much pain when small particles of concrete will hit you. The sleeves of the jacket and the boots will protect you from getting hurt so make sure to wear it before you do a core drilling process.
