Portable Drill uses laser for alignment.

Press Release Summary:



Model PDL-24 has integrated laser that indicates actual lineal location of centerline of drill bit. Once operator establishes desired lineal location, it is locked into position for drilling. Rack and pinion positioning system moves drill to desired location or gage. This concept eliminates manual layout. System is adaptable to web and flanges of all structural shapes such as beams, columns, channels, angles, and rectangular tubes.



Original Press Release:


Peddinghaus Corporation Portable Drill Line Model PDL-24


Peddinghaus Corporation of Bradley, Illinois recently announced their new portable drill line. This new patented product, the PDL-24, offers a unique mobile concept where the drill quickly adjusts to the structural section to be drilled and easily rolls down the length of the member with minimal operator effort. This innovative concept eliminates manual layout, which is generally considered the most expensive and involved process. It also reduces material handling by using the concept of bringing the tool to the work rather than moving the member to the tool.

The system is complete with an integrated laser that is used to indicate the actual lineal location of the centerline of the drill bit. Once the operator establishes the desired lineal location, it is quickly locked into position for drilling. Once locked into the desired lineal position, the operator uses a rack and pinion positioning system to locate the drill to the desired location or gage.

The drill is equipped with a solenoid activated coolant system for through-the-tool cooling to achieve the optimum tool life.

The system is equally adaptable to process both web and flanges of all structural shapes such as beams, columns, channels, angles and rectangular tubes.
