For Hilti, Drilling is a Core Competency
Published: 13/4, 2021
Hilti offers one of the most comprehensive product portfolios for core drilling. In addition to drill motors, stands and a broad core bit program, the company also offers a wide range of accessories including the DD VP-U vacuum pump, the DD WMS 100 water management system and the DD-AF CA autofeed unit for the DD 350-CA and DD 500-CA high-frequency motors.
In the center of the product program stand the compact, multifunctional DD 150-U and the powerful heavy-duty DD 250-CA systems, equipped with Hilti’s Cut-Assist technology. The new units feature base material search, electric starting aid, automatic water on/off and breakthrough detection, plus some valuable new features aimed at enhancing productivity.
The DD 150-U and DD 250-CA offer now digital displays so that users can do even better and more.
The units also contol the DD AF-CA L and DD AF-CA H autofeed units. The systems recognize the start and completion of every hole displaying actual drilling depth during drilling and collecting total depth in their user statistics.
Hilti also offers all electric devices needed while coring, all of which are connected via Bluetooth® into self-optimizing local equipment networks – with the entire system controlled over the digital displays of the drilling tools. Users can monitor progress while carrying out other tasks and will be instantly notified about any change in the status of their tools while the system is automatically taking measures to avoid downtime for situations such as loss of cooling water or jammed core bits.
A flow of functions and screens escort the user through the application steps from set-up to drilling and the tracking of the work that has been done. A gear selection aid, digital spirit level, electric starting aid, real time contact force controls and easy to understand service messages make the work easier and increase productivity.
