We are the UK and Ireland importer for TopTec remote controlled robotic demolition machinery. Utilising these robots is the safest method of controlled demolition, material reducing, handling and breaking—especially in sensitive or confined environments.
Designed and built entirely in Germany, the TopTec robots we employ are the strongest and most reliable machines in the market today due to their robust and rigid construction. Because they are electrically driven and operated by the use of radio remote control, they are frequently used in non-ventilated areas and all hazardous applications.
Commonly found in industry sectors such as construction, demolition, cement and steel plants and nuclear decommissioning, the standard range of machines can easily be adapted to suit the most demanding or sensitive contracts
DIAMOND CORE DRILLING
Using a diamond tipped core bit and hand held or mounted drill motor, holes can be drilled either wet or dry into reinforced concrete at virtually any angle. The main applications range from: precisely positioned single holes for mechanical and electrical services, pipe work and heating conduits, ventilation shafts and telephone cables, core sampling and anchor holes, to stitch drilling of larger sections that are too big to cut or saw.
UKdima Limited has all standard drill sizes in stock from 10mm to 700mm, but we also manufacture our own drills to order of any diameter and length. A re-tip service is also available.
DIAMOND WIRE SAWING
When it comes to diamond wire sawing, UKdima’s reputation is unequalled in this field…
Wire sawing is ideally suited for large cuts of almost any size. Using a remote controlled electriically or hydraulically driven sawing unit, loops of diamond wire are pulled through the material to complete a cut.
We can adapt our world patented diamond wire specifications to meet the requirements of each contract. The wires can be used wet or dry, making them suitable for use in sensitive environments. We can cut anything from heavily reinforced and massed concrete, sub-sea, offshore, super-shot concrete, carbon steel, stainless steel, pig iron to solid steel. We also manufacture bespoke wire sawing systems.
We specialise in taking on technically difficult projects and have been involved in many high profile contracts such as wire sawing in Culligran, Longannet and Cruachan Power Stations, Sellafield and Winfrtih Nuclear Power Stations, Bridgetown Pier—Barbados, Birmingham Bull ring and International Airport, Kingston Bridge—Glasgow, Sheraton Hotel—Edinburgh, wire sawing a solid steel off-shore barge in half—a first in Ireland etc.
DIAMOND FLOOR SAWING
Floor sawing is a one man operation using diamond tipped blades mounted onto electric, petrol or diesel walk behind sawing machines, to cut horizontally into flat surfaces. The blades can be interchanged depending on the material to be cut and the depth required. The saws can be used internally and externally and will cut up to 600mm deep through asphalt and reinforced concrete.
Applications include: road sawing, runways, trench runs, bridge deck removal, openings in slabs for stairs or services, drainage ducts, expansion joints, removal of concrete sections for demolition etc.
DIAMOND WALL SAWING
Wall saws are remote controlled, track mounted machines supporting diamond tipped blades, that are used to cut precise vertical and horizontal slots up to 1000mm deep in reinforced concrete structures.
The main applications are door, vent and window openings, stairwells etc. Their speed and accuracy makes them ideal machines for precision work.
DIAMOND CHAIN SAWING AND HAND HELD SAWING
Diamond tipped chainsaws are used for their accuracy and safety in precision work in areas where access is restricted. Their versatility eliminates over-cuts and reduces patchwork in comparison to conventional cutting methods. Openings can be cut as small as 3”x3” for mechanical and electrical fittings, to deep plunge cuts in concrete pipes, foundations, door & window openings, beam pockets, vents and expansion joints.
Our hand sawing machines will take a 400mm diameter blade that will cut to a depth of 175mm. The saws are used to cut reinforced concrete, brick etc. Applications include cutting of door and window openings and openings in light weight floors.
SPECIALIST PLANT HIRE
We have a hire fleet of specialist plant and equipment ranging from hand held and rig mounted drill motors, drilling rigs, core drills, chainsaws, floor saws, demolition robots and Avant articulated loading machines.
Avant mulit-tool loaders are the ideal solution for material handling. Available in both diesel and LPG versions, they have great adaptability and manoeuvrability. Their small size and compactness makes them perfect for use in enclosed and non-ventilated environments. The quick hitch system allows fast tool changeover from buckets to pallet forks, hydraulic hammers, augers, sweepers etc.
