What is a floor type boring mill?
A floor type boring mill is a special type of drilling tool. They are commonly integrated with universal machines and used to cut blocks, panels or sheet metal. They are used to process large components.
Where are floor type boring mills used?
Floor type boring mills are used to process large-formed panels. They are mainly used where there is a requirement for processing large steel panels. These machines are, for example, used for special machine construction, specialising on particularly large machines. They are also used for ship construction, building rail vehicles or mining equipment. Dump trucks, bucket wheel excavators and other large special vehicles are partly produced using floor type boring mills.
What is the structure of a floor type boring mill?
A floor type boring mill is a particularly large boring tool. The machine can weigh 60 tonnes or more. Just like other boring tools, they are also an open construction. That means that they do not have a cover. Therefore, the loading and unloading of workpieces is particularly easy. Floor type boring mills require a lot of space, and need a lot of energy for operation. They also require a separate foundation to be installed. This means that they are often one of the biggest and most sophisticated machine tools within a facility. A powerful lifting device and transportation vehicles are required when using a floor type boring mill. Their operation and maintenance should be reserved exclusively for specialised personnel. Just like all other cutting machine tools, they need to be regularly cleaned.
