You don’t know what kind of hidden rebar—might stand in your way. You just know that you want to get to the other side of a concrete wall, floor, or barrier as quickly as you can. Of course, you also know how costly and time-consuming unexpected jamming of core drills can be.

For these reasons and more, our engineers have developed options that can help you improve productivity and cut back on downtime.

Match the demands of your base materials with core drills that can adapt gearing and speed to the job at hand. Minimize diamond core bit jams with core drills that can detect and compensate for embedded rebar. Satisfy dry or wet core-drilling applications with core drills that can be handheld or rig-mounted.


This is on-demand concrete core drilling

The big advantage of empowering your trade experts to handle their own concrete coring is that a project rarely gets stuck waiting around for an outside coring team to get called in, travel to site, do the work, and then clean-up – sometimes just for one or two holes.

Designed for non-specialists to use easily and accurately

Hilti has figured out how to make concrete core drilling easy for people who aren’t coring full-time. We did this by identifying the major problems of water management, tool mobility, and clean up and devising solutions that make operation simple, intuitive and fast.

Turns a multiple person job into a one person job

From the setup to cleanup, one person is all it takes. Because it is easy to maneuver and self-contained. Hilti’s diamond concrete core drilling system eliminates the need for multiple people to be involved in coring work. This can reduce the labor from an average of three people to just one.

It's the fastest way to core in the industry, from start to finish

Speed is a natural companion to productivity. Not only can one person do an entire coring job solo, the time it takes them to setup, drill, cleanup is typically 40% faster than the next best alternative.

Pays for itself in just two or three jobs

No tricks or complicated math required: The upfront investment of the system pays for itself very quickly when compared to the costs for outsourcing coring and waiting for work to be done.

Water and slurry management system

With a portable water supply unit (Hilti DWP 10) for diamond drilling– capacity 10 liters you can core in places with no direct water supply or by using the Hilti DD-WMS 100;  a single unit for the supply of cooling water as well as the collection and filtration of wastewater from diamond drilling systems. Your water and slurry management needs are sorted.
