Innovation in core drilling

In recent years, EDILMAC strived to completely renew its yard equipment and vehicles, thus expanding its work range in quarrying, tunnelling and well expansion; in recent years our company has specialised in rock core drilling, adding Sandvik DE 130 and DE 130 N and Atlas Copco Diamec 262 to its large machine and equipment fleet.

This equipment can work in various rock and other material conditions, both under and above ground and guarantee the best safety standards for operators.

Compared to traditional drilling techniques (drills, jack hammers, etc.), core drilling provides clear benefits:

  • greater precision due to lack of vibration
  • time savings: lower removed material volume
  • lack of structure vibrations
  • heavy-duty drilling in diameter and length
  • geognostic surveys for material research
