WHY USE MAGNETIC DRILL?

Magnetic drills were initially designed for construction companies to drill a large quantity of holes in structural steel already in place, such as i-beams. They offer increased stability and are easier to use than a hand held drill and also provide better accuracy and cut large diameter holes faster.

By using a magnetic drill, you’ll gain the precision and speed for drilling in tough materials when you need to drill with accuracy and consistency. Magnetic drills have a strong electromagnetic base enabling it to adhere to a carbon steel (ferrous metal) surface while turned on. Magnetic drills can be positioned to drill horizontally, vertically or overhead which is especially useful in construction.

How us a Magnetic drilling machine: A Basic Guide

  1. Select the correct cutter for the material to be drilled.
  2. Select the correct ejector pin for the cutter length.
  3. Insert the cutter in the machine chuck and tighten the screws correctly.
  4. Move the machine towards the mark where the hole is to be drilled and with the help of the pilot pin locate the mark by touching the tip of the pilot pin tip over the mark.
  5. After positioning the machine on the mark where the hole is to be made, switch on the magnet switch of the magnetic drilling machine. Check if the magnet indicator glows GREEN. If the magnet indicator glows RED that means the magnet does not have enough material below for a perfect adhesion. In an ideal condition, the thickness of the material to be drilled must be minimum 8 mm (5/16 inches)
  6. Fill the coolant tank with lubricant. Never use the machine without lubricant.
  7. Turn ON the coolant tank knob of the magnetic drill press.
  8. You must use the internal lubrication when drilling with annular cutters and also use external lubrication when drilling above 50 mm thickness.
  9. Switch ON the motor switch of the magnetic drill press and start to drill with slow feed. Do not crash the cutter on to the material.
  10. Start to drill with a firm steady feed rate. Too slow or too fast feed rate will damage the annular cutter.
  11. Check if the lubricant is coming out. Use a lot of lubricant for good results.
  12. Putting too much pressure on the feed handle will not make drilling faster; instead, it will break the annular cutters.
  13. Drill with less pressure and steady feed for best results and longer service life of annular cutters.
  14. To prevent long chips forming you should use reverse feed when cutting deep holes.
  15. To prevent accidents, clean the work area with an appropriate cleaning tool after drilling.
  16. Perfect drilling with the above instructions will result in perfectly finished holes, in less time and with more service life of both cutter and machine.


I)Cardinal Safety Instruction For Using Magnetic Drilling Machine:

■ Do not use the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) in potentially flammable or explosive environments.

■ Persons,who are unable to safely operate the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) due to their physical, mental or motor abilities, may only use the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) under the supervision or instruction of a person responsible.

■ Persons with heart problems or other medical implants must not use this magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press).

■ Children are not permitted to use the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press).

■ Inspect the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) for visible signs of damage before use. Do not operate a damaged magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press).

■ Before beginning work, check the condition of the safety chain and the function of the switches on the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press).

■ Repairs to the connecting cable may only be performed by a qualified electrician.

■ Repairs to the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) may only be performed by an authorised specialist workshop or factory customer service.

Unqualified repairs can lead to considerable danger for the user.

■ Repairs to the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) during the guarantee period may only be performed by a customer service authorised by the manufacturer, otherwise, the guarantee is invalid.

■ Defective parts may only be replaced with original spare parts. Only these parts ensure that the safety requirements are met.

■ Do not leave the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) unsupervised during operation.

■ Store the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) in a dry, temperate location out of the reach of children.

■ Do not allow the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) to stand outside and do not expose it to moisture.

■ Make sure that your work area is sufficiently lit (>300 Lux).

■ Do not use low-power magnetic drilling machines (magnetic drill press)s for heavy working.

■ Keep the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) clean, dry and free of oil and grease.

■ Follow the instructions on lubricating and cooling the tool.

II) Precautions to take while using a Magnetic Drill Machine:

Contact with live wires or components can lead to serious injury or even death!

Observe the following safety precautions to avoid any danger from electric current:

► Do not open the housing of the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press). Risk of electric shock from touching live connections.

► Never immerse the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) or mains plug in water or other liquids.

► Only use extension cables or cable drums with a cable cross-section of at least 1.5 mm².

► Only use extension cables that are approved for the location of use.

► Check the condition of the extension cable regularly and replace if damaged.

► Avoid bodily contact with grounded parts (e.g., pipes, radiators, steel girders) to reduce the risk of electric shock in the event of a defect.

► When using the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) outside or in a humid environment, an RCD (residual circuit device) must be used.

III) Handling of the Magnetic Drilling Machine Safely:

Improper handling of the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) increases the risk of injury!

Pay attention to the following safety instructions in order not to injure others or yourself:

► Operate the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) only with the protective equipment specified in these instructions.

► Do not wear protective gloves when the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) is running. A glove can be caught by the drilling magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) and torn off the hand. Risk of losing one or more fingers.

► Remove loose jewelry before beginning work.

► Wear a hair net if you have long hair.

► Always switch off the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) before changing tools, performing maintenance or cleaning. Wait until the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) has come to a complete standstill.

► Always remove the plug from the mains socket before changing tools, cleaning or performing maintenance work in order to avoid unintentional starting of the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press).

► Do not put your hand into the machine while it is in operation. Remove swarf only when the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) is at a standstill. Wear protective gloves when removing swarf.

► When working on scaffolding, the operator must be secured with a safety belt as the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) can oscillate dangerously in the event of an interruption to the power supply.

► Check for secure clamping of the electromagnets on the substrate before every use.

► Secure the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) with the safety chain supplied when working in an inclined or vertical position and during overhead work. The magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) could fall down if the magnet is loosened or the power fails.

► Check that the tool is tightened securely before using.

► Do not allow the connecting cable to hang over edges (trip effect).

IV) Cleaning the Magnetic Drill Machine after each use:

■ Remove the inserted tool.

■ Remove swarf and coolant residues.

■ Clean the tool and the tool holder on the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press).

■ Clean the guide of the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) slide.

■ Put the magnetic drilling machine (magnetic drill press) and accessories into the mobile case
