Factors for Optimal Boring Performance

Several factors, such as limited tool life, extended cycle times, and poor bore quality, can compromise the quality of the boring process. The key to increasing productivity and achieving the perfect bore is to understand the factors involved and address any issues that may arise during application. The following are three factors you need to keep in mind for optimal boring performance.

Unstable Parts

Unstable parts can adversely affect tool performance during machining. In addition, the size and power of the machine center need to be given proper attention because they determine the cutting parameters. Roughing heads may work differently when used with spindles of different sizes.  

You need to address unstable parts, fixtures, and worn machine spindles to ensure smooth application. In most cases, just little changes in cutting parameters and insert types can work wonders.

Keep the True Bore Depth in Mind

When choosing boring tools, you must consider the true bore depth as well as the extra reach required. Thanks to modular tooling systems, you can try several combinations for proper usage and maximum rigidity. If you’re looking for extra tool length, start with a broader base size and then reduce the diameter gradually to meet specifications.

Choose the Right Speeds and Feeds

For the efficient operation of tools, you must choose the right speeds and feeds. This factor is a crucial decision for optimum free-cutting conditions. While the boring bar is typically run at high speeds and moderate feed rates, this may vary depending on the previous conditions. 

Keeping these factors in mind is important for optimal boring performance.
