Tools and knowledge for the perfect borehole

One of the most common jobs that occurs in and around the house is drilling. In addition to the correct drilling angle and knowledge of the existing power and water lines, the selection of the drill and drill bit are of great importance. However, the use of the right drill bit is crucial for good drilling results. Many drills differ not only in their design. Different shaft shapes and special alloys decide on the right use. If concrete, masonry, granite or finer material such as tiles have to be drilled through, then you can and should fall back on the all-round talent "SDS drill". The SDS drill can not only drill through a wide variety of materials, but also offers a remedy for special cases.

SDS stands for a special drill shank system, for percussive and rotary drills and hammer drills. With this insertion system, the drill shank has special grooves that ensure better power transmission. In contrast to other insertion systems, the SDS drill shank enables drills to be changed quickly and without tools.

Thanks to high-quality carbide with a solid metal hard head with 4 cutting edges, high-quality SDS-Plus drills, such as those from CHEMOFAST, ensure a perfectly symmetrical drill hole. The drill with double spiral design guarantees fast drilling progress and efficient drilling dust removal. Vibrations during drilling are reduced to a minimum and thus ensure effective and safe drilling.

For an exact drilling, you should mark the drilling hole with a pencil before drilling. For tiles, it is advisable to “mark” the drill hole to prevent the drill bit from slipping. Next, mark the depth of the drill hole (e.g. with adhesive tape on the drill) and, from a safe position, drill the drill hole at right angles to the wall. The drill hole must be free of dust so that the load-bearing capacity of the anchor is not impaired. We therefore strongly recommend cleaning with a vacuum cleaner or brush!
