High Power, Lightweight Portable Magnetic Drilling

Booth S-2212: The HMD927 Power Feed Two-Speed Portable Magnetic Drill from Hougen can drill holes up to 1-5/8 in diameter with a great power-to-weight ratio that gives steel fabricators more strength and torque while still maintaining a small lightweight footprint.
Hougen showcases the power feed HMD927 portable magnetic drill and the redesigned HMD904 portable magnetic drill.

Thermal Drilling Saves Time and Money

Booth S-2222: The  thermal drilling process produces joints that are as strong or stronger as the equivalent diameter welded nut for a big savings in time, labor and material costs.
Formdrill will demonstrate the thermal drilling process that results in joints that are as strong or stronger as the equivalent diameter welded nut. 

Portable Magnetic Drill Increases Productivity

A new two stage magnet increases the magnetic holding power by 30 percent when the drill motor of the HMD904 is turned on, saving energy and increasing magnet life. A new arbor system utilizes a 5/8 in slot drive for more rigidity, hole accuracy and quicker use of accessories such as drill chucks and tapping attachments. The drill now has 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 completely redesigned HMD904 Magnetic Drill from Hougen adds major improvements and more features to its powerful performance, lightweight size, small footprint and hole capacity.
