Horizontal Boring Machines

What is a Horizontal Boring Mill?

A horizontal boring mill is a machine tool that drills holes in a horizontal direction, and there are three types including floor, table, and planer. Boring mills allow for extremely large parts to be easily machined and allows end-users to reach small cavities.

Horizontal Boring Mill vs. Vertical Boring Mill

The difference between a horizontal boring mill and a vertical boring mill is that a horizontal mill’s workpiece is stationary, and the tool turns. A vertical boring mill will have a stationary tool while the workpiece turns. A horizontal boring mill allows for more versatility because the machine tool doesn’t limit part sizes.

Floor & Table Type Horizontal Boring Mills

KRC Machine Tool Solutions specializes in distributing and repairing floor and table type horizontal boring mills. Although these boring mills are primarily used to drill holes into large parts, they’re also used for turning and milling workpieces. These boring mills are used for heavy-duty, industrial applications because of their ability to shape large components. While a table type boring mill has a table attached to the machine that moves in two axes, a floor type does not have a table but moves on floor plates.

KRC is a premier machine tool rebuilder, retrofitter, service provider and we are now proud to offer new & used CNC horizontal boring mills, including floor type boring mill machines and table type boring mill machines.
