Suhner has introduced the EconoMaster line of drilling units, affordably priced at under $3000 for the basic unit, in stock for immediate delivery or customizable to suit the particular operation. This economical solution is ideal for multiple materials such as light metal, wood, composite, plastic and foam, the company says.
Because these units are entirely produced at the Suhner factory in Rome, Ga., response times for delivery and customized construction are very fast, according to Sales Manager Lee Coleman. “We recognized the need to bring our global technology to a local level, here in America, and the EconoMaster is a key step in that process.”
Suhner is based in Brugg, Switzerland with plants and distribution centers worldwide.
The EconoMaster drilling unit features low power and air consumption, adjustable motor housing, adjustable total stroke up to 4”, hydraulic feed control cylinder, J33 taper spindle end, 0-1/2” drill chuck, electric front & rear position limit switches, belt tensioner and chrome-plated quill.
