Unlike column drilling machines box column drilling Machine
have a box-shaped foot stand. They are produced as horizontal or vertical drilling machines. Another feature is the on fixed stand height-adjustable working table that can be additionally supported as well. As a result, these machines are also suitable for heavy work pieces and for holes with larger diameters. Larger box column drill presses have a machine table that is fixed mounted on the machine base. By this construction the main spindle housing is displaceable in height. The corresponding spindle speeds are comparable to those generated by column type drill press and are e. g. generated by manual- or continuously variable drives.
