New MiniBeast™ Innovations Part Three - MiniBeast™ Curve for Drilling Pipes, Convex and Concave Surfaces

POSTED BY David McFadden / 28th April 2020

MiniBeast Curve™ - A magnetic drill capable drilling holes in pipes, convex and concave surfaces

Whilst it is perfect for site drilling, with it's customer driven features, here at JEI we wanted to enhance it's capabilities to make it a more suitable fit for more applications

By listening to our customers and end user comments, we realised that just one machine couldn't bridge this gap, so we've created a whole family of options to solve multiple hole making challenges

Over a series of posts, we'll be talking about what's new in the MiniBeast™ family.

Part 3 - MiniBeast™ Curve

On many occasions, a magnetic drill is required to cut holes on round surfaces. Whilst there are a number of ways the steel fabricator has achieved this thorough there own ingenuity, such as tack welding a piece of c section to the pipe, to make a table for the magnetic drill, nothing is as effective as a customised solution, to safe time and money.

For this purpose, we developed the MiniBeast Curve.

Featuring 4, 2 way permanent magnets, the machine can easily be positioned and clamped to pipes or convex surfaces with a minimum radius of 150 mm / 300 mm OD, or to inside convex surfaces with a minimum radius of 500 mm.

The MiniBeast Curve incorporates all the standard characteristics of the MiniBeast, including internal coolant system, hidden motor cable and self correcting motor slides and is designed to cut holes up to 35 mm diameter on a 19 mm (3/4") Shank, with annular cutters such as JEI's HSS type Turbo Steel or TCT Type Turbo Tough
