Benefits of Boring Milling Machines
With a horizontal boring mill or a vertical boring mill machine available, when would you need a boring mill machine? Let’s consider the reasons.
When you have very large workpieces, a boring mill is exactly the machine you need. With its larger configurable space, a boring mill can mount larger workpieces than a horizontal milling machine.
Less Tool Deviation
Tool deflection occurs when the tool cannot counter resistance. This could happen if the spindle is extended too far from its anchor, causing it to drill at an unusual angle when using stronger force. The spindle on a boring mill advances from the headstock, allowing it to be kept short to prevent tool deflection for more consistent drilling.
A boring mill is an extremely rugged and reliable machine. With proper maintenance, it can provide decades of useful life to optimize cost of ownership. Boring mill machines retain their value, making them valuable for resale.
Generally, boring mills have CNC technology that can be pre-programed for each operation. This feature reduces time and errors between steps. This capability also lets the operator run large batches of parts to increase production. The CNC controls allow for a more user-friendly operation eliminating the need for manual control letting the machinist watch for any potential stop mistakes before they happen.
