What Are the Types and Applications of Drilling Machines?

What types of drilling machines are there?

A drilling machine (also known as a drilling machine) is an application for cutting holes in or out of metal, wood or other materials. While drilling machine is indispensable equipment for machinery manufacturing and various repair factories. According to the purpose and structure, it is mainly divided into the following categories:

  1. Portable drilling machine
    The portable drilling machines are used to drill small holes and are commonly used in the entire workshop. This type of drill machine is operated by holding in a hand and the workpiece where the hole is to be drilled is held in a vice.
  2. Sensitive drilling machine
    The table and spindle speed and feed mechanism can be moved vertically on the column for machining small and medium-size workpieces. Sensitive drilling machines are available in floor and table type; it can enable the operator to sensitively feel the pressure required for drilling and effectively adjust the applied pressure.
  3. Upright drilling machine
    This type of machine is used for drilling medium and large size holes which are larger in size and stronger compared with the sensitive drilling machine. There are differences between two types of upright drilling machines based on the type of column used including round column and box column.
  4. Radial drilling machine
    The spindle speed and feed mechanism can be moved on the radial arm, the radial arm can be rotated and lifted, and the workpiece will be fixed. It is suitable for processing large, heavy and porous workpieces, and is widely used in machinery manufacturing.
  5. Gang drilling machine
    The gang drilling machine can drill the same or different sizes of holes at the same time or different time due to it has a number of drill heads placed together. So the specialty of this machine tool is that it can drill a huge number of holes all in the same efficient job.
  6. Multiple spindle machine
    This type of machine tool is similar to the gang drilling machine, which can also drill the many holes at one time, but all the holes are in the same workpieces and numbers of similar jobs.
  7. Deep hole drilling machine
    A specialized machine tool that uses for deep hole drillings such as the deep holes of barrels and machine tool spindles. It is generally being a horizontal way to facilitate a large body and it is often with coolant inside.

What are the applications of drilling machines?

The drilling machine is widely being using in a different industry, including construction, medical equipment, transportation, and electronic equipment. Different kinds of drills are using in particular applications that can construct holes in numerous sizes in various kinds of materials. Furthermore, the capability of the drilling machine can also be different because of the spindle speed, spindle nose, spindle travel and electric motor used in the machine. So, it is extremely important to choose the right and suitable drill press that meet clients' demand to match the industry they are working in.

What Exactly is a Planning Machine?
In recent years, various industrially advanced countries have used machines to replace manpower for bench work, making the application of machine tools more extensive and important. Although the processing precision of milling machines and grinding machines is superior to that of planers, the price is more expensive than planers. Generally, small and medium-sized factories still use planers for many initial processing tasks in order to take into account equipment investment costs. So what exactly is a planer? Let's take a look together.

What is the Textile Industry?
The upstream of the textile industry chain is the petrochemical raw material. After being manufactured into nylon fiber, polyester fiber, rayon fiber, carbon fiber and other human fiber products, it is spun into yarn, then woven into cloth, and then bleached, dyed, printed, Dyeing and finishing procedures such as coating, finishing, tailoring and sewing into garment products or other related textile products. The textile manufacturing process can be divided into four stages: fiber, textile, dyeing and finishing, ready-to-wear/home textiles, among which textiles can be further divided into two steps: spinning and weaving: spinning is the transformation of roving into spun yarn. After being sent to the factory, the yarn is inserted into the operation axis of the textile machine table, and the textile machine table pulls the yarn upward and sends it to the textile machine; the next step is the weaving step, at this stage, the shuttle is used in the textile machine. It shuttles back and forth continuously, and finally weaves it into a piece of cloth. After finishing the cloth fabric (including cotton, wool, synthetic fiber, etc.) into a box, it can be sent to downstream manufacturers for post-processing to form a textile industry chain.
