High-performance pillar drills, designed to meet the exacting needs of the modern engineering and manufacturing industries.

Colchester’s range of pillar drills are known for their robustness and long-life cycle, designed to prevent vibrations and noise. Generous safety factors ensure resistance to material fatigue even after 20 years.

These machines are heavier than competitors, reflecting their substantial build quality and superior performance.

Drill housings feature thick walls and large casting radii made from high-strength, dampening materials, ensuring consistent heat balance during continuous industrial use.

The pillars have larger diameters, thicker walls, and a solid inner centre bar, ensuring a torsion-free, right-angled head construction and effective vibration dampening.

Drives are designed for long service life and smooth operation, with larger bearing combinations, high-quality V-belt drives, and optimized gear drives to minimize wear.
