Gun drilling or deep hole drilling is widely used, and
hugely beneficial, across several sectors and for different applications. The
process requires specialised equipment and knowledge to maintain the straightness,
and tight tolerances necessary for some components.
Considering the advanced industries using gun drilling, it’s evident that production of certain parts requires a reliable, time-efficient and accurate process. Here’s what it all entails and why it’s so important when choosing the right engineering company.
Advances in engineering technology have given common CNC machining centers deep hole drilling (gun-drilling) ability up to a certain depth-diameter ratio. Deep hole drilling is a specialist machining operation that requires a specialised engineering company and PRV checks all the right boxes. Continue reading →
Deep Hole Drilling – The Stuff Dreams are Made of?
Deep hole drilling, (sometimes referred to as Gun-drilling), is a specialist machining operation that requires a specialist engineering company to carry it out. It is used when high precision round bores are crucial. The process produces holes that can be controlled within very tight tolerances. It gives far greater accuracy than conventional drilling methods ever will.
PRV-Engineering are one of the few skilled engineering service suppliers to offer a deep hole drilling facility here in the UK. The service can be supplied as an integral part of an overall manufacturing project. It can also be offered as a sub-contracted service for clients who either do not have the in-house capability themselves, or who have, but do not have the capacity. Continue reading →
