More flexible than the pillar drill
Advantages of a drill stand compared to a pillar drill
A pillar drilling machine or column drilling machine is used as a stationary device to drill holes precisely and exactly perpendicular to the material surface. However, the construction method imposes certain restrictions on the possible applications. In addition, these stationary machines sometimes take up considerable space in the workshop. This is where the drill stand for the cordless drill/driver comes into its own - it saves space and is much more flexible.
The basic function of a pillar drill is also provided by the drill stand: Precise vertical drilling. Since a drilling machine is usually already available, the drill stand offers significant cost savings. By using accessories such as coordinate tables, stop rails, end stops, machine vices and clamping plates, vertical drilling can also be carried out even faster, safer and more accurately.
Drilling at an angle to the material surface is effortless with a swivelling drill stand. You do not have to build any elaborate auxiliary constructions or jigs to align the workpiece at an angle, as is necessary with the pillar drilling machine. The drill rig is a mobile tool: it can be used not only in the workshop, but also for interior work and on the construction site. Vertical as well as inclined drilling is thus always and everywhere possible. In addition, this mobility also enables drilling in the centre of large workpieces (e.g. wood-based panels), where pillar drilling machines quickly reach their limits due to the clearance widths.
Our drill stands come from respected manufacturers - Famag, Wabeco, Mafell - whose names stand for quality: innovative solutions, precise manufacturing, first-class workmanship and long service life.
