Facts and component characteristics
Typical material: Non-magnetic stainless steel, CMC 05.21
Example of dimensions: ≈10 m (33 ft)
- The machining is performed with a deep hole drilling machine tool.
- The critical operation when machining these components is to maintain a good diametrical tolerance with a high concentricity between the bores and a high surface finish.
Machining challenges – solid drilling and counterboring
Safe chip evacuation over the full length of the component, providing
a secure process with good capability
Straightening of hole in component to enable good concentricity for subsequent operations in the counterboring operation
