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.
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.
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.
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.
One of the questions that often comes up is why Hone All invests in so many different types of deep hole drilling machines, tooling and equipment?

An article in the Telegraph from March (2018) reported that the rate of growth in the manufacturing sector had slowed to its lowest rate since late 2016. This apparently counteracts reports published in late 2017 and early 2018, predicting continued unprecedented growth for the manufacturing sector throughout the year.

Tubular based components are used in tens of thousands of applications by manufacturers in a wide range of sectors. These components vary enormously in size, capacity and use, but the method by which each is made is broadly similar.
The precision engineering methods used to make industrial tubes and shafts include deep hole drilling, deep hole boring, gun drilling, CNC turning and CNC honing.
