Walter Surface Technologies recently unveiled its newly redesigned ICECUT 100 and ICECUT 200 magnetic drills, providing unrivalled safety and reliability thanks to the inclusion of such state-of-the-art technologies as a pressure indicator and material and thickness detector.
The major advantages of the two new models are:
They are safe and reliable. The drills include the ACCUDRILL safety amp meter, redesigned for heavy-duty applications and conveniently located in the central control panel. This technology allows users to achieve the most productive drilling operation, as it prevents the motor from overloading and overheating. In addition, the included material and thickness detector prevents the drill from starting when the magnetic holding power is insufficient to secure the unit to the workpiece and operate safely.
They are portable and lightweight. Designed for off-site drilling, the ICECUT 100 is the most compact and portable unit on the market today. It weighs 22 pounds and is the only lightweight, mobile system that can provide both maximum cutting efficiency and safety, with 850 watts of power and 600 RPMs. The ICECUT 200, engineered for heavy-duty applications, provides unparalleled performance and versatility when compared to other magnetic drilling units. It weighs 27 pounds and operates at both 300 and 600 RPMs, allowing users to cut smaller and larger holes with precision.
The total package
Together, these features make a state-of-the-art drill that provides users with production and labour savings.
“In recent years, the market has been shifting towards lightweight magnetic drills,” explains Stephane Drainville, product manager for Walter. “The ICECUT 100 and 200 magnetic drills are the most versatile units available today. They provide the safest way to drill large holes, regardless of user experience. This results in a lower production and labour costs.”
