Boring machine introduction

The first boring machine tool was invented by John Wilkinson in 1775.

The boring machine is one of the most versatile machine tools used to bore holes in large and heavy parts such as engine frames, steam engine cylinders, machine housings etc which are practically impossible to hold and rotate in an engine lathe or a drilling machine.

By the use of the boring machine the range of speeds and feeds provided to various traversing components allow drilling, milling and facing operation with equal facility.

By the fitting of simple attachments, the use of the machine can be extended to include screw cutting, turning, planetary grinding or gear cutting.
