At the EUROPM 2017 a first approach for the analysis of the wear in core drilling processes of concrete based on statistical features was presented. Due to promising results of this first approach, and to increase the data basis, further experiments with the same tools were conducted. Beside a conventional concrete (C20/25), a second concrete (C100/115), with different composition and properties, was machined. Like before, the presented analysis is based on process force measurements and a microscopic analysis of the segments to detect diamond breakouts. Statistical methods were used to detect such certain events. Additionally, a lifetime estimation for single diamonds is carried out, which allows to forecast the breakout of single diamonds. Hence, the time when half or all of the diamonds visible in the beginning are broken out can be forecast.
