Specimen Core Drilling

The GCTS Specimen Core Drills provide the first step to prepare tests specimens for a variety of material characterization tests. These core drills are able to handle heavy duty tasks by using a large range of spindle speeds to provide optimum performance regardless of the properties of the material being cored. Some drills include stress and stroke control to optimize the feeding rate when coring material that is not homogenous.

GCTS also offers Specimen Lab Saws, Specimen End Grinders, and a Specimen Verification Kit to fully prepare a cylindrical rock specimen for testing.
