Core Cutting

Wellsite Trimming Saw

Manufacturer: Geofactory
Model Number: SAMP-501

The Portable Trimming Unit is a tool necessary when a plugging operation is required after a coring operation. The quality of the blade on the Wellsite Trimming Saw enables an excellent precision of the cut at the extremity of the samples. It has all of the protections to guarantee safe handling and a recirculating coolant system is available if needed. In addition, Geofactory can provide viton tubing to protect the plugs of soft formation.



Automated Core Slabbing Saw

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: ASSAW

Automated Core Slabbing Saw is a versatile diamond impregnated radial blade utilized to slab core samples in two halves or to trim full diameter rock samples. The automated machine is fitted with a variable rate feed mechanism that enables the cutting of long section of very dense core in one pass without fracturing, grooving or chipping and producing a high-finished surface.



Full Size Core End-Face Grinder

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: FSC-EFG

Full Size Core End-Face Grinder tool designed to provide flat, parallel end-faces when sample geometry is critical for advanced rock property test. The tool can accommodate plug size and full size core samples up to 4 inches diameter.



Wellsite Slabbing Saw

Manufacturer: Geofactory
Model Number: SAMP-601

The Onsite Slabbing Unit is designed to be easily mobilised to the drilling rig. It is modulable in 3 part and can cut core up to 140 mm of diameter. It offers the advantages that the rock sample is moved to the diamond blade. This approach increases the sensibility of the cut during process that will support the engineer to provide a clear cut.



Wellsite Plugging Machine

Manufacturer: Geofactory
Model Number: SAMP-401

The Onsite Plugging Unit is designed to be fixed on all types of supports. It is easy to set up and comes with a heavy motor and a positioning system for the core sample in order to guarantee accurate positioning of the plugging point. Diamond drill bits (wet/thin wall-1”;15”) are available, plus a swivel to support liquid nitrogen or kereson, mud… which can be adapted. The Plugging Unit is delivered with all the accessories needed for perfect handling (tool box, plug extractor…).



Wellsite Plugging Machine for Unconsolidated Samples

Manufacturer: Geofactory
Model Number: SAMP-20

The Onsite Soft Plugging Unit has been built to take the plug into a soft and unconsolidated formation. The hydraulic system is used to precisely control the penetration of the plunger (not rotating) into the formation. The core sample is positioned just vertical to the plunger and the hand pump activates the plunger (1” or 1.5”) into the plugging point. Then the plug is removed from the plunger and fixed in a heat shrink sieve with a mesh screen and adjusted with the heat gun.



Automated End-Face Grinder

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: AEFG

This machine is ideal for rock property laboratories that need to prepare a large number of core samples for testing. It can handle all sizes of core samples from 1" to 6 inches diameter. It can simultaneously grind up to five plug sized core samples or two full sized samples. The unit is an easy-to-use, self-contained machine which will grind core sample ends according to the industry standard. A high-quality genuine diamond-grinding wheel produces an accurate and smooth finish of the sample.



End-Face Grinder

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: EFG

Tool designed to provide flat, parallel end-faces when sample geometry is critical for advanced rock property test. The tool comes with a core clamping device, housing and cover parts, a coolant feeding system, a coolant recovery pan and a diamond tool end-face grinding wheel. A core clamping device for whole diameter core sample, a recirculating coolant system and hoover for dry grinding operations are also available.



Trimming/End-Face Grinder

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: TS-EFG

Bench top tool which combines a trimming saw at one side and an endface grinder on the other side. It is designed to cut preset core sample lengths and grind the sample with extreme precision of the end face after trimming of 0.002 inch (5/100 mm).



Trim Saw

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: TS

Bench top tool designed to cut preset core sample lengths. The preset sample lengths can be adjusted at any time by rearranging machined spacers to the desired length between the blades The quality of the saw blade allows for extreme precision of the end face after trimming of 0.002 inch (5/100 mm). All wetted components are constructed from stainless steel and anodized aluminum for long lasting corrosion free operation. All bearings are sealed to insure long lasting free movement. The containment pans and splash guards are also constructed of heavy gauge stainless steel, anodized aluminum and corrosion free plastic. Recirculating coolant system is also available.



Automated Plugging Machine

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: APM

The heavy built diamond tooled drill press is especially designed to drill in various size core samples with an automatic, variable force, constant pressure feed. A constant pressure feed enables the coring bit to drill fast in soft rock, but the rate of advance will automatically slow down in harder rock. The constant pressure feed uses a hydraulic actuator for smooth operation at low rates of advance. The rapid-retract position brings the coring bit out of the rock to a position that will allow removal of the plug from the bit. The coring operation can be performed using water/oil coolant or optionally Liquid nitrogen for unconsolidated samples. The core clamping assembly is mounted on the pan table. An XY table allows for positioning the pan at the right position before drilling the core sample. The head of the drill press can be titled in order to drill the sample in vertical or inclined position.



Plugging Machine

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: PM

The heavy built diamond tooled drill press is especially designed to drill in various size core samples. The standard machine comes with a floor standing drill press, a rotary union, a coolant feeding system, a coolant recovery pan with splash guard and a core clamping vise. The union permits to connect the coring bit to the drill press and feed coolant to the coring bit. The vise assembly can be mounted on the pan table and allows for the positioning of the core. Various size of coring bits as well as the recirculating coolant system are available.
