Magswitch Technology’s first magnetic drill wins award

MagDrill Disruptor 30 takes innovation award in online rankings.

Magswitch Technology’s first magnetic drill to market, the MagDrill Disruptor 30, is a winner in the fourth annual Pro Tool Innovation Awards.

“We are very excited, but not surprised, that the Disruptor is being awarded,” said David Morton, Chief Executive Officer. “The MagDrill offers superior performance on round and thin material, coupling our patented shallow field magnet technology and our patent pending pivoting base. The award is a testament to our engineers. To enter a highly competitive tool category and get it right with our first tool is a great accomplishment. Magswitch is changing the way pipe drilling and hole cutting is done.”

Tool and accessory winners were decided by their level of innovation, power, and value. These are best-in-class products that are truly ahead of their time.

A panel of judges made up of tool professionals from across the United States weighed in on entries from top global manufacturers, and Magswitch Technology received an award for their magnetic drill press. Here's what the judges had to say about the MagDrill Disruptor 30:

“Magnetic Drill Presses are a compelling tool class by nature, and Magswitch offers features on the Distruptor 30 that are pretty attractive. Anytime weight drops in a tool without sacrificing quality, it’s a good thing for the end user. The Magswitch MagDrill Disruptor 30 comes in under 25 pounds. We also really like the ability to turn magnets off individually to help with setup for a tool that’s often used in less than ideal positions. Those magnets also swivel so you can work on flat or rounded surfaces without the need for an adapter plate.”

The first of the series, the MagDrill Disrupter 30, utilizes Magswitch patented technology with added patent-pending pipe conformability. The uniquely flexible drill base is capable of superior grip on flat and round surfaces, as well as pipe outer and pipe inner. Its novel swiveling magnet base design lands on pipe a little over two inches in diameter. Compared to competitor drill bases, the MagDrill delivers better results on thinner steel. Once you have experienced the Disruptor 30, you will wonder what you ever did without it.
