High Performing Horizontal Boring Mills

There are many diverse applications for horizontal boring mills. These highly industrious machines are in demand the world over. The first item on any industrial agenda is acquiring the proper equipment. It is standard practice to assess the project that you are undertaking and then purchase the best equipment for that particular job. If the equipment is not optimum, it has the potential to lead to a loss of both time and money. Horizontal boring mills are highly capable machines, known for their ability to perform various services including rock drilling, auger boring and tunneling. This type of work is heavy duty and vital to the industrial sector. It is impossible to do this work without these machines.

Horizontal boring mills are most typically used for boring holes in surfaces, however there are many different kinds. In auger boring, the horizontal boring machine is fitted with a wide range of diameters for the steel casing. This application relies on the amount of work and the condition of the ground being bored. This is very complex work and is only attended to by industrial professionals with years of experience. Tunneling is another application, most commonly used when digging a tunnel for future railroad or subway work. The diameter of the tunnels can range in size and largely depends on varying factors. Different steel casings are used to perform hard rocking. There are several applications for the horizontal boring equipment depending on the industry and work being done.

Two types of installations for horizontal boring mills are duct and grout. In the duct installation, wire ropes are placed inside a casing and distanced from the jacking pits. These ropes are highly essential as they prevent the duct from moving about inside the casing. In the grout installation, both the higher and lower ends of the casing, except for an air vent, are blocked. Grout is then pumped into the hose to fill the empty spaces.


I never knew this machinery was so complex, thank you for enlightening me.
