STRANDS S40 has a drilling capacity of 40mm. The gear box is built according to our experienced methods for highest possible torque. The drill head is fixed on top of the column. The table arm is adjustable 360° around the column and can be raised and lowered.

STRANDS S40M: When the set drill depth is reached, the spindle will automatically return to the starting point. The feed can also be interrupted manually. The feed gear box is provided with an automatic overload protection device, which intervenes, when the drill pressure is too high.

STRANDS S40ME: Start / Stop of the automatic feed are handled by buttons at the top of the feed lever. Hand and automatic reversing for tapping are standard.
