Horizontal Boring Mills FAQs

Boring mills are available in two major styles: the vertical and the horizontal boring mills. They all have their own unique features and advantages. The main focus of this article is on the advantages that are associated with using the horizontal milling machines. These machines are very cost effective and are capable of producing a wide range of quality results. They are designed to bore through many different types of materials. The process is usually a quick one and involves minor setup. This means that you will have a decrease in the labor costs that you incur as a business.

The horizontal boring mills are also able to perform boring and tapping in addition to the general machining functions. You will do most of the operations on a single machine, and therefore save a lot of time. There is little manual effort that is needed when using this machine. There are upkeep procedures that, if followed accurately, will keep the machine operational for many years without major breakdowns. To purchase horizontal boring mills, you have to ensure that you are dealing with reliable sources in the industry. It is important to look for a boring mill supplier with lots of experience and knowledge when it comes to the product they provide.

Hugh, the main difference is really in size. You can't manipulate large pieces on a vertical mill. I'd say horizontal is always best. More versatile.

It's hard to choose between vertical & horizontal mills. This helped, thanks.
