Sharing is caring!

When you are running a manufacturing plant, you may be tempted to use typical milling techniques to make holes in the material. However, there is the danger of running into such problems as breakage or drifting. While such techniques as interpolation certainly work, there is an easier method to get the job done. This method is a boring operation and there are many reasons why mass-production manufacturers prefer this method.

Less Time Involved

When interpolation is used, there are multiple instances where tools must be changed out to complete the job. With boring, the tools initially fitted will be the ones used throughout all of the production.


When needing perfect holes produced on a massive scale, nothing beats boring for sheer consistency. One of the reasons for this is that there is no special equipment needed. The simplicity of the boring equipment means less chance of failure of other moving parts.

Smaller Chips

When making holes, you need to be concerned with several factors of chips that are formed. With a boring operation, the chips that are formed are smaller and can be removed far more easily than if other interpolation techniques have been used.


Many laypeople do not realize that balance is key when making holes. Boring allows for a load balance that is far superior to the load balance that comes with other manners of making holes.
