Process: Boring


Used to make an existing hole on a component larger, boring is achieved through the use of a single-point cutting tool to maintain a high standard of accuracy. The type of boring used varies from component to component and this process can either be completed manually or through the use of a CNC machine. CNC boring is more of an automated method, which relies on the use of commands which have been pre-programmed into a computer. Boring is utilised within a number of industries, such as defence & military, aerospace, oil & gas and automotive.
