How to calculate the speed or RPM on a magnetic drilling machine?

How to calculate the speed or RPM on a magnetic drilling machine?

The BDS magnetic drilling machines are provided with speed gears and the ProfiPLUS machines are also equipped with variable speed control. As per the diameter of the annular cutter and the type of annular cutter the speed of the magnetic drilling machine has to be set.

The formula for calculating the speed is:

d = diameter of the annular cutter in mm.

v = cutting speed of the annular cutters. See below chart for cutting speeds.

The alternative easy way to calculate the cutting speed is to use our automated RPM calculate on the website CLICK HERE or download our App CLICK HERE.

How to set the gears on the magnetic drilling machines?

How to set the gears on the magnetic drilling machines?

Once the speed or RPM has been calculated the next step is set the gears as per the RPM. BDS has in its range two gear and four gear machine.

Below is an example to set the gear on a four gear machine MAB 825:

The machine has a gearbox with four mechanical gear stages: The gear stage is selected by means of the two selector levers on the side of the gearbox.

To select the desired gear stage, set the two selector levers to the desired speed as shown in the table below with the machine switched off.

If calculated RPM is 360 RPM, then the machine should be set on the 3rd gear by setting the gear knob on left and right on two dots position. On ProfiPLUS machines the speedball can also be fine tuned with the help of the variable speed control.

NOTE:

If possible, always select a setting with low gear stage and high motor speed. The motor is thus set to high torque and protected against overheating under heavy load.

How to use the variable TORQUE CONTROL on the magnetic drilling machine?

How to use the variable TORQUE CONTROL on the magnetic drilling machine?

The BDS ProfiPLUS models MAB 525, 525SB, 825, 825V, 845 & 1300 are equipped with variable torque control.

The main purpose of the torque is for tapping or thread cutting where the need of speed is less and power is more. The torque delivers the power. More torque is more power.

As a thumb rule for drilling as well as for tapping keep the Torque control as maximum.

The other main advantage of the torque control is to protect the tool from brackage. In order to protect the tool, the maximum torque of the machine can be set using the controller. When the maximum set torque is reached, the machine switches off. After the cut-out, the machine must be switched off and then on again at the ON/OFF switch.

CAUTION

Do not use this function to switch off the machine when cutting threads in blind holes.

How to select TAPPING ADAPTERS?

How to select TAPPING ADAPTERS?

All BDS ProfiPLUS machines are equipped with reversible motors to perform tapping / thread cutting. As per the size of the thread the machine requires a tapping adapter.

Note: For each size a specific adapter is required. A single adapter can not be used for multiple thread sizes.

Following is the procedure:

1. Know the thread size to performed (example M16, M20, M30 or M42)

2. As per the thread size and the morse taper of the machine select the GSW Quick-change drill chucks.

3. Select the quick chnage insert for the thread size. For through holes use GSE Standard quick-change insert. For blind holes use GSS Quick-change insert with safety friction clutch. (Note: The GSS Quick-change insert with safety friction clutch can also be used for through hole tapping, but the GSE Standard quick-change insert can not be used for blind hole tapping)

4. Insert the GSW Quick-change drill chuck into the magnetic drilling machine. Then attach the quick-change insert in the Quick-change drill chuck and then insert the tap or thread cutting tool inside quick-change insert.

The above is a professional option for quick tapping. If, your requirement is to save money and not time then we recomend you an economical option for tapping adaptor with Weldon shank.

1. Select the TAP ADAPTER WITH WELDON SHANK as per the size of the thread.

2.Insert the tap or thread cutting tool in the tap adapter.

3. Insert the tap adpter in the machine.

Categories of BDS magnetic drilling machines?

How does a MAGNET INDICATOR of a magnetic drilling machine work?

BDS have mainly four categories of magnetic drilling machines.

1. ProfiPLUS

These machines are for drilling, tapping, countersink and reaming operations.

These machines have reversible motor. This is helpful for tapping (thread cutting), because you can use clockwise direction to make the tap and then after tap is finish you can change the motor direction to anti-clockwise and remove the tap without damaging the thread.

These machines also have variable torque control, which means motor power, its needed for tapping.

These machines have variable speed control required for drilling, tapping, countersink and reaming operations.

Also these machines are equipped with magnet indicator, carbon brush indicator, overload protection, friction clutch to avoid tool breakage, KEYLESS drill chuck for easy change of tool, etc.

Most important these machines have oil bath gearbox. This gearbox is very robust compared to grease gearbox of other machines.

2. ProfiSTART

These machines are for ONLY for drilling because they don’t have reversible motor and don’t have torque controls. Also these machines are equipped with magnet indicator, carbon brush indicator, Internal cabling, KEYLESS drill chuck for easy change of tool, etc. Most important these machines have oil bath gearbox. This gearbox is very robust compared to grease gearbox of other machines.

3. ProfiBASIC

These machines are for ONLY for drilling because they don’t have reversible motor and don’t have torque controls.

The difference between these machines and above ProfiSTART machines is that ProfiBASIC machines have grease gearbox, they do not have internal cabling, no KEYLESS drill chuck and no indicators. The purpose of these machine is to have an price economical magnetic drilling machine range.

These machines are good for regular use but for heavy duty use we recommend ProfiSTART.

4. ProfiSPEZIAL

What is the advantage of HSS Cobalt 8% core drills?

What is the advantage of HSS Cobalt 8% core drills?

