- Headstock. This unit is responsible in making sure the drives are properly supported and the tool is being fed. In this may be found a spindle or two. The first one is slow moving and is designed for heavier boring while the second one is fast moving and is designed for lighter boring operations like tapping or drilling.
- Column. This is the headstock’s support as well as its guide in moving either up or down. It was constructed with a hollow in order to balance the headstock which makes it easier for the machine to move.
- Column Base. It provides support to the column and contains the gears as well as the driving mechanisms. For floor types, the base is fixed in order for the spindle to be in right angles with respect to the runway. For table types, the spindle is designed to be parallel with respect to the runway.
- Runways. This is the one responsible in holding the main column as well as the end support column. If necessary, it will also hold the rotary table.
- End support column. If a line bar is needed then this will support the end. For table types, the end support travels along with the headstock. For floor types, it adjusts in a separate manner and is responsible in making sure the headstock is aligned with the help of vernier and scale.
- Bed. This is present in both planer and table type of machines. This is where the coolant tank is stored and it also helps in supporting the column, table, end supports and headstock.
- Table. This is where the work pieces are clamped and locked. It is responsible in making sure the work piece stays in place. This moves in right angle with respect to the spindle’s axis and will travel differently when working with a saddle.
- Floor Plate. Fixed, located in a higher position and consist of various pieces.
- Saddle. This enables the table to move along the axis and transverse with respect to the spindle.
It is common knowledge that when it comes to horizontal boring mill, it is not meant for production that requires high volume but it is appropriate for applications where a versatile machine is needed to perform various types of machining operations such as threading, boring, tapping, duplication, drilling, forming, reaming, shaping, milling and turning. These types of machines are designed for operations where attributes such as being rigid and versatile are vital. As soon as the machine is setup and installed, it can be used to do various operations. In manufacturing plants, it is not practical to move components from one machine into another especially if those parts are heavy and large in size. Any type of movement and transport could be a source of error and could compromise the accuracy of the resulting component. There are many types of boring mills but most of them can be bought online such as the TOS boring mills. The list below discusses the principal parts of boring mills such as TOS boring mills.
