Not all boring mills are created equal. Although boring milling machines offer the most versatility, horizontal boring mills offer specific features that are highly required in some metal fabrication processes.
Here are the following reasons why you should consider horizontal boring mills over its vertical counterpart.
Because a horizontal boring mill’s cutting head or spindle is positioned horizontally, it can mill sinking dies conveniently. Also, face milling the top surface of a heavy gearbox housing would be easier with horizontally oriented boring milling machines.
Heavy Duty Application
At times, it might be difficult to raise or lower heavier and larger workpiece. In this case, the bed type horizontal boring mills can efficiently perform different machining process like lathing, turning and grooving. A horizontal boring mill can perfectly work on large castings, forgings and fabrications with weights of up to 50 tonnes and 3m diameter. These large metal fabricated products are usually manufactured for industries like marine, chemical, oil and gas.
Moreover, because horizontal boring milling machines work on large and heavy workpieces, these type of boring mills usually require more space.
Considering the above reasons, isn’t it great to have a milling machine that is both versatile and heavy duty? TOS America’s floor type horizontal milling machine can handle workpieces weighing up to 150 tonnes. Its powerful headstock consists of a movable slide ram (Z-axis) and a moveable live spindle (W-axis) perfectly works in both ways. It is also equipped with a CNC rotary table of up to 3 meters for high precision.
