DDM1 Diamond Drilling Machine

Marcrist Unveils Lighter, More Flexible Drilling Machine For Pro's

Marcrist International has announced the addition of the DDM1 to its Diamond Drilling Machine range.

The new unit is a lightweight (4kg), compact, multi-functional diamond drilling machine that sits alongside Marcrist's existing dedicated diamond drilling machines and rigs.

The DDM1 has been especially developed for the trade professional who needs to drill occasional holes for pipes and boiler flues, but would prefer to invest in a more flexible machine that can also be used to undertake general drilling with smaller diameter drill bits in the Jacobs chuck. The machine is also supplied with a direct drive adaptor for dry diamond cores, should the tradesman wish to use the machine as a full time dedicated diamond drilling machine.

A selectable percussion action makes the multi-functional DDM1 machine perfect for drilling smaller diameter holes with masonry bits, and provides impressive performance when used with Marcrist's new PC850 diamond percussion cores.

The DDM1 has been extensively tested with Marcrist cores and has proved to offer exceptional levels of durability and reliability.

The powerful 1200W motor with soft start and constant power control provides plenty of progressive power for effortless diamond drilling, whilst the durable 2-speed metal gearbox with pressure trigger provides continuously variable speed (0-1500 RPM and 1500 – 3000 RPM), allowing the user to select the optimum speed for the smallest and largest diamond cores

"Our new DDM1 makes a great addition to our diamond drilling machine range," said Mario Halbeisen, International Sales and Marketing Director at Marcrist. "The current Marcrist range provides unbeatable performance and value for money, but this lighter more flexible machine gives the range another dimension - it's the machine electricians and plumbers have been looking for, and when used with our new PC850 percussion cores the performance is astounding."

To ensure safety of the operator DDM1 is fitted with a mechanical safety clutch and electronic override protection, critical to avoiding being thrown by a diamond core that snags in the hole. Safety is further enhanced by the addition of a vibration dampered side handle with an extension bar to improve posture whilst drilling.

The new DDM1 machine, which is supplied in a blow moulded case, is available in both 240V & 110V.

Marcrist International is a manufacturer of premium diamond products, supplying innovative solutions that carry performance and money back guarantees, allowing customers to 'experience the difference' with no risk.
