3 Metalworking Site Essentials
The Magnetic Drill.
Magnetic drills are a revelation on construction sites, especially where there’s a need for portable and precise drilling in metalwork. These drills utilize a magnetic base, enabling them to cling to a metal surface, even upside down, allowing for stable, precise, and efficient drilling or cutting.
With options for Low Profile drills, for tight spaces, as well as permanent magnet and automatic options, modern magnetic drills are a critical part of high-performance metal cutting.
- Enhanced Precision: The fixed magnet base reduces the risk of slipping, providing highly accurate holemaking.
- Portability: Compact design allows use in various environments, especially in remote or confined spaces.
- Safety: The magnetic base provides stability, reducing accidents related to shifting or slipping during operation.
The Annular Cutter.
Annular cutters, known for their efficiency in creating accurate, bur-free holes, are specially designed to remove only the material at the periphery of the hole, optimizing the drilling process by leaving the centre as a solid slug. This process is typically more efficient than twist drilling as less material is removed in the process, whilst also producing a high degree of accuracy.
- Efficient Cutting: They cut only at the edge of the hole, reducing the amount of material displaced, which requires less force and time.
- Smooth Holes: Produce accurate, bur-free holes, reducing the need for further finishing.
- Versatility: Available in various sizes and materials, they can be used with different kinds of magnetic drills.
The Chop Saw.
Chop saws are powerful tools designed for making straight, quick cuts in a variety of materials, they’re ideal for quickly making cuts in a variety of metals, producing cool cuts with our specialist Rotabroach sawblades.
- Power and Speed: Their high horsepower and rotational speed make them perfect for swift, heavy-duty cutting.
- Precision: Ability to make straight, clean cuts with accuracy.
- Versatility: With the right blade, they can cut through metal, wood, or plastic
What Does a Site Tool Need?
On-site metalworking involves working with tough materials; construction steel, stainless steel and a range of alloys can all pose a challenge during projects. With powerful, efficient tools, you’re able to get through difficult materials quickly, without risking safety or performance.
Construction and engineering projects are often faced with tight deadlines and large quantities of holemaking, fabrication and other processes throughout work. Having tools that get the job done quickly, without compromising on quality and performance, is absolutely key to completing projects on time and up to standard.
If a tool doesn’t last long enough, or can’t stand up to a difficult worksite environment, power and speed means little. Having cutting tools that can last hole after hole, or machines built to withstand the challenges of a busy worksite, is absolutely crucial to getting the job done.
