20Jan94 UK: UNIVERSAL MAGNETIC DRILL PLAYS IT SAFE - AIRBOR.

Compressed air actuation means that the Airbor magnetic drill stand is safe for use in hazardous environments where there is an explosion risk.The permanent magnet used inside the stand has a clamping force of 650 kg and has a fail-safe operation so that it continues to work in the event of an air line failure.Powered by twin pneumatic motors developed specifically for this machine, the Airbor can cut diameters of up to 52 mm by 50 mm deep. An interlock isolates the air motor when the air supply is restored.Other safety features include a non-spark resistant body, anti-static piping and internal switching to reduce the chance of pipe joint failure.
