Boring Mills 101


Boring mills are used for enlarging holes with precise accuracy and can also be used to taper holes. To achieve this, boring mills have of a single point cutting tool and a gun barrel or an engine cylinder. While turning cuts external diameters, boring cuts internal diameters.


Types of Boring Mills

Boring mills can either have mountings on both ends or may be supported from one end. There are various types of boring.

Line Boring. Line boring has a boring bar that is supported by mountings at every end. It is used if there is already an existing hole and requires precision in its diameter.

Back Boring. Back boring has a similarity to line boring in that it also bores into an existing hole only that the work piece will also be bored on the back side.

Technical Specifications of Boring Mills

The machines come in many sizes and styles. The dimensions between the piece and tool bit are changed to cut both vertically or horizontally into the surface. The equipment used in cutting is usually a single-point cutting tool, which is created from carbide or high-speed steel. Carbide consists of p10 and p01 while high speed steel is made of m2 and m3. Boring mills requires power of up to 150 kilowatts to run. Cooling of the bores is done by a coolant that freely flows through a hollow passageway. The boring mills that are computerized produce high accuracy and precisions results consistently and efficiently. Alloy disks are used in the mills due to their toughness.
