Definition: Pillar or Column Drilling Machines

Column drilling machines and pillar drilling machines are also called bench drills or drill presses. They belong to the most widespread industrial machines. To this day, they are indispensable for fast and precise repair work. While column drilling machines are well suited for small to medium-sized workpieces, the stable pillar drilling machines are also used for heavy drilling processes. The individual drilling performance of a drilling machine varies depending on its column diameter, table size, spindle capacity, rotation speeds and feed rate. At Surplex you will find reasonably priced and resilient used drilling machines from top manufacturers such as ALZMETALL, FLOTT, IXION or GILLARDON!

Explanation of the terms ‘pillar drills and bench drills’

A pillar drill or column drilling machine is rarely used to drill columns or pillars. The names given to these industrial machines, also known as column drills and bench drilling machines, are based on their design. A pillar or column drill is used to manually drill holes in metal panels, blocks, boards and woods. The bench drill is a standard tool to be found in every industrial operation. It is used for quick, small-scale processing jobs.

Pillar drilling machines and bench drills - Design and method of operation

How does a pillar drill work? The difference between pillar drills and column drills is that the former is a stand-alone piece of equipment while the latter is attached to a work table. Neither vary when it comes to design and working procedures. They both comprise a drilling head under which is attached a drill.

A small work table with fastening elements serves to hold the workpiece in place. The drilling procedure is initiated manually and a lever or hand wheel is used to move the drill towards the workpiece. A pillar or bench drill therefore drills in a downward direction. Pivoting movements are generally not possible when using such a table drilling machine.

Areas of application for pillar drill and bench drills

What is a pillar drill? What are the uses of pillar drilling machine? These types of drill are not normally used for serial production, but if they are, it is mostly for retouching. If the operator forgot to programme in a drill hole for a particular batch of parts, this can be performed retrospectively by a pillar or bench drilling machine. The deburring of untidy holes is also a frequent application for these manual machines. However, for serial production, automatic drilling machines are primarily used.
