Just Another Boring Job...

December 1, 2020 2:56 pm


Machining is the only field where boring can actually be considered entertaining. You don’t believe it? Take a look!

Boring is a frequent operation in machine shops as holemaking applications are pretty common, especially in the automotive or gunsmithing sectors. Boring operations are typically done with the objective of enlarging and finishing holes accurately and can be executed on a lathe or on a milling machine.
When done on lathes, the boring tool is moved incrementally by the machine, whereas with mills, the boring tool (boring head) must be adjusted to achieve the desired hole size. In theory, boring tools for turning can make any size hole as long as the bar will fit into the hole. Boring heads for milling machines, however, are limited to a specific range.
