I have completely restored a 1960s drill press made in Italy!

Unfortunately there is no indication of the manufacturer, but after several searches we came to the conclusion that some company manufactured them for third parties and then the plates were riveted without any writing on the castings. In fact, on the Italian market, there are many models identical to this marketed by different companies with different names.

Being a product intended for industrial production, it is equipped with a 380V three-phase motor and according to that shown on the plate it is a 4-pole motor (1400 rpm) for a power of 0.35kW.

The drill was in poor condition, both aesthetically and mechanically. All bearings were making strange noises and were not watertight. The original electrical wiring had been replaced and modified over time with poor results. The spring was completely destroyed and the stroke of the drill was blocked at 4cm, compared to the original 8cm. The chuck had been replaced with an excellent German model that can accommodate drills up to 16mm in diameter.

The weight of the drill is about 90Kg, made entirely of cast iron.

During the restoration of this beauty I was really impressed by the quality of every single component, all the parts fit together perfectly.

For correct operation, not having the 380V in the laboratory, I used a VFD, purchased online, dimensioned in excess of the characteristics of the motor.

Ho restaurato completamente un trapano da banco anni 50/60 fabbricato in Italia!

Sfortunatamente non c’è nessuna indicazione sul fabbricante, ma dopo diverse ricerche siamo giunti alla conclusione che qualche ditta li fabbricasse per conto terzi e poi le targhette venissero rivettate senza nessuna scritta sulle fusioni. Infatti, sul mercato italiano, sono presenti moltissimi modelli identici a questo commercializzati da diverse aziende con nomi diversi.

Essendo un prodotto destinato alla produzione industriale è dotato di un motore trifase a 380V e secondo quello riportato sulla targhetta è un motore 4 poli (1400 giri) per una potenza di 0,35kW.

Il trapano era in pessime condizioni, sia dal punto di vista estetico sia da quello meccanico. Tutti i cuscinetti emettevano rumori strani e non erano stagni. Il cablaggio elettrico originale era stato sostituito e modificato via via nel corso del tempo con risultati pessimi. La molla era completamente distrutta e la corsa del trapano era bloccata a 4cm, rispetto gli 8cm originali. Il mandrino era stato sostituito con un ottimo modello tedesco che può ospitare punte fino a 16mm di diametro.

Il peso del trapano è di circa 90Kg, realizzato interamente in ghisa.

Durante il ripristino di questa bellezza sono rimasto davvero colpito dalla qualità di ogni singolo componente, tutte le parti hanno un incastro perfetto tra loro.

Per un corretto funzionamento, non avendo la 380V in laboratorio, ho utilizzato un VFD, acquistato online, dimensionato per eccesso sulle caratteristiche del motore.
