DRILL FAQ

Drill FAQ will give you idea about the types of drill machines and their various industrial applications. Here it is tried to describe the common queries and needful information for drilling machine. For further query about the tools and their technical specification, you can visit the website – http://www.bhavyamachinetools.com

What is drill?

Drill is a tool used with cutter device like drill bit to drill various size of holes in solid materials like metal, wood and concrete etc.

What are the available types of drills?

There are various types of drills such as manual hand operated drills like bow drill, gimlet, breast drill and push drill. Electrical drills are pistol grip drill, hammer drill, cordless drill, drill press, radial drill and drilling cum milling machine.

What are drill bits?

Drill bits are the cutting tools used to create cylindrical holes in solid materials. Drill bits are held in the drills to get torque on rotation which creates holes.

What are the types of available drill bits?

There are various types of drill bits used in Industrial applications. Universal drill bits are used to make holes in wood, metal, plastic and others. There are different variants of universal bits like twist drill bits, step drill bit, unibit, hole saw etc, Metal drill bits as the name suggest, is used in metalworking for drilling. Variants of metal drill bits are center and spotting drill bits, core drill bit, countersink bit, ejector drill bit, gun drill bit, indexable drill bit etc. Wood drill bits are used for drilling in wood with different types of bits includes lip and spur drill bits, wood spade bits, spoon bits, forstner drill bits, center bits, auger bits, gimlet bits and adjustable wood bits etc. There are other bits used for different materials like diamond core bits, masonry drill bits, glass drill bits, PCB drill bits etc.

Where Pillar drill machines are used?

These are used to drill the solid materials with different sizing capacities ranging from 13mm to 40mm. It is used for tapping, screwing, counter boring, lapping etc. Easy installation and smooth operation with this type of drill press have made it more popular in commercial usage.

Where Radial drill machines are used?

Radial arm to drilling increase the operation versatility. Drilling of large and heavy metals and solid materials are executed quite systematically with accuracy and precision. The high quality steel parts, drilling column, arms and geared work head increase the tolerance capacity of the machine. This heavy capacity radial drills are used where it needs to bear high drilling resistant for drilling heavy metals with precision work ranging from 25mm to 40mm.

Why to use all Geared radial drill machine?

This is the advanced radial drill equipment and used in the industries where required high performance and precision drilling. It equipped with gears can greatly handle and adjust the speed of spindle to enhance the drilling accuracy with high drilling force. It is used with auto feed and fine feed to drill 40mm, 45mm drilling capacities in metalworking industries.

Where to use Drilling cum milling machine?

This two in one combo function machine is used for drilling as well milling and other machining like slotting and tapping. This high performance multi tasking drill machine is used where multiple job work needs to be done by a single operator occasionally or frequently.

What are the safety measures one must take during drilling operation?

It is one of the risky instruments during drilling execution. Several precautionary measures can prevent the accidents like always use holding device to fix the work piece from being escaped. Don’t shake/adjust the work piece while drilling is on. Use brush to clean the drilled matter to avoid burn. Keep any of the flammable material away from the drilling place. Hold the drill machine straight during drill cutting. Keep the drilling table clean during and after the process. One must use face protector to protect face and eye during drilling. Drilling must be careful to avoid breakage of drill bits that can harmful to the operator. Check the drill bits and drill unit well before operation. Drill bits must be sharpened..
