We’re committed to offering unparalleled customer service, ensuring the utmost part quality, and achieving outstanding accuracy in our machining processes. Our superior horizontal boring capabilities ensure timely, accurate, high-quality components on every order.
Our high-tech facility houses a vast array of large horizontal boring machines with a max 120” x 152” x 70” work envelope and 5-axis capacity, giving us the ability to machine very complex parts at high speeds while maintaining precision ± 0.0005” tolerances. With our 15-ton lifting cranes, we can also manage very large parts.
Capable of working with many different materials from standard metals to high-performance alloys and engineering plastics, we possess the skills and equipment to execute a variety of different machining processes. Our quality management program focuses on systematically ensuring that our processes and products are the best they can be. Carefully controlled and supervised testing and inspection procedures ensure that each customer requirement and expectation is always met or exceeded.
Boring machines allow operators to achieve precise and demanding tolerances. Boring uses single-part cutting tools to enlarge pre-drilled holes in workpieces. Though similar to turning in many respects, boring is a challenging operation and requires a great deal of expertise to perform the process correctly.
Horizontal vs. Vertical Boring
Horizontal and vertical boring machines are defined by the orientation of their spindles. Horizontal boring mills keep workpieces stationary while tools turn to perform operations. Vertical boring mills utilize turning workpieces while the tools to remain stationary.
Horizontal boring offers more versatility because it accommodates much larger part sizes. There are a number of other benefits, including:
- Increased production speed
- Reduced tool deflection
- Compatibility with CNC machining
