Drills come in different sizes and configurations from small benchtop models to the larger industrial machine drills that we stock on our showroom floor at Sterling Machinery Exchange and Fabrication.
The type of drill you need depends on the application and the materials being drilled. The most popular drills we showcase are floor drills, multi-head drills, geared floor drills and radial drills.
Floor Drill Press Machine
A floor drill, also known as a drill press, is a stationary power tool used for drilling holes in various materials such as wood, metal, plastic, and more. Floor drills are commonly used in workshops, manufacturing plants, and DIY projects where precision and accuracy are required. They offer greater stability and accuracy than the handheld drills and allow for more consistent and repeatable drilling. Additionally, floor drills can be equipped with various attachments and accessories, such as sanding drums, mortising attachments, and tapping heads, which make them versatile tools for a wide range of applications.
Multi Head Drill/ Multiple Spindles
A multi-head drill, also known as a multi-spindle drill, is a drilling machine that has multiple drill heads mounted on a single base. Multi-head drills are commonly used in manufacturing and production environments where drilling multiple holes quickly and accurately is required. Each drill head is independently adjustable and can be positioned at different angles and distances from each other allowing the machine to drill multiple holes simultaneously both increasing productivity and efficiency. When drilling multiple holes quickly and accurately is necessary, the multi head drill is perfect for the job. Multi head drills are used with a wide range of materials, including metal, plastic, wood, and composites. Multi-head drills are available in different configurations, including fixed and adjustable spindle distances, and can be operated manually or through computer numerical control (CNC) systems for increased precision and automation.
Radial Drill Machine
A radial drill, also known as a radial arm drill, is another large drilling machine that has a long arm that can be rotated around a vertical column. Radial drills are commonly used in industries such as metalworking, construction, and manufacturing. Radial drills also come in different sizes and configurations. The radial drill is primarily used for drilling large and heavy workpieces that cannot be moved easily. The arm is typically supported by a column or a pillar, and it can be moved up and down to adjust the drilling height, and drill holes at different angles. They are used to drill holes in various materials, including metal, wood, and plastic. Radial drills can be used for a wide range of applications, including drilling, tapping, reaming, countersinking, and boring.
Geared Head Floor Drills
Geared floor drills are commonly used in industrial settings, such as manufacturing, construction, and metalworking, where precision drilling and heavy-duty operations are required. They are available in a range of sizes and capacities, with varying motor power, drilling speed, and drilling capacity. Some models may also include features such as automatic feeds, coolant systems, and laser guides for increased precision and efficiency. Essentially, the geared floor drills are a reliable and versatile tool for drilling large and complex workpieces, making them a valuable addition to any industrial workshop or fabrication facility.
