How Does The Oil & Gas Industry Benefit From Outsourcing Deep Hole Boring?

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Sep 17, 2019 2:24:00 PM

 

Oil and gas exploration and extraction relies on long, thin, durable tubing to work. However, only a very limited number of engineering companies have the expertise, machinery, and tools to create the precision-tooled, high-capacity metal tubing that fossil fuel industries need. At Hone-All, we can assist the production of oil and gas tubing by creating precision-bored, deep hole extraction equipment to bespoke order. We regularly process stainless steel extraction tubing using high-capacity, specialised stainless steel super-alloys, such as Inconel 718 and AISI 4145.

But what are the specific advantages that fuel companies gain by using us for their orders? Read on...

Specialist Honing Services – A Major Contributor To The Sector

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Jun 17, 2019 12:42:09 PM

Manufacturing enterprises within the engineering footprint remain the largest economic contributor of the engineering-based industries, generating £156.1 billion GVA (or 9.3% of the GVA for all industries) in 2015. Indeed, in 2016 almost half of the engineering footprint turnover came from manufacturing (46.5%).

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.

Avoiding Drill Wander In Deep Hole Drilling & Boring

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Jan 22, 2019 11:55:00 AM

Drill wander is a major feature of all deep hole drilling and deep hole boring machinery and service provision. This is where the drilled hole will start perfectly on centre and although the bore will be completely straight, the exit will be off-centre by an amount relative to the length of the hole drilled.

Understanding Quotes & Costs In CNC Honing, Deep Hole Drilling & Boring

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Jan 15, 2019 11:53:00 AM

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

Modern apprenticeships do not cover such skill sets and even the traditional apprenticeships from decades ago only ever covered honing or grinding in a minimal format.

A Perfectly Formed Bottom – Does Your Bore Really Need A Flat Bottom?

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Mar 6, 2018 11:21:00 AM

Producing blind bores into precision machined components, and responsibly quoting for them, should always result in more questions for the customer. As much as time is short during our busy working days, and these queries often result in a little lost time, it’s always worth investigating at the design stage whether the form required suits the process needed to produce it or will require a non-standard tool.

Have You Ever Paid Over The Odds For Drilling, Boring Or Honing?

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Jan 19, 2018 2:31:27 PM

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.
