FEIN has earned a reputation for producing innovative products over the last 140-plus years. It’s no surprise, then, that the leading provider of industrial power tools is the brains behind the world’s first hand-held core drilling system for metal — the FEIN KBH 25.
The hand-held core drilling system, in fact, possesses many unique features that make it a powerful tool for metalworkers that offers time and money savings when compared to conventional drilling methods.
New drilling technology
The KBH 25 enables fast, flexible operation thanks to new drilling technology that combines the advantage of a high performance drill and carbide-tipped core bits in a single system. The technology enables rapid work progress with less effort, and allows users to work up to five times faster when core drilling.
Special tooth geometry
The system features tungsten carbide bits with special tooth geometry consisting of three different cutting teeth. This reduces the feed force and contact pressure, and results in cutting that is free of vibration and extremely fast.
The KBH 25 is constructed from the highest quality materials and workmanship, which contributes to its long service life.
The unit features FEIN’s wrench-free QuickIN PLUS fast change system, which guarantees easy exchange of bits.
The KBH 25 is capable of drilling holes up to one inch in diameter in steel, and up to 3⁄4-inch thick when using FEIN carbide bits. When using carbide hole saws, it is capable of drilling holes up to 2-1⁄8 inches in diameter in steel, and up to 5/32 inches thick.
The system works on all common metals, as well as curved, painted and uneven surfaces, in tight or hard-to-reach areas. It is designed to replace (or be used in combination with) stationary core drills and conventional twist drills in such applications as vehicle or trailer construction, fabricating, structural steel, ship building, and other metal work.
The KBH 25 is lightweight at just 7.3 lbs., resulting in less user fatigue. In addition, its design features a torque slip clutch, which ensures safety when the tool is overloaded.
