There are so many kinds of electric drill products on the market, such as electric hand drill, impact drill, electric hammer, electric pick and so on. We don't know where to start when we buy them, especially the impact drill and the electric hammer are often confused. So how to distinguish impact drill from electric hammer? Is it better to use impact drill or electric hammer for decoration? Don't worry, the following will explain in detail the difference between impact drill and electric hammer, teach you how to choose the right hammer electric drill products, let's have a look.
The impact drill mainly relies on rotation and impact. Although the single impact is very slight, the impact frequency of more than 40000 times per minute can generate continuous force; while the electric hammer mainly relies on rotation and hammering, the single hammering force is very high, and has a high hammering frequency, with a beating frequency of 1000 to 3000 per minute, which can produce significant force.
The impact drill is mainly suitable for drilling holes on wood, metal, ceramics and plastics, and can also drill holes on concrete floors, walls, bricks and stones, but the effect is not very ideal; while the electric hammer is very effective for drilling holes in hard concrete, stone and wall bricks, which can produce a strong impact force. With the effect of rotary drilling, the force can crack stones and divide gold.
Comparison of advantages and disadvantages
Impact drill is widely used and easy to use, but the direction of impact drill is not easy to grasp, easy to operate error, resulting in large opening; in addition, the drill is not sharp, so that the hole is not neat, burr or crack; the advantages of electric hammer are high efficiency, large diameter, long drilling depth, but the disadvantage is strong vibration, which has a certain degree of damage to surrounding structures.
Is it better to use impact drill or electric hammer for decoration?
The impact drill can drill with a little hammering effect, which is suitable for drilling holes on metal, ceramic tile and wood, as well as reinforced concrete. It is suitable for household furniture assembly, shelf installation, lamps and so on. The electric hammer can not only drill, but also has high hammering effect, which is suitable for drilling on concrete and stone. It is the first choice for professional installation and engineering construction.
