How Productivity is Increased with Vertical Boring Mills

How Productivity is Increased with Vertical Boring Mills

Boring is used for finishing an internal surface. Large parts can be machined on a boring mill. Most of the manufacturers require a boring mill. Vertical boring mills can perform operations such as turning, facing, cutting, boring and tapering and operate much the same as an engine lathe, performing most of the common lathe operations.

There are actually 2 types of boring mills - horizontal and vertical, and both come with their own advantages at doing specific tasks. With horizontal machines, the spindle is mounted horizontally, and with vertical machines the spindle is mounted vertically. Vertical boring mill applications include turbine casings, machine tool tables and ring gear blanks among others.

The main difference between horizontal and vertical mills is that on a horizontal boring mill, the workpiece is stationary and the tool turns, while on a vertical boring mill, the tool is stationary and the workpiece turns. The shape of a workpiece will generally determine if a vertical or horizontal machine is used.

Vertical boring mills can be equipped with integrated spindle motors that deliver speeds of up to 40k rpm. An important advantage of vertical boring mills is the retractable quill which eliminates the need for cranking the work table up and down, thereby increasing productivity and milling efficiency.
