Mag drill uses
Mag drill creates holes in any materials so that fabricators can bolt or screw two objects together. In some situations, a work piece can be ruined due to inaccurate drilling. Therefore to avoid mishaps, workers have to work carefully and slowly. This causes the workflow to slow down.
By using magnetism to keep drills in place, the magnetic drill solves this problem by increasing the job’s accuracy.
On metal works, fabricators mostly use mag drills. Some magnetic drills can bore holes in ceramics and glass. To secure the drill to the metal, metals are drawn to magnetic fields.
In onsite hole making, fabricators commonly use magnetic drill. When the fabricator cannot bring the work piece to a large drilling device, a portable mag drill is often used. Since the magnetic drill makes task less strenuous, the tool is commonly used for repetitive tasks.
For situations where fabricator needs to carry the drill around the work site and up the ladders, lightweight magnetic drills would be ideal.
3. Simultaneous tasks
More than one magnetic drill can be operated by fabricators at the same time. They use mag drills in functions such as countersinking, tapping, reaming, spot facing, and counter boring.
Countersinking is a kind of drilling that creates part of each hole wider than other parts of the hole. Spot facing creates a kind of hole with a round spot on the surface near the top of the hole. The process of cutting screw threads is termed as the tapping.
Hole widening is termed as reaming. For the hole to take in a flat head screw, counter boring is done. For drilling very large diameter holes, engineers create some portable mag drills.
In situations where accuracy is important, fabricators use magnetic drills. Swivel mag drills specifically allow for rotating around an axis, precise drilling, and reaching hard-to-reach areas and crevices. The fabricator can lock the drill in with the magnet once he has correctly placed the drill.
In situations wherein the drill must not fail, the use of a magnetic drill would be ideal since it is durable. A mag drill increases the lifespan of the cutter and the drill.
