For use in conjunction with the Automatic Core Saw, we manufacture the whole range of Discoverer® Broken Core Guides for holding brittle or damaged core, or an V-Core Holder for competent core when being cut.
We have committed to manufacturing the Discoverer® Broken Core Guides as a superior product to anything else on the market currently. This is due to the demand & feedback we have from Mine Site Coresaw Operators which enables this product to endure the tough, rigorous environment they are subject to. The end plates are individually manufactured from an one-piece mild steel plate, which means that it's virtually impossible to 'bend' or misshape this plate. These plates also form the handles at each end in which the operator uses to lower the core guide into the core saw channel. The four hinges are heavy duty in view of being opened many hundreds of times throughout it's life-cycle. And finally the unique solid plastic casing around the core itself, is chosen for it's robust and enduring properties. We've had feedback that these Discoverer Core Guides will outlast other products by 2-3 times their life-cycle as a minimum, which makes this a safe investment to bet on. #MakingLifeEasier.
The PQ & LTK60/NQ3 Core Guide sizes are both unique sizes on the market, manufactured by us specially for customers drilling those core diameters. The PQ broken core guide, being an 85mm core, has a larger overall width, so this can only be used in conjunction with a Corewise Auto Coresaw that has a 110mm feed-in channel. The Almonte Coresaw feed-in channel is only 90mm, so won't accommodate this fully enclosed plastic broken core guide. The LTK60/NQ3 Guide will fit LTK60 (44mm) Core and NQ3 (45.1mm) Core in the same Core Carrier due to the sizing being so similar, so we are pleased to offer this too.
For the more competent core, a few mine sites will just use the V-Core Holder, and sometimes it comes down to the personal preference. The V-Core Holder can also be used to cut competent PQ Core on an Almonte Coresaw, but if you are drilling a reasonable amount of PQ we'd highly recommend trialing the Corewise saw with our Broken Core Guides for an extra level of safety, which you can trial on your site before you commit to purchase!

Note: These Broken Core Guides are sometimes referred to as Core Carriers or Core Holders, regardless of the name we can provide them to be suitable for both the Almonte Core Saw or the Corewise Automatic Core Saw, just advise which brand of saw you have upon ordering.
