A hand drill is a common power tool commonly used for drilling. There are two types of impact and non-impact electric drills, so what is difference between impact and non-impact electric drills? Which is more suitable for your needs?
The main difference between an impact drill and a non-impact drill is way rotor is assembled. The impact electric drill is equipped with an impact unit on rotor unit, which can provide higher torque and higher speed during drilling, so that it can easily deal with harder materials and hard surfaces such as concrete. Hammerless hand drills have a simple rotating assembly and are suitable for common materials such as wood, metal and plastic.
When using a hand-held drill, a hand-held impact drill has higher efficiency and a wider range of applications than a hand-held non-hammer drill, especially on hard surfaces that need to be drilled. A non-impact electric drill is suitable for relatively simple operations such as general household maintenance and do-it-yourself work.
Therefore, if you need to drill holes on harder surfaces or need higher efficiency and a wider range of application, it is recommended to choose a hand-held impact drill. And if you only need to do relatively simple operations, such as general house maintenance and DIY, a non-impact electric drill can meet your needs.
Of course, electric drills with impact have their drawbacks. First of all, an electric impact drill will produce more noise and vibration, which can have a certain effect on your experience. Secondly, impact drills are more complex than non-impact drills, so repairs and maintenance are relatively more difficult. Therefore, these shortcomings must be taken into account when buying a hand-held impact drill, and the maintenance and repair work associated with it must be carried out efficiently.
Summing up, we can say that both impact drills and non-impact electric drills have their advantages and disadvantages. Which type of electric drill to choose should be determined according to actual needs.
