Manufacturing applications involve many different jobs, among them, is assembly, cutting, welding, grinding, painting, drilling and so on.
In this post, we will discuss how a pneumatic drill works and some of the technology used to make this technology easy, efficient and readily available at our fingertips.
A pneumatic drill, much as most air tools require of an air motor with parts such as rotor, rotor blades, cylinder, upper and lower plates as well as bearings.
These assembled parts work together to bring life to the tool. By propelling the air with its rotor blades, also known as banes, the motor creates the power that is transmitted through the rotor.
This rotor works in conjunction with the planetary gear system to convert the rpm’s from the tool and while creating torque and power reduces the RPMs to the chuck. The planetary gear is essentially the speed reduction and power multiplier mechanism.
By having this power multiplier mechanism FUJI ensures the tool retains power while running.
Then the power is transferred then transferred to the chuck. Through the chuck, the User is able to fit different sizes of drill bits and accessories in order to perform different tasks.
Let’s take the case of a FUJI AIR TOOLS drill model FRD-8PX-3, a heavy-duty industrial ½” drill. While the motor of this drill may be turning in excess of 10,000 rpm, the planetary gear mechanism will bring the rpm’s down to 900 rpm’s at the chuck. This particular drill actually has 2 sets of planetary gears in order to achieve power and reduce the RPMs.
As a result, it is one of the most robust and powerful yet compact ½” industrial heavy-duty pneumatic drills in the world.
Drills come in a variety of shapes and sizes, the most common type are the pistol type, followed by the angle drills and the corner drills.
You can see some examples of our Pneumatic Drills models here.
At TFT -PNEUMATIC we specialize in heavy-duty pneumatic tools. And as far as drills go, we have some of the most robust, long-lasting and powerful drills in the World. The drilling capacity range goes from 3/16” all the way up to 4” and Morse Tapper M.T. #1 trough M.T. #5. From 1.3 lbs of weight all the way to 95 lbs.
