Introduction

Magnetic Drilling Machine is a portable drilling machine with a magnetic base (either electromagnetic or permanent magnet). It can use twist drill bits, annular cutters, milling cutters, and other rotary cutters. With suitable bits it can also tap threads, ream, and countersink. Its combination of a stable magnetic base and low RPM help resist or reduce torque forces created by large diameter bits. Magnetic drilling machines with reversible motor and variable speed controls can also perform operations like tapping, countersink and reaming. Magnetic drilling machine with cross table base and can also perform light milling.

Our professional reviewers like to break down these issues to help the buyer in making a buying decision. A magnetic drill, mag drill for short, is a drill used to cut metal. Magnetic drills are made up from 4 key components: a magnetic base, a drill stand, a motor, and an arbor or chuck. You can use a wide variety of tooling with mag drills including annular cutters, twist drills, taps, reamers, and counter sinks.The convenience of a magnetic drill can’t be overstated.

Like the benchtop drill press or standing drill press, you need a magnetic drill press in hard to access locations, like I-beams, truck beds, vertical metal parts that are stationary and so forth. The magnetic base adheres to the metal surface and stabilizes the drill in order to cut the material. You won’t be able to achieve the same results with a non-magnetic drill press don’t even try it.

Why use a Magnetic Drill Machine?

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. Be sure to secure your mag drill to the surface being drilled into, especially when overhead, to avoid drops from heights or onto your head.

The Origins of the Magnetic Drill Machine

“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. A secondary benefit to mag drills is they can drill and tap (thread) holes up to 1-5/8″ (40mm). For example a common application is to drill a 9/16” (14mm) diameter hole to tap a 5/8″ (16mm) thread without moving the machine.”

Types of Magnetic Drill Presses:

  • Electric magnetic drill machines which are best in most job site situations where electricity is readily available and the work environment is relatively dry.
  • Pneumatic magnetic drill machines where a compressor can be accessed and the job site may be wet or in a hazardous environment.
  • Hydraulic magnetic drill machines which are mainly used for industrial, construction, and marine drilling applications.

How to use a Magnetic Drill Machine

  • The material base to be used must be ferrous metal for the electromagnet to work
  • The steel has to be flat and reasonably clean or the magnet won’t hold onto the surface.
  • Make sure the bottom of the drill is also free from debris.
  • Use a SAFETY chain to secure the drill press because once the power goes out, the tool will let loose of the steel and drop if overhead.

Cutting Tools for Magnetic Drills:

Most often you’ll use an annular cutter when drilling through steel. An annular cutter is an end mill with a hollow center that cuts holes in the metal. For annular cutters to work best, the steel generally needs to be at least 1/4″ thick for the magnetic drill press to stick to the surface – 1/2″ steel better.

Core Cutting with a Magnetic Drill Press

When cutting or drilling holes in steel, the magnetic drill press is indispensable. You can line up your drill and secure it in place which will take the wear and tear off your body while drilling. If you have the budget, get a mag drill with a swivel base. This makes lining up the drill over the hole easier.

For the purpose of this article we shall constrain ourselves with the electric magnetic drilling machines which is the type prevalent in the Nigeria market and that is what is in superior demand

Applications of Drilling Machines

The drilling machine is widely being used in a different industry, including construction, medical equipment, transportation, and electronic equipment. Different kinds of drills are using in particular applications that can construct holes in numerous sizes in various kinds of materials. Furthermore, the capability of the drilling machine can also be different because of the spindle speed, spindle nose, spindle travel and electric motor used in the machine. So, it is extremely important to choose the right and suitable drill press that meets clients' demand to match the industry they are working in.

Types of Drilling Machines

According to the purpose and structure, it is mainly divided into the following categories:

Portable Drilling Machine

The portable drilling machines are used to drill small holes and are commonly used in the entire workshop. This type of drill machine is operated by holding in a hand and the workpiece where the hole is to be drilled is held in a vice.

Sensitive Drilling Machine

The table and spindle speed and feed mechanism can be moved vertically on the column for machining small and medium-size workpieces. Sensitive drilling machines are available in floor and table type; it can enable the operator to sensitively feel the pressure required for drilling and effectively adjust the applied pressure.

Upright Drilling Machine

This type of machine is used for drilling medium and large size holes which are larger in size and stronger compared with the sensitive drilling machine. There are differences between two types of upright drilling machines based on the type of column used including round column and box column.

Radial Drilling Machine

The spindle speed and feed mechanism can be moved on the radial arm, the radial arm can be rotated and lifted, and the workpiece will be fixed. It is suitable for processing large, heavy and porous workpieces, and is widely used in machinery manufacturing.

Gang Drilling Machine

The gang drilling machine can drill the same or different sizes of holes at the same time or different time due to it has a number of drill heads placed together. So the specialty of this machine tool is that it can drill a huge number of holes all in the same efficient job.

Multiple Spindle Machine

This type of machine tool is similar to the gang drilling machine, which can also drill the many holes at one time, but all the holes are in the same workpieces and numbers of similar jobs.

Deep Hole Drilling Machine

A specialized machine tool that is used for deep hole drillings such as the deep holes of barrels and machine tool spindles. It is generally a horizontal way to facilitate a large body and it is often with coolant inside.

Frequently Asked Question About Magnetic Drilling Machine

When Do I Use a Magnetic Drill?

A portable magnetic drill may be used in any position vertical, horizontal, or overhead (upside down). It can be time-consuming and cumbersome to try to maneuver large steel or pipe into position at a stationary drill press or work center. A portable magnetic drill allows you to take the drill to the work piece, instead of trying to bring the work piece to the drill.

Where is a Magnetic Drill Used?

Magnetic Drill can be used in Steel Fabrication, Building & Construction, Bridge Rebuilding, Mining, Ship Building, Truck, RV & Special Vehicle Build, Pipeline, Offshore & Oil Fields, Welding Shops, Power Utilities, Railroad Industries, Maintenance Facilities, Mobile Repair Shops and Machinery Riggers.

What is the working principle of Magnetic Drilling Machine?

Working Principle of Magnetic Drilling Machine: When the power is given to the motor, the spindle rotates and thereby the stepped pulley attached to it also rotates. On the other end, one more stepped pulley is attached and that is inverted to increase or decrease the speed of the rotational motion.

What Are The Fundamental Safety Precautions For Using A Magnetic Drilling Machine?

The following are the Fundamental Safety Precautions For Using A Magnetic Drilling Machine;

  • Do not use the machine in flammable or potentially explosive environments.
  • Persons who due to their physical, mental or motor response abilities are unable to operate the machine safely may only use the machine under supervision or instruction by a responsible person.
