About Boring Mills

 With their wealth of experience, Tos America Inc. is the go-to company when it comes to boring mills, proudly importing from FERMAT Machinery in the Czech Republic. A boring mill can operate with large work pieces, which can be up to 66 ft in length. The amount of power that can be used is around 150 kW or 200 horsepower. Boring mills have a boring bar that has a hollow part in it, where a coolant is passed through for cooling purposes. During boring, vibration and chattering may occur. Tungsten alloy disks are used to limit the amount of vibration experienced.

Generally, boring mills work by reducing the resistance of the surface being bored that existed before. Various factors are looked at to come up with the best design, such as avoiding surfaces that do not physically touch the cutting tool being used in a continuous way. Blind holes (those that do not travel from one end to another) are also avoided. Instead, the holes that pass across from one end to the other are preferred (through holes). The angle that the cutting tool deviates from the surface being bored requires the use of small length to bore diameters. The boring bar used has to be rigid to penetrate tough materials.

Boring mills use a certain programming language called G-code. G-codes such as G76, G85, G86 and G88 are used. They assist the user of the mill to know how fast to move, where to move and the path of progress. This enhances removal of excess materials. Tos America Inc. stocks the finest boring mills and has been providing the best customer service since 1997. Their aim is to provide satisfactory and high-quality products for the maximum benefit of their customers. They provide a great selection of boring mills and can answer any question or concern.
