Drills and their applications vary greatly. A drill is an industrial tool that can drill round holes into surfaces with a rotating motion. The type of drill used will depend on the purpose for which you need it. Drills are a valuable piece of machinery to any toolkit and always come in handy. Drills are made up of a variety of essential parts. The base of the drill is normally bolted to the ground or surface to stabilize the drill while drilling. The column, situated on the base, normally has a sliding table mounted to it and is where the drill arm and head are affixed. The drill arm, situated at the top of the column, holds the drill head and the cover of the driving mechanism. The drill head itself incorporates the feed and driving mechanism as well. The work table is found affixed to the column and can move both vertically and horizontally. There is also a feed mechanism where one can feed the material by hand or driven by an electric motor in some instances. A spindle holds the drilling tool and revolves in place, and there is also a chuck on the spindle which secures the drill rig. Though this is the general design of most drills, the type of drill will differ depending on your needs. Mican Industrial will have the industrial tools that you need.

It is operated by a universal motor and it is best that the object to be drilled to be secured in a vice. Automatic drilling machines are also very useful in that they operate automatically to get the drilling exactly right, taking into account the positioning, the feed, clamping, etc. The effect of an automatic drilling machine is that numerous automatic drills can be operated by one person, increasing productivity. The bench drilling machine, also known as the sensitive machine, is a widely known drill and is commonly seen in the manufacturing industry. Designed with a base, spindle, work table, drill head, column, and driving mechanism, it can drill smaller holes at high speeds. It is positioned and affixed to a bench to perform the drilling and can also perform several cutting operations, such as boring or taping. The pillar drill machine is commonly used for drilling medium to large holes in metal and wood. It is an upright drilling machine, being able to drill bigger holes in materials, with more power, than the smaller types of drills. A radial drilling machine is equipped with a radial arm that can move the drill on a vertical axis, and lower, raise or rotate it. The operator need not move the material as the spindle can be positioned directly over it. It is capable of making angular and intersecting holds and is typically used in manufacturing for larger drilling purposes and larger holes. A gang drilling machine is used to drill successive holes in a workpiece. It is a drilling machine with multiple drill heads and columns mounted onto a platform and is operated by moving the machine back and forth. Its applications vary including reaming, drilling, taping, and counter-drilling. A multi-spindle drilling machine is also used to drill multiple holes. It is designed with several drill heads affixed to a circular plate and is powered by one motor. The benefit of this multi-spindle drilling machine is that it increases productivity in that it can drill several holes at the same time. A deep hole drilling machine is a very large industrial tool and is used in heavy-duty applications, able to drill deep holes into spindles and connecting rods, etc. Not only is it able to make much deeper holes than other drills, but its hole diameter is also much wider as well, drilling with less feed and at high speeds.
