Drilling 101: The 5 Main Drilling Technologies Explained

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Mar 1, 2021 9:30:00 AM

Drilling is, in simple terms, the process of creating a hole in materials using a variety of drilling tools to vary the size or depth of the hole. In precision engineering, however, drilling is more complex, yet it’s a common and important process that uses advanced, specialist machinery to deliver outstanding accuracy and speed. The type of equipment best suited to drilling depends on several factors, so it’s vital to select the right technology for the job. Here is an outline of the five main drilling technologies, the majority of which we can provide here at Hone-All.

How To Avoid Deep Hole Drilling Mistakes When Working With Steel, Aluminium, And Titanium

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Feb 18, 2021 3:34:58 PM

Effective deep hole drilling demands precision to achieve close tolerances and an optimum surface finish, both of which are negatively affected by incorrect speeds or feeds. Drilling vibration, or chatter, can occur for a variety of reasons, including poor machine preparation, incorrectly chosen cutting tools, improper speeds, and sometimes cause excessive run-out.

How Long Will My Project Take?

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Nov 26, 2020 4:40:00 PM

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.

CNC Machining Quotes - Cost vs. Quality

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Oct 22, 2020 12:00:00 PM

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.

Drill Wander: A Common Problem With Longer Deep Hole Drills

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Jun 22, 2020 4:04:00 PM

So-called drill wander is a common and frustrating problem in many deep hole drilling operations.

So long as the drilling machine is set up correctly, the drill should – in theory – both enter and exit from the centre point. In practice, however, this rarely happens on deep holes; defined as any hole with a depth to diameter ratio greater than 10 to 1.
