Core drilling produces large holes quickly with high precision, even through thick materials. With no pre-drilling or re-tooling required, core drilling can finish the job in half the time of twist drilling
Pittsburgh, Pa. (Vocus) December 2, 2009
Core drilling—a process that’s quieter, more accurate and 40 percent faster than traditional twist drilling—is at its best with the new line of KBM magnetic core drills from FEIN Power Tools Inc. (http://www.feinus.com). These tools feature carbide drill bits that last longer and perform up to 30 percent faster than traditional bits. What’s more, FEIN high power motors with sustained performance and an optimum power-to-weight ratio deliver unrivaled efficiency and drilling power.
“Since inventing the electric handheld drill more than 140 years ago, FEIN engineers have been developing power tools that prove their worth under the toughest continuous use by craftsmen and industrial operations,” said Vince Grlovich, vice president of sales, FEIN Power Tools, Inc. “Our latest magnetic core drills are no exception. Robustly designed and easy to handle, FEIN core drills deliver precision drilling results that make metalworking professionals’ jobs easier.”
With three models to choose from—including the FEIN KBM 32 Q, KBM 52 U and KBM 50 QX—the KBM line can satisfy the requirements of virtually any core drilling application. The new QuickIN change system developed by FEIN makes changing tools on all core drilling systems easy, since they are equipped with a robust, accurate, dual dovetail guide. An electronic cutout mechanism is automatically triggered when the drilling pressure is too high, enhancing safety and protecting the motor and tool. Magnetic feet are sized so the machines use less space. Up to 2,420 pounds of holding force makes overhead core drilling safe. The FEIN Magnet Monitor System ensures long life for the magnetic coils.
The KBM 32 Q core drilling system is ideal for diameters from 1/2” to 1 1/4”, with a 700 watt motor and load speeds of up to 400 RPM. The KBM 50 QX drills up to 2 1/16 inches and includes a two-speed gearbox for efficient drilling on site—the two mechanical speed levels enable an expanded range of application and uses, such as reaming and countersinking. The KBM 52 U serves diameters up to 2 1/16”, and an MK 3 fitting allows use of any tool with a taper holder. Threads up to 7/8” are easily tapped with the reverse function and the rapid chuck change. A two-gear transmission delivers optimum speed, even with heavy loads. For special applications—such as reaming and countersinking—the speed is adjusted electronically. The “Memory Function” operation developed by FEIN engages a preset reduced speed on machine start-up, making serial production easier. The KBM 52 U can be operated comfortably with one hand. The drilling point requires no lubrication, thanks to the gravity-fed cooling lubricant unit that guarantees economic dosing.
“Core drilling produces large holes quickly with high precision, even through thick materials. With no pre-drilling or re-tooling required, core drilling can finish the job in half the time of twist drilling,” Grlovich said. “FEIN has been developing machines, bits and accessories for professional core drilling in metal for more than 20 years. The new KBM line—the culmination of that work—are the toughest and most efficient core drills on the market.”
