Boring is a kind of process that is utilized when it is necessary to achieve a tapered hole. Interestingly, the jig borer was invented independently in both the U.S. and Switzerland at the end of WWI, and it enabled the rapid, yet precise, location of the center of the hole. Boring tools typically include boring heads, boring inserts, and boring machines. It is important to note that there are a large variety of sizes and styles of boring machines. Boring operations on small workpieces can be performed on a lathe, while larger workpieces are machined on boring mills. Surface finish, also known as roughness, in boring may range from 8 to 250 microinches, but is typically between 32 and 125 micro inches. It is also important to note that there are limitations to boring. These include geometric accuracy in terms of form and position. In addition, the hardness of the workpiece have declined recently, as machining technology continues to advance.
When purchasing boring tools there are several things that you will want to consider. First of all, you will need to make sure that the boring tools you purchase are accurate and cost effective. You will also want to make sure that the boring tools are precise; a precision modular component design in boring tools allows for reduced inventory and stock delivery.
