Function of Boring Tools
The main function of boring tools is to create precise and accurate cylindrical holes in already formed materials. Boring tools are used to enlarge holes, finish surfaces, or adjust the diameter of an existing hole. They can be used for different purposes, such as:
1. Removing material: Boring tools cut through the material by removing a portion of the surface or expanding an existing hole.
2. Creating precise dimensions: Boring tools can create holes with high tolerances and accuracy, ensuring a precise and consistent diameter.
3. Achieving a smooth surface finish: Boring tools can provide a polished and smooth finish on the interior walls of the hole.
4. Reducing cycle time: Boring tools can perform multiple operations such as drilling, boring, and chamfering in a single process, thus reducing the cycle time.
