Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) provides a low cost safeguard in locating obstructions beneath the surface through both 2-D and 3-D imaging. In most cases it can pinpoint the exact location of rebar, pipes, post-tension cables, and other utility lines in real-time. GPR can also determine pavement layer thickness nondestructively with very little data post-processing. GPR Engineering was founded in 2004, to provide ground penetrating radar services in and around the Central Kentucky area. Learn more at GPR Engineering.
Core drilling is possibly the most recognizable form of concrete cutting today. The most common application for core drilling is the removal of concrete for electrical conduit, mechanical systems, HVAC systems, and plumbing. Concrete Coring Co of Central KY has the capability to core drill holes smaller than 1" to greater than 48". Depths can range from 6" to unlimited.
Wall sawing is one of the most specialized forms of concrete cutting available. With very deep cutting depths and accuracy of rail mounted operation, this form of concrete cutting can be used to cut out doorways, walls, slabs, and most any other opening. Concrete Coring Co of Central KY has several wall sawing options including hydraulic, and electric. Each form of wall saw has its benefits depending on the job application. Cutting depths can be as much as 24" from one side, with heights and widths that are dimensionless.
The flat saw is often seen as the work horse in the concrete cutting industry. This tool is used for slab removal, road cutting, bridge deck removal, joint cutting, and almost any other sawing application on a slab. Concrete Coring Co of Central KY has many different flat saws depending upon the cutting application, the location, and timeframe requirements. With cutting depths exceeding 24" and a fleet of saws available, Concrete Coring Co of Central KY can meet the demands of any sawing job.
Electric slab saws allow Concrete Coring Co of Central KY to provide customers and facilities significant cutting depths, high production sawing and zero emissions. Concrete Coring Co of Central KY has some of the most specialized electric slab saws available. Specialized 400Hz, water cooled, 25HP electric motors allow us to achieve significant cutting depths in very small saw, high production saws. The specialized saws and electrical sources allows us to reach over 500ft into a facility with cutting depths of up to 14in deep.
The chain saw is one of the newer developments within the concrete cutting industry. The concrete chain saw uses the same principal as its wood cutting counterpart but utilizes water cooling and diamond segments welded to a chain for cutting. Concrete Coring Co of Central KY has several different chainsaw applications to meet any customerís needs. Hydraulic powered chainsaws offer the most torque and production but require attachment to a power unit. We also have gas powered chainsaws that can be portable to any place water hoses can reach. The most common job for this tool is finishing corners on wall saw projects, eliminating the need for over-cutting. Concrete chainsaws are also useful for small wall openings where setting up a wall saw is not possible or cost effective.
Grinding involves the use of a diamond abrasive disc powered by a gasoline or electric engine. The diamond abrasive disc is cooled by water which also eliminates the production of dust. Grinding is often useful for smoothing concrete surfaces that have become rough through abuse, weather, or issues during pouring. Concrete Coring Co of Central KY has the ability to smooth most concrete surfaces through grinding.
Wire Sawing provides fast cutting speed, unlimited cutting depth, no vibration, and limited noise. This method of sawing is ideal for cutting mass concrete, reinforced concrete and sections of concrete too large for other methods. Concrete Coring Company has wire sawing options to meet any need. Wire saws consist of a steel cable coated with diamond-tipped beads and a pulley system, which allows the cable to pull through the concrete, executing the cut with precision, no vibration, zero dust, or emissions.
