The increased use of titanium, along with new alloys and parts made of these materials, is resulting in the need for intricate new operations. This in turn is increasing the demand for deep hole machining (DHM). The term refers to engineering techniques used to produce holes that are long compared with their diameter.
“DHM requires more specialized equipment than normal machining and is typically used for engineering projects that require deeper and more accurate machining,” says Tony Evans, senior manager, Deep Hole Machining business development, sales and marketing, at Sandvik Coromant UK.
