Comprehensive equipment for advanced core drillingPublished 11/3, 2022 at 09:31
Hilti offers one of the most comprehensive product portfolios for core drilling. A well-balanced program attracts not only professional diamond contractors making their living from sawing and coring applications but also professionals in other trades meeting the challenge of core drilling regularly or every once in a while.
Next to drill motors, stands and a broad core bit program Hilti 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 high-frequency motors DD 350-CA and DD 500-CA.
In the center of the product program stand the compact, multifunctional DD 150-U and the powerful heavy-duty DD 250-CA systems – both of them attracting attention with an overwhelmingly impressive package of new functionalities.
New autofeed units DD AF-CA L for DD 150-U and DD AF-CA H for DD 250-CA
Hilti is determined to spread its Cut-Assist technology. The new units not only transfer the popular DD-AF CA functions – base material search, electric starting aid, automatic water on/off and break through detection – to the new units but go beyond and bring impressive, exceptional features to the market.
Both drill motors are equipped with digital displays as user interface. The autofeed units are controlled and operated over these. The systems recognize the start and completion of every hole displaying actual drilling depth during drilling and collecting total depth in their user statistics. Detecting, tracking and registering drilling depth isn’t a vision anymore – it’s here.
Bluetooth connected, self-optimizing network of tools
Hilti not only offers drilling motors but also all electric devices needed while coring. There’s an immense potential of productivity in assiting the user by letting these tools to exchange information and optimize each others behavior.
The water management system DD-WMS 100, diamond drilling systems DD 150-U and DD 250-CA and autofeed units DD AF-CA L and DD AF-CA H are connected via Bluetooth into self-optimizing local equipment networks – with the entire system controlled over the digital displays of the drilling tools. You can monitor progress while carrying out other tasks. You will be instantly notified about any change in the status of your tools while the system is automatically taking measures to avoid downtime for instance through loss of cooling water or stucked core bits. Depleting water levels, missing filter bags and damaged segments will not lead to any headache anymore.
Creating a new level of tool user interaction
Hilti used LEDs on its tools for a long time to help users while working. The DD 150-U and DD 250-CA offer now digital displays so that users can do even better and more.
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.
In combination with a mobile device the ON!Track app helps you to better understand and register the usage history of the tools.
