During the test, the following parameters can be measured continuously:
- Penetration force
- Actual drill position
- Rotational speed
- Penetration rate
Both rotational speed and feed rate are kept constant during operation, and can be regulated by the operator between minimum and maximum values.
To reduce the wear effect, special diamond drill bits (with flat diamond tip) are used; it’s also possible to correct the abrasion effect of the material in the post process section of the software, through a dedicated algorithm.
