Both pneumatic and electric drills are used to drill holes, but some people do not know difference between them and what their characteristics are. Let's find out in this article.Difference between pneumatic and electric drill
1. Power. Pneumatic drills run on compressed air and must be equipped with air compressors to use air ducts, electric drills run on electricity, they are linear and cordless.
2. Application area. Pneumatic drills are commonly used in factories or repair shops, while electric drills are used in households and factories because they are more convenient to use electricity.
Advantages and disadvantages of pneumatic drilling
The pneumatic drill features high speed, high work efficiency, easy operation, safety, and effective reduction of labor intensity. Using cold compressed air as power source, using machine for a long time is very helpful in heat dissipation. In addition, use of gas as an energy source does not pose a risk such as electric shock and leakage, and is safer to use, and is also suitable for some special scenes such as fire and explosion operations.
However, taking an air compressor with you is problematic, and it is not suitable for outdoor activities or work at high altitude.
Advantages and disadvantages of an electric drill
It is easy to carry and suitable for many scenarios. Even if there is no wire, you can also choose a battery powered product. However, it generates a lot of heat and is not suitable for long-term operation. It is not suitable for working in special environments such as flammable, explosive and underwater.
So for us, if it's for home use, we can buy an electric drill, and for professional service, we can choose an air drill. Here are differences, advantages and disadvantages of pneumatic and electric drills, and I hope you find it useful. Please take a look at other hardware related material~