The objective of this most recent product development at BDS was to produce a range of core drills optimised for power with greater heat resistance and better protection against wear. The desired results were achieved by an enhanced proportion of cobalt in special steel. Combined with speed-controlled BDS magnetic core drilling machines, these core drills are adapted for high loads in fine-grained steels and rust-proof materials. The core drills can be reground whilst retaining their positive product characteristics.The HSS Cobalt 8% core drills are made from M 42 steel.

M42 is a molybdenum-series high-speed steel alloy with an additional 8% or 10% cobalt. It is widely used in metal manufacturing industries because of its superior red-hardness as compared to more conventional high-speed steels, allowing for shorter cycle times in production environments due to higher cutting speeds or from the increase in time between tool changes. M42 is also less prone to chipping when used for interrupted cuts and costs less when compared to the same tool made of carbide. Tools made from cobalt-bearing high speed steels can often be identified by the letters HSS-Co. (Source: Wikipedia)

HSS Cobalt 8% Core drills are Harder, Stronger, Have more service life, Make more holes per cutter, etc.

What are hard coated annular cutters?

What are hard coated annular cutters?

The hard coated annular cutters are used for high heat resistance and extra finishing.

High-strength fully ground core drills that are machined under the effect of plasma with a hard coating in the range of 2.5 μ. As a result, these tools have considerably longer life and more uniform removal of chips, particularly with long drills.

What is an annular cutter?

What is an annular cutter?

An annular cutter (also called as core drill, core cutter, broach cutter, Trepanning drill or cup-type cutter) is a hollow, multiple cutting edges cutting tool used to make/drill holes in ferrous and non-ferrous metals. An annular cutter cuts only an annular groove at the periphery of the hole and leaves a solid core or slug at the hole center. [1] Annular cutter is a substitute for slower, more expensive and less efficient Twist drills and Hole saws. The function of Annular Cutters is more or less same as a hole saw but differs in geometry and material. Annular cutters are faster, easier and are more accurate than the conventional twist drills or drill bits.

An annular cutter or core drill removes the material from the metal to create cylindrical holes in a circular cross section. An annular cutter, unlike drill bits, cuts only on the periphery of the hole to be made. Annular cutters use almost the same method as concrete core drills, but are for metal drilling. An annular cutter is a multipoint cutting tool and is made from material like high speed steel and tungsten carbide tips.

Annular cutters are available in different sizes generally starting from diameter 12 mm (1/2’’) to 200 mm (7 7/8’’) and larger if required. The length of the annular cutter can be achieved depending upon the thickness of the material to be drilled. In the market the lengths 30 mm, 55 mm, 75 and 110 mm annular cutters are popularly available. These sizes though vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. The annular cutter’s material should be harder than the material to be drilled. Therefore there are various types of material used to manufacture annular cutters, for example different types HSS and TCT material. Annular cutters are also called as core drills because, after drilling hole, the drilled material is ejected from the cutter in the form of a cylindrical blank, this blank is called a core.

Advantages of annular cutters or core drills?

Advantages of annular cutters or core drills?

Time saving

As an annular cutter cuts only on the periphery of the hole to be made, it has to remove much less material as compared to conventional drill bits which cut and remove the complete material of the hole. Annular cutters are considered to be 3 to 4 times faster than conventional drill bits. Also while using a twist drill bit or metal hole saw one has to do pre-drilling and step-drilling operations for bigger diameter holes, whereas an annular cutter requires no pre-drilling and step-drilling. It is a one-shot drilling operation.

The annular cutters have less teeth and less wear, therefore with an annular cutter holes can be made at higher or faster cutting speed and a faster feed rate of the drilling machine.

Energy savings

Because annular cutters do not have to drill/cut through the complete work piece, they require less thrust and thus less energy to drill through material.[6]

More finishing

The hole made using an annular cutter is more finished, precise and accurate.

Easy

Due to the unique geometry of the annular cutters, making holes at awkward angles is also very easy.[6]

Efficient cooling

The cooling of annular cutters is internal. The internal lubrication is provided through a hole with the help of a pilot pin. Internal lubrication makes the annular cutter faster and more efficient for deep hole drilling.

Best for light duty machines

As the annular cutters require very low RPM (from min 50 RPM), these cutters can be easily used with light duty drilling machines or portable magnetic base drilling machines.[6]

150 mm dimater X 55 mm length TCT Core Drill

Sizes

Annular cutters biggest advantage is the variety of sizes. Annular cutters start from 12 mm diameter up to 150 mm diameter and more if required. Various cutting depth (length) of annular cutters can be sourced depending upon the requirement.

Re-sharpening

A HSS annular cutter can be easily re-sharpened on a grinding machine and can be re-used for drilling. Re-grinding can be done until the desired cutting length is available on the annular cutter.

HSS core drills V/S TCT core drills.

HSS core drills V/S TCT core drills.

Cost

HSS core drills are cheaper than the TCT core drills for smaller diameters up to 40 mm, while TCT core drills are cheaper than HSS for diameters above 41 mm.

Re-sharpening

Once the HSS cutter loses its sharpness, it can be re-ground on a grinding machine and can be used again. While, re-grinding the TCT core drill is possible but very difficult and time consuming.

Defect

The chances of defect in TCT core drills is more because the tungsten carbide tips are glued on the core drill and when the core drill falls down or crashes on the material, the chances tip breakage is more. A HSS cutter on the other hand a complete made of one material.

Speed

TCT cutter biggest advantage is speed and ease in which it may cut harder materials. Especially for larger diameter TCT core drills are very successful. While HSS core drills are good when drilling not very hard material and for small diameter hole sizes.

Hardness

Hardness of TCT core drills is more than the HSS core drills.
