Diamond Core Drill
Electroplated Diamond core Drill Bitsfor Glass, Ceramic, Porcelain, Tile & Stone are made by diamond coating one end of a metal base. Use these diamond core drill bits to make holes in a variety of hard to cut materials. Unlike conventional twist drills, diamond drills work by gently grinding (or sanding) the material you are cutting. This process takes time, you have to be patient. A core drill will cut more quickly than a solid drillsince it is only cutting out a small circle of material. The larger size core drill bits will also give you a useable core, but the core from the smaller drill bits are usually destroyed during the cutting process. These tools work on all types of stone,glass,tile,composites,plastics,resins,porcelain,eggs,and much more. The smaller sizes can be used in a hand drill or rotary tool (like a Dremel or Foredom), but the larger sizes should be used in a drill press.
Electroplated Diamond Core Drills offer several performance benefits due to their unique design and the use of electroplating technology.Key performance characteristics:
Fast and Precise Drilling: Electroplated diamond core drills are known for their fast and efficient drilling capabilities. The diamond particles on the surface of the drill bit provide exceptional cutting speed, allowing for quick hole formation.
Clean and Smooth Holes: These core drills produce clean and smooth holes with minimal chipping or fracturing of the material being drilled. This is particularly important when working with delicate or brittle materials like glass, ceramics, or certain stones.
Longevity: Electroplated diamond core drills are durable and have a longer lifespan compared to some other types of core drills. The electroplated diamond layer is securely bonded to the drill bit's surface, ensuring a consistent cutting performance over time.
Versatility: These core drills are versatile and suitable for various materials, including glass, ceramics, porcelain, tiles, marble, granite, and other hard or brittle substances. They are commonly used in construction, renovation, and DIY projects.
Minimal Heat Generation: Electroplated diamond core drills generate less heat during drilling compared to some other types of drills. This is important for preventing damage to the material being drilled and maintaining the integrity of the workpiece.
Reduced Dust and Debris: The precise cutting action of electroplated diamond core drills results in less dust and debris during drilling, improving the working environment and reducing the need for extensive cleanup.
Ease of Use: These core drills are easy to use and suitable for both professionals and DIY enthusiasts. They can be used with standard drill machines and are available in various sizes to accommodate different hole diameters.
It's important to note that the performance of an electroplated diamond core drill can also depend on factors such as the drill's quality, the hardness and thickness of the material being drilled, and the operator's skill. Proper lubrication and cooling are often recommended to enhance the drill's performance and extend its life.
Order Code and Size Range
Electroplated diamond core drills come in a wide range of sizes to accommodate various drilling needs. Here's a size list that includes common diameters from 3mm to 100mm.These sizes cover a wide range of drilling applications, from small precision holes to larger openings for various industries and purposes. It's important to choose the appropriate size based on your specific drilling requirements and the material you are working with.
The order code for Electroplated Diamond Core Drills typically consists of the prefix "EDCD+" followed by the diameter of the drill bit you require. Here's how it looks:
EDCD+3mm (for a 3mm diameter electroplated diamond core drill)
EDCD+10mm (for a 10mm diameter electroplated diamond core drill)
EDCD+25mm (for a 25mm diameter electroplated diamond core drill)
You can simply replace "Diameter" with the specific diameter you need when placing an order. This format helps ensure that you receive the correct size of core drill for your application.
Electroplated diamond core drills are versatile tools used for drilling holes in various materials. Their unique design and diamond coating make them suitable for a wide range of applications, including:
Construction Industry: Electroplated diamond core drills are commonly used in the construction industry for drilling holes in concrete, reinforced concrete, and masonry. They are essential for tasks like installing plumbing, electrical conduits, and anchor bolts.

Glass and Ceramics: Electroplated diamond core drills can be used to drill holes in glass and ceramic materials for various applications, such as creating openings for faucets, handles, and decorative elements.
DIY and Home Improvement: DIY enthusiasts and homeowners often use electroplated diamond core drills for projects like installing bathroom fixtures, shelves, and wall-mounted accessories. They are also useful for crafting and art projects involving hard materials.
Automotive and Aerospace: In manufacturing and repair processes within the automotive and aerospace industries, these core drills are used to create holes in metal, composites, and other materials for assembly or repair purposes.
Jewelry Making: Electroplated diamond core drills are valuable tools for jewelry makers who work with hard gemstones, minerals, and precious metals. They allow for precise hole drilling in beads and gemstones.
Laboratory and Scientific Applications: Scientific laboratories use electroplated diamond core drills for precision drilling in materials like glass, ceramics, and composites as part of their research and experimentation.
Archaeology and Paleontology: Researchers in these fields often use core drills to extract samples from rocks, fossils, and ancient artifacts without damaging the specimens.
Environmental Sampling: Core drills are employed in environmental science to collect soil, sediment, or rock samples for testing and analysis, particularly during environmental impact assessments and geological studies.
Oil and Gas Exploration: In the oil and gas industry, core drilling is essential for obtaining core samples from deep underground to assess the presence of oil or gas reserves and the surrounding geological formations.
Mining: Core drills play a crucial role in mining operations for extracting core samples to evaluate mineral deposits and geological conditions.
Geological Surveys: Geologists use core drills for conducting surveys and collecting core samples to study rock layers and subsurface geology.
CBN (Cubic Boron Nitride) diamond sharpening wheels are available in various diameters to suit different sharpening machines and applications. The choice of wheel diameter depends on the size and type of cutting tools you plan to sharpen.List of common CBN diamond sharpening wheel diameters:
6-inch CBN Sharpening Wheel: This size is commonly used in small benchtop sharpening machines and is suitable for sharpening a variety of tools, including chisels, plane blades, and small turning tools.
8-inch CBN Sharpening Wheel: An 8-inch wheel offers a larger sharpening surface than the 6-inch version. It is popular for general-purpose sharpening tasks and can handle a wider range of tool sizes.
10-inch CBN Sharpening Wheel: Larger 10-inch wheels provide more surface area for sharpening larger tools and blades. They are suitable for professional workshops and industrial applications.
12-inch CBN Sharpening Wheel: 12-inch wheels are larger and well-suited for industrial sharpening tasks, including the sharpening of industrial cutting tools, milling cutters, and saw blades.
14-inch CBN Sharpening Wheel: These larger wheels are used in heavy-duty industrial settings for sharpening large cutting tools and blades used in metalworking and woodworking.
16-inch CBN Sharpening Wheel: The 16-inch wheel offers a substantial sharpening surface and is typically found in large industrial sharpening equipment used for high-volume sharpening.
