Belt Drive Drilling Machine Tools

meddings compact drilling machine

Compact Specification 

Our latest machine development is still produced here in our own factory. This machine combines all our previous experience and knowledge in building drilling machines, but at a reduced cost base. It is lighter than previous models yet still robust and rigid. 

Not intended as a full time production machine, it still offers performance and accuracy to the highest order for the lighter user. 

 

L1 and L2 Meddings Drilling Machines

L1-L2-drilling-machines

Developed from our earlier, long running, series these models feature 2 MT spindles with increased drilling capacities, the L1 series effectively replace the earlier L2 models and the new L2 replaces our earlier M4 series thus offering better value. The L2 models feature a 2 speed motor to extend the available speed range. 

Items now included as standard - rack and pinion table adjustment, worklight and base mounted stop switch were previously available as optional extras. All machines are supplied complete with chuck guards as illustrated. 

 

Meddings Geared Head Drilling Machines

meddings-geared-head-drilling-machine

The Meddings Geared Head Floor and Bench models are a new addition to the Meddings range. 

They are a robust drilling machine giving you the benefit of extra torque at the drill point. All machines are supplied complete with ‘flag’ type chuck guards as illustrated. 

 

Meddings Spare Parts 

Meddings Machine Tools have been making drilling machines for over 70 years. This amounts to over 250,000 machines around the world.  

Meddings can still supply spare parts for over 50% of their machines and we have limited amount of spares for over 90% of the rest.  

 meddings-spares

We are still manufacturing parts for our existing machines. Many of these parts are still adaptable to our older range of machines.  Manufacturing since 1942, Meddings Machine Tools can supply many original spare parts for their machines, depending upon their age. Below is the Meddings list of manufactured machines. 

 

 

Why not treat your existing Meddings Drilling Machines to a full overhaul. 

 MB10-refurbished-high-speed-drilling-machine

Meddings Machine Tools are now offering a refurbishment service for the majority of their drilling machines post 1975 (Subject to model type). Due to demand for quality drilling machines it has become evident that existing customers have relied on the quality and accuracy of their Meddings Drilling machine over a number of years in their production environment and refurbishing a machine that you know is cheaper than buying a new one.

This is why Merlin Industrial Products and Meddings are now offering this service which will restore your existing machine, giving further years of excellent service.
