Deep hole machining means machining of holes deeper than ten times the hole diameter. This can be done in different machine set-ups. The most common method is rotating the work piece while the tool is fed in a linear movement. Rotating tool is another option as well as a combination of the two.
Regardless of method, the basic principles of drilling still apply, and the correct choice of cutting speeds and feeds are crucial. Satisfactory chip breaking, and removing the chips from the cutting edge without damaging the tool or work piece, is essential. One of the most important success factors is an effective coolant system.
