Engine Deep Hole Drilling Services

Deep hole drilling is the process of drilling holes with a high length-to-diameter ratio. Unlike ordinary drilling, deep hole drilling is characterized by extreme pressures, the extreme depth to diameter ratio, and the need for cooling lubricant. This manufacturing process is used in many industries and on a variety of materials.

What Are the Methods of Deep Hole Drilling?

There are three ways of deep hole drilling: BTA, gun drilling, and ejector. Gun drilling is the oldest method that was used to create holes in gun barrels. The gun drilling method involves a gun drill – a special tool that consists of a hollow tube with a V-shaped flute along the length. The machine that is used in the gun drilling process is called a gun drilling machine. This method is suitable for smaller diameter deep holes that are not bigger than 50 mm. The advantages of the gun drilling method include outstanding drilling quality, minimum centerline deviation, high process liability, and high cutting performance.

BTA drilling is the method of deep hole drilling that was created by the Boring and Trepanning Association in the 1940s. It is perfect for holes that range from 20 mm to 630 mm. Due to more efficient machine design, efficient chip exhaust, and tool design, BTA drilling can achieve drill feed rates of about 5-7 times faster than gun drilling.

Ejector drilling is similar to the BTA drilling method, but it has some differences. The main difference is that instead of one tube, it consists of two tubes. This method is mainly used on machine centers and conventional machine tools.
