Drilling is among the fundamental machining procedures of making holes that are widely used in manufacturing industries such as the automobile industry, semiconductors, aerospace industry, watch manufacturing industry and medical industries. Drilling machines are used for cutting circular holes, including dug-in holes, in items using a rotating component known as a bit or drill. During the action of the rotating component of the drill, the item remains stationary. This report presents the procedure entailed in the design of a free-standing single spindle drilling machine for a machine shop with spindle turning at 3000 rpm. The spindle shaft is driven by an electric motor through a suitable drive and the motor power is 1.5KW.
