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.

Second-hand column or pillar drill

What is a pillar drill used for?

Pillar drills, column drills and bench drills can be used by relatively untrained staff if they have been instructed accordingly. Working on a pillar drill or bench drill is very uncomplicated and requires only an understanding of safe working practices. One of the most important aspects is to ensure the workpiece is properly fixed in position. Wearing appropriate protective equipment is also crucial when using a column or pillar drill. Since drilling is essentially a cutting task, appropriate eye protection should also be worn. However, gloves should not be worn. Thorough safety training is thus required for all staff working on a pillar drilling machine or column drill.

Buying used pillar drills and column drills

Pillar drilling machines are used to drill precise countersunk holes in metal sheets, plates or blocks. These machines are highly precise and very safe to work on. Once the workpiece has been attach to the column drill’s work table, practically nothing can go wrong in the drilling procedure. A column/pillar drill only operates in one direction. This makes them very sturdy and long-lasting. They only have one moving axis - the Z-axis - which travels downwards. Column drills are operated by hand, which precludes excessively fast feeding. This makes used pillar drills very popular. The column drills available on the second-hand market - often industrial pillar drills - are snapped up very quickly by both private and professional users.

Buying second-hand machinery risk-free?

The simple design of pillar drills means these machines rarely exhibit more than minor wear and tear. However, defects in the electronics, drive, gears or guidance systems can make second-hand column drills unusable. As such, pillar drills for sale should be comprehensively checked before purchase, which is not always possible in the case of on-site second-hand purchases or auctions. A used pillar drilling machine is best purchased from a professional used machinery dealer.
