High speed mag drill increases tool life for carbide cutters

November 14, 2018 - Hougen Manufacturing Inc., Swartz Creek, Michigan, has released a new model of portable magnetic drill, the HMD906.  This new model is a high-speed mag drill designed to take full advantage of carbide annular cutters. Carbide tooling is more effective at drilling holes when turned at a higher RPM, and that’s just what the HMD906 does. With the high torque, high RPM motor, the HMD906 cuts holes more efficiently with carbide then standard mag drills.

The HMD906 is available with one of two different arbor configurations. The new arbor uses the tool-less quick change system for rapidly switching out different sizes of cutters that utilize the Fusion2™ or one-touch shank. The second arbor takes advantage of more tool life using the rigid two flat cutter mounting system. Powering the drill is a proprietary two speed Hougen motor. The two speeds help maximize tool life and increases torque when using larger diameter cutters. The addition of a two stage magnet increases magnetic holding power by 30 percent when the drill motor is turned on. This saves energy and increases magnet life.

The HMD906 has many additional features that make the drill easier to use; an integrated coolant bottle which is conveniently located and does not add to the width of the drill, a more robust housing design with an ergonomic carrying handle, a spot to

hold the hex wrench, reversible feed handles and a d-ring on the back of the magnet for quickly attaching the safety chain. The drill also includes positive slug ejection and a carrying case. A swivel base magnet is also available for added versatility.

The HMD906 weighs just 35 lbs., measures 22-13/16 in. H by 7-11/16 in. W by 11-3/4 in. long and provides drilling capacities from 7/16 in. up to 2 in. (12-50mm) diameter and 2 in. (50mm) depth of cut. The drill has an electrical rating of 10A and 350/650 RPM motor.

For safety the HMD906 incorporates Hougen’s exclusive features to insure a safe work environment—including a no-adjustment safety switch, which shuts down the drill motor if lift of the magnetic base is detected...plus an LED indicator that monitors this sensor and alerts if an unsafe operational condition exists. A two stage power on switch prevents drill rotation unless the magnet has first been engaged, and, in the case of a power interruption, safety circuitry will keep the drill motor off after power is restored until the start button is manually depressed. The HMD906 is made in USA.
