What Is Deep Hole Drilling?

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Nov 19, 2021 6:02:43 PM


Deep hole drilling is a machining process in which holes are created up to ten times deeper than the hole diameter. Suitable for a range of metals, including the strongest of superalloys, deep hole drilling is used in many fields, including oil and gas generation, aerospace, mould-making, and heavy industry.

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 Much Should Deep Hole Drilling, Boring And Honing Cost?

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Nov 26, 2020 10:00:00 AM

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.

What Is The Average Turnaround Time For Gundrilling?

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Sep 21, 2020 5:15:00 PM


Gundrilling is a specialised art, so there can be a lot of confusion about basic variables such as time, cost, and quality. This can create a headache for buyers, especially as clients – who arrive from a variety of demanding sectors, such as aerospace, defence, and automotive – need to know that the finished product will meet their specifications with absolute precision. Let’s take a look at gundrilling timings.

Trepanning Vs Drilling: What Is The Difference?

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Mar 24, 2020 2:15:37 PM

Trepanning is a machining technique for drilling large diameter holes in materials, particularly where there is a requirement to retain the solid core or when tolerances are not particularly tied up.

The Risks Of Using A Distant Gundrilling Company

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Jun 28, 2019 10:00:00 AM

Gun drilling is the ideal process for drilling small diameter holes without losing straightness and precision. It creates close tolerance holes in high-temperature alloys and a range of steels. Machines must be configured to precise specifications, then operated using precision tooling, high-pressure coolant, and an interrupted feed. Some applications require a sub-micron finish that a gun drill can’t achieve, so extra processes and customisation are often needed such as honing.

What Is Gundrilling & Why You Need It!

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Feb 9, 2018 1:54:22 PM

The process of gundrilling was initially developed to create uniform sized holes in artillery pieces and rifles. Techniques and technologies were set in place to give repeatable, highly accurate results on mass armament production lines, from the late 19th century onwards. Gundrilling is still used in the defence industry, but has far wider applications too.

How To Achieve A Perfect Result With Gundrilling

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Feb 2, 2018 9:41:24 AM

When carried out using the right equipment and with the right training, gundrilling delivers reliable results each time. This is the reason the technique – which you may also know as deep hole drilling – is so widely used in manufacturing. Hundreds of aerospace, automotive and medical components, among others, use gun drilling to produce precision holes of almost any length.
