The Best Boring Application for Challenging Projects

While the basic process of boring, enlarging holes that have already been drilled, sounds simple, it can become complex quickly. When the boring process involves intricate machined parts and materials the complexity of making pre-drilled holes larger, concentric, properly sized, or finished is more complicated projects. The following are types of boring that can get the complicated job done.
Pattern Drilling Boring
Pattern drilling is a state-of-the-art boring process that is perfect for removing material in a sequence of machined holes, in a variety of sizes, depths and physical orientations. To maintain accuracy and quality this process normally takes place in a carefully controlled industrial facility.
Blind Bottom Boring
When a hole has a bottom or surface that doesn’t allow the drill or tool to penetrate the part, blind bottom boring is necessary. When performing precision blind bottom boring, you need to have experience with different metals and alloys. This state-of-the-art process needs a skilled machinist to achieve the tight tolerances and finishes it requires.
A chamfer bore produces a beveled edge connecting two surfaces. It makes a small cut, usually at a 45-degree angle, to remove a 90-degree edge. Often “bevel” and “chamfer” are used for the same boring process, though they are slightly different technically.
The step boring process is best for a project with multiple diameters or features. Machinists can enlarge existing bores or add features within exact finish requirements and tolerances because of the inserts that are set at different heights and diameters in the process.
