In the rail processing sector, BDS offers two new and completely redeveloped rail drilling machines: The made in Germany, the RailMAB 915 Rail Drilling Machine (Electric) with 1600 Watt motor and 2-stage oil bath gearbox and the RailMAB 965 rail core drilling machine with a petrol engine.

The RailMAB 915 electric driven rail drilling machine and RailMAB 965 petrol driven rail drilling machine are special rail drilling machine used in track construction and signaling, for example, to drill grounding screws, contact systems, and insulated joints. The RailMAB 915 Rail Drilling Machine (Electric) is a Morse Taper 3 (MT 3) machine.

Both rail drilling machine is easily fixed to the rails with a rapid clamping system. In order to ensure the necessary drilling stability, this carries a pressure of 1.2 ton on the rail base.

The multitude of optionally available rail adapters greatly increases the flexibility and the ease of use of the two rail core drilling machines. These adapters automatically determine the height and distance of the core drilling or the hole to be made on the track.

The rail drilling machine range is topped off with the BDS special rail annular cutter of the CarbideRAIL series annular cutters, which have a cutting depth of 30 mm and a diameter of 16 mm to 36 mm.

FULL WAVE CONTROL ELECTRONICS – A full wave control electronics makes it possible for the motor to deliver the same output as of idle motor even while drilling.

OVERHEAT PROTECTION – Due to overload or improper handling of the machine while drilling the machine may get heated and due to heat, the motor may get damaged. The BDS drilling machines protect the machine from overheat by shutting down the motor when the sensors senses overheat, this prevents in damaging of the motor.

OIL BATH GEARBOX – The motor gearbox of the BDS drilling machines are made of an oil bath. The advantage of BDS oil bath gearbox is that, oil in cold or hot temperature is always in a liquid state, hence oil always provides lubrication to upper as well as lower gears, thus increasing the service life of the machine drastically.
