FEIN launches metal core drill with pioneering power-to-weight ratio

01 May 2022

Leading power tools and accessories manufacturer, FEIN, has revealed plans to launch its brand new KBE 32 metal core drill this summer, to the UK’s metalworking market.

Operating heavy machinery in confined spaces is a reality many metalworkers face daily, making already laborious tasks considerably more challenging. For this very reason, FEIN developed the KBE 32, a small and compact but powerful mag drill, designed to improve productivity by speeding up installation on-site.

With a 1200-watt high-power motor reliable for drilling holes up to 32 mm, FEIN’s new KBE 32 metal core drill is the most powerful tool in its class. The KBE 32 is the first tool ever to combine a weight of 10.8 kg with 1200-watt, offering a revolutionary power-to-weight ratio with high magnetic holding force, ensuring hard work is easy yet safe with optimum accessibility for tight spaces.

“We’re expecting the KBE 32 to rapidly become a market leader, thanks to its ground-breaking economical design. Equipped with innovative FEIN technology, the tool is the first of its kind in terms of both weight and functionality.

“Easy to use, robust and compact enough to fit into small spaces, the KBE 32 will make the perfect aid for the steel metal industry,” comments Andy Mills, managing director, FEIN UK.

FEIN’s ethos is very much rooted in providing solutions for end users with innovation firmly at its heart. The foundation of each and every one of its power tools has been manufactured with efficiency and reliability firmly front of mind, to help resolve the everyday problems those in the metalworking sector face.

With over 150 years’ experience in manufacturing power tools, FEIN has a proud history of innovation and provides high levels of support to dealers, along with application-based solutions for end-users in the metalworking and construction sectors.

“At FEIN, we pride ourselves on our application-based approach and providing trusted consultancy to our customers, which ultimately enables them to source the best solution for the job.

“The KBE 32 has been designed with this very same philosophy in mind. It has been developed with a real focus on accessibility – from each a size, weight and controls standpoint, each of which were key priorities throughout the entire R&D (research and development) process. It can also be quickly deployed overhead as needed. Furthermore, it’s been built to stand the test of time, while its mechanical components have been designed for up to 70,000 drill holes,” concludes Andy.
