KEY FEATURES OF STITCH DRILLING
This is the preferred method when the sides of the opening are too short in relation to the depth of the material being cut. The opening is formed by drilling consecutive holes to suit the dimensions.
This method allows us to create an opening of almost any shape or size.
Diamond drilling produces minimal dust, so stitch drilling using a diamond drill is the best choice for working in a sterile or clean environment such as a hospital.
WHAT IS STITCH DRILLING?
Stitch Drilling is drilling a series of overlapping holes and can be used to form openings of almost any shape.
Stitch drilling is usually used when a site is too cramped for other methods of cutting.
Diamond drilling is suitable for use underwater. This means that there are a whole range of functions for which stitch drilling is a necessity – such as working on water treatment facilities or off-shore platforms.
HOW DOES STITCH DRILLING WORK?
Stitch drilling drill a series of holes in the material in a stitch-like, overlapping pattern. Once the perimeter is drilled, the isolated central section is removed through hydraulic bursting or breaking
During drilling, the diamond bit rotates. Water runs through the driving shaft to cool the barrel and flush away the material being cut.

Factors that need to be considered during diamond drilling include:
- Type of material/surface to be cut
- Diameters and depths of holes to be drilled
- Structural resistance of the material
