Cost vs Quality In Deep Hole Boring, Drilling & CNC Honing

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Jan 30, 2019 12:01:00 PM

As a business, we will naturally assume there is a requirement of concentricity or equal wall thickness unless we are told otherwise, for example, if the application is simply for fluid flow

You could argue that we are over-engineering the machining and this is at the expense of our competitiveness within the industry. However, we believe in giving the customer the very best that can be achieved and ensuring that they do not encounter any unexpected issues further down the production process.

Specialist services such as deep hole boring, deep hole drilling and honing are a black art to some and still slightly grey for others.

Honing is one of those subcontract services which often suffers an unfairly bad reputation!

Covered in the apprenticeships of old, it's always the honing machines that bring either the wry smile or comical grimace when people visit as if they were lucky enough to go through a full apprenticeship it was either one of their favourites or the hated machine that just “had to be used to pass the exam”.

There are lots of applications for deep hole drilling across many industries, with the origins tracing back to gun barrels. Deep hole drilling is used in different materials and can help achieve a tight diameter, straightness, and a perfect surface finish.
