Bosch Hollow SDS-Max & SDS-Plus Vacuum Drill Bits

Bosch Hollow Bits

Last year at the World of Concrete one of the big product launches out of the Hilti camp were their version of the hollow SDS-Max and SDS-Plus drill bits. This year it is Bosch and Simpson who have teamed up to create a system for anchoring up to 50% faster. Both systems work basically the same where the drill bits are connected to any decent vacuum and while the hole is drilled it’ll such up all the dust and debris. This of course reduces the heat and friction so drilling can go much faster. When the hole is drilled there is no need for additional cleaning, simply fill with epoxy and set your anchor.

This process is much easier to standardize and ensure it is done correctly vs cleaning and blowing out the hole which can sometimes be done incorrectly if rushed and it is very hard to inspect afterwards. The downside to these bits is that you definitely need to have a vacuum with you on the job. For quick anchoring jobs this may not be a good option since the bits are not fluted they just won’t remove the dust without the vacuum.

The Bosch bits have addressed some of the initial problems of the Hilti bits which would clog easily by creating larger holes and shaft. They are still waiting for these to be approved with the Simpson epoxy so they expect the system to launch in October 2014 if things all go as planned. Of course we were running with the new Bosch Vacuums which we will have a follow up post ready soon. Overall we were very impressed with the upgrades there as well.

  5. Getting involved in different pastimes is a great way to make new friends and develop new skills as well as
    having fun, although choosing what activities to do can be harder than it sounds.
    Yet, we can hold that tiny quarter so close to our eyes that we cannot see the sun. For example, the Makaton sign for rainbow (four fingers outstretched and moved in an arc
    in front of the chest) can then be used in the song, ‘I can sing a rainbow.

  6. Many construction sites will have a confined space.
    When looking to complete house maintenance or working in the construction industry, there
    are a number of elements which can halt the progress of the job at hand.
    And even the interior cleaning can be interrupted if there is additional construction or installation work that
    needs to be completed.
