Line Drilling

In the event you have encountered rock in an area where blasting is not an option either due to township ordinances or close structures, another solution to help significantly speed up the breaking process is to have American Rock Mechanics, LLC Line Drill the rock.

Line Drilling also known in the industry as “Swiss Cheesing” is the process of drilling many holes close together, usually on 1 ft centers, to allow much easier breaking of the rock with a hydraulic hammer.  This process can be used for any application from trench rock to bulk rock.  Drill patterns and hole sizes are adjusted based on the type of rock and how hard it is.

American rock mechanics currently has seven hydraulic drill rigs so even large areas can be taken care of in a short time using this manner of drilling.
