Diversified machine tooling company Rothenberger has launched German manufacturer of drilling and countersinking tools Ruko’s magnetic-stand drilling machines into the South African market.
The machines make horizontal, vertical and overhead drilling possible and their compact, light construction makes them versatile and easily portable. The machines can be used in steel construction, industrial building, engineering, terotechnology, shipbuilding, bridge construction, crane building and assembly work in metalworking shops.
Ruko’s angle core drilling machine models RS4 and RS5e allow for optimal use in cramped spaces like iron girders, narrow steel structures and lorry frames. The light weight of just 10 kg and the ergonomically formed handles make it easier to work with and to transport.
The magnetic-stand drilling machine RS10 model allows use of core drills of up to 35 mm, while the RS20 allows use of up to 60 mm and the RS30e up to 100 mm. The model offers a powerful motor with full wave electronics for speed control, as well as a mechanical slip clutch for motor and gearbox overload protection.
Features of the machine include the mounting of the handle on either side, making it suitable for left- or right-hand operation; the six-point attachment of the drill onto the sled, which ensures a sturdy connection between the drill stand and high-performance motor; and the defined feed of cooling lubricant that guarantees a clean cut and long service life of the tools.
Ruko’s core drills offer increased cutting performance and huge savings in both cost and time.
The range includes core drills made of heavy-duty high-speed steel, suitable for cutting light metals, and tungsten carbide core drills, which are particularly suited for heavier metals, such as railway tracks, cast iron and stainless steel. The blade geometry of the core drill allows upward chip removal, while the spring-loaded pilot pin facilitates the removal of the cutout.
