There are several reasons why you may choose to outsource your drilling and boring work to a specialist company such as Hone-All. It may be that your business doesn’t possess the specialist equipment necessary to complete tasks precisely or quickly enough to meet expected lead times. Alternatively, you may be swamped with orders and don’t have the capacity to fulfil all competing demands at one time. Or, perhaps, you recognise the benefits of trusting a team of drilling and boring specialists to deliver the high standards within your timescale, to help to cement your business’s positive reputation with your customers.
Have you ever paid over the odds for drilling, boring or honing? If so, you’re certainly not alone.
Drilling, honing and boring costs are notorious for being something of an arcane secret for people who aren’t ‘in the know’ about the process involved. We have attempted to shed some light on the world of pricing in our latest downloadable e-book: The Guide To Deep Hole Drilling, Boring & Honing Costs. You can download a copy by clicking here.
Drilling is one of the most important processes in manufacturing, enabling holes of different shapes and sizes to be made in a variety of materials. However, drilling machines vary considerably, as they are designed to carry out different jobs, so it’s essential to understand which type is most suited to your production needs.
At Hone-All we are committed to the belief that simpler is better when it comes to supply chains. Most people know Hone All for our practical services in advanced honing, boring, and CNC machining. However, we’re also dedicated to trouble shooting, project management, and ironing out supply chain creases.
If you’re planning an engineering project in which you’ll need to drill holes into metals, it’s essential to choose the most suitable method of drilling to achieve the optimum results. Drilling and trepanning are two options, but it’s vital to understand the difference, and the advantages, to make an informed decision.
If there is one thing that we all want to be sure about when heading into a hospital environment, it is that we are stepping into a world of precision equipment. A review of medical literature shows that even routine procedures are fraught with difficulty. For instance, a typical lumbar puncture has five primary areas of risk, and that is before the quality of the tube begins to even enter the equation. As doctors explain: “what we need to achieve is difficult enough without equipment also being a factor”.

There are dozens of different variables involved when manufacturing precision rollers for the printing and packaging industry. This is due to the diversity of materials used in packaging, from coiled steel to aluminium foil, and the temperatures and rotational speeds needed to process adhesives.

CNC honing is an excellent way to achieve tighter tolerances and better surface finishes on a wide range of precision machined components with a round bore. Here's a simple guide to this sophisticated process.

In this article we would like to talk about quotes; specifically, why specialist CNC engineering companies charge what they do. There is a cost versus quality debate in every industry we can think of. The argument possibly goes that the lower the quote, the more corners must need to be cut at the suppliers’ side in order to achieve the price while still returning a reasonable profit. This usually leaves a fairly wide margin for flexibility, but it also means that a race to the bottom towards ever lower prices is rarely beneficial for either customers or suppliers in the long run.
In the middle of a viral pandemic, you simply can't afford to waste time and energy by waiting too long. You can't run the risk of moving anything that might harbour or transport pathogens across tight borders and lockdown zones. It's also crucial to support your local manufacturers during lockdown - without orders to keep them going, many may have to scale back or shut down, once lockdown has finished for good.
