In Detail

Engineer Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

The SB-250 floor pillar drill is an extremely robust 25mm (max. capacity in steel) drill. It is designed for large engineering and production tasks and is capable of being used for prolonged periods. Very heavily built and manufactured to exceptionally accurate tolerances, this pillar drill will stand up to hard work every day. The headstock has been machined to precisely match the quill housing, virtually eliminating any spindle run-out, even at full quill extension. Because the column is surface ground, the table rise and fall is super smooth in operation, making table height adjustment a light task. The high torque 1,500W motor drives the spindle via a 6-speed belt drive (255,400,470,1120,1340,2020 rpm), with machined steel pulleys eliminating vibration. This machine is also fitted with a quill downfeed system, controlling the downfeed speed in relation to the spindle speed selected. There is a choice of four ratios giving the operator the ability to select a downfeed speed suitable for the task in hand. You can also use the normal downfeed handles for hand controlled drilling. Safety is provided for by a solidly made chuck guard, electrically interlocked, as is the belt cover. A large emergency stop button, which locks closed automatically, completes the picture. Lighting is provided by an LED lamp with a flexible stem for ease of placement. This is a high quality floor pillar drill, designed to meet the demands of medium engineering and production workshops, and very useful if you constantly drill large batch productions. Please note, 16A supply required.
