Emissions
The generation of noise emitted by the mill drill is 80 dB(A).
If the mill drill is installed in an area where various machines are in operation, the noise exposure (immission) on the operator of the mill drill at the working place may exceed 80dB(A).
INFORMATION
This numerical value was measured on a new machine under proper operating conditions.
Depending on the age respectively on the wear of the machine it is possible that the noise
behaviour of the machine changes.
Furthermore, the factor of the noise emission is also depending on manufacturing influencing
factors, e.g. speed, material and clamping conditions.
INFORMATION
The mentioned numerical value is the emission level and not necessarily a safe working level.
Though there is a dependency between the degree of the noise emission and the degree of the
noise disturbance it is not possible to use it reliably to determine if further precaution measures
are required or not.
The following factors influence the actual degree of the noise exposure of the operator:
 Characteristics of the working area, e.g. size or damping behaviour,
 Other noise sources, e.g. the number of machines,
 Other processes taking place in the proximity and the period of time during which the oper-
ator is exposed to the noise.
Furthermore, it is possible that the admissible exposure level might be different from country to
country due to national regulations.
This information about the noise emission shall allow the operator of the machine to more easily evaluate the endangering and risks.
CAUTION!
Depending on the overall noise exposure and the basic limit values the machine
operators must wear an appropriate hearing protection.
We generally recommend to use a noise protection and a hearing protection.

Installation and assembly
3.4.1 Requirements regarding the installation site
Organize the working area around the drilling machine according to the local safety regulations.
INFORMATION
In order to attain good functionality and a high processing accuracy as well as a long durability
of the machine the installation site should fulfil certain criteria.
Please observe the following points:
 The device must only be installed and operated in a dry and well-ventilated place.
 Avoid places nearby machines generating chips or dust.
 The installation site must be free from vibrations also at a distance of presses, planing
machines, etc.
 The substructure must be suitable for the mill drill. Also make sure that the floor has suffi-
cient load bearing capacity and is level.
 The substructure must be prepared in a way that possibly used coolant cannot penetrate
into the floor.
 Any parts sticking out such as stops, handles, etc. have to be secured by measures taken
by the customer if necessary in order to avoid endangerment of persons.

 Provide sufficient space for the staff preparing and operating the machine and transporting
the material.
 Also consider that the machine is accessible for setting and maintenance works.
 Provide for sufficient illumination (Minimum value: 500 lux, measured at the tool tip). At little
intensity of illumination an additional illumination has to be ensured e.g. by means of a separate workplace lamp.
INFORMATION
The mains plug of the mill drill must be freely accessible.
3.4.2 Load suspension point
WARNING!
Danger of crushing and overturning. Proceed carefully when lifting, installing and
assembling the machine.
 Secure the load-suspension device around the drill-mill head. Use a lifting sling for this purpose.
 Firmly clamp all clamping levers on the mill drill before lifting the mill drill.
 Make sure that the load attachment does not cause damage to components or paint.
3.4.3 Assembly
 Check if the underground of the mill drill is level using a spirit level.
 Check if the underground is sufficiently stable and rigid.
The total weight amounts to 1058 lbs./ 480 Kg.
ATTENTION!
Insufficient rigidity of the foundation leads to the superposition of
the vibrations of the mill drill and of the underground (natural frequency of components).
Critical speeds and moves in the axis with displeasing vibrations are rapidly achieved in
case of insufficient rigidity of the whole system and will lead to bad milling results.
 Place the mill drill on the provided underground.
 Fix the mill drill in the provided through-holes on the machine foot.
The attachment points are marked by arrows on the machine foot.
WARNING!
The condition of the underground and the fixing type of the machine foot to the
underground must be in a way that it can bear the loads of the mill drill. The
underground must be level. Check if the underground of the mill drill is level using a
spirit level.
Fix the foot of the mill drill to the substructure with the provided through-holes. We recommend
you to use shear connector cartridges resp. heavy-duty anchors.

Use of collet chucks
When using collet chucks for the reception of milling tools, a higher operation tolerance can be
achieved. The exchange of the collet chucks for a smaller or larger end mill cutter is performed
simply and rapidly and it is not necessary to disassemble the complete tool. The collet chuck is
pressed into the ring of the swivel nut and must rest there by itself. The milling cutter is clamped
by fastening the swivel nut on the tool.
Make sure that the correct collet chuck is used for each milling cutter diameter, so that the milling cutter may be fastened securely and firmly.

Selecting the speed
For milling operations, the essential factor is the selection of the correct speed. The speed
determines the cutting speed of the cutting edges which cut the material. By selecting the correct cutting speed, the service life of the tool is increased and the working result is optimised.
The optimum cutting speed mainly depends on the material and on the material of the tool. With
tools (milling cutters) made of hard metal or ceramic insert it is possible to work at higher
speeds than with tools made of high-alloyed high-speed steel (HSS). You will achieve the correct cutting speed by selecting the correct speed.
In order to determine the correct cutting speed for your tool and for the material to be cut, you
may refer to the following standard values or a table reference book (e.g. Machinery's
Handbook ISBN 0-8311-2424-5, Insert Pgs. 30a & 30b (attached)).
The required speed is calculated as follows:

INFORMATION
High temperatures are generated at the tip of the tool by the occurring friction heat. The tool
should be cooled during the milling process. Cooling the tool with a suitable cooling lubricant
ensures better working results and a longer edge life of the cutting tool.
INFORMATION
Use a water-soluble and non-pollutant emulsion as a cooling agent.This can be acquired from
authorised distributors.
Make sure that the cooling agent is properly retrieved. Respect the environment when disposing of any lubricants and coolants. Follow the manufacturer’s disposal instructions.

those in neighboring areas. While attempts are made to assure that OPTIMUM products comply
with such codes, OPTIMUM cannot guarantee compliance, and cannot be responsible for how
the product is installed or used. Before purchase and use of a product, review the product
applications, and all applicable national and local codes and regulations, and be sure that the
product, installation, and use will comply with them.
Certain aspects of disclaimers are not applicable to consumer products; e.g., (a) some
jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so
the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you; (b) also, some jurisdictions do not allow a
limitation on how long an implied warranty lasts, consequently the above limitation may not
apply to you; and (c) by law, during the period of this Limited Warranty, any implied warranties of
implied merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose applicable to consumer products
purchased by consumers, may not be excluded or otherwise disclaimed.
Prompt Disposition. A good faith effort will be made for prompt correction or other adjustment
with respect to any product which proves to be defective within limited warranty. For any product
believed to be defective within limited warranty, first write or call dealer from whom the product
was purchased. Dealer will give additional directions. If unable to resolve satisfactorily, write to
OPTIMUM at address below, giving dealer's name, address, date, and number of dealer's
invoice, and describing the nature of the defect. Title and risk of loss pass to buyer on delivery to
common carrier. If product was damaged in transit to you, file claim with carrier.
