Grinding, Deburring, Polishing

Manual Machining Processes

Drilling is one of the most widely used machining processes to produce circular holes in metallic and
nonmetallic materials. A drill is a rotary end-cutting tool, with the most common type being the twist
drill. The drill, attached to either a stationary machine or hand held, is used to originate or enlarge
a hole in a solid material.

A drill will have cutting edges and straight or helical grooves or flutes, which allow for movement of chips and cutting fluids/coolants.  Drill wear is not proportional to the number of holes drilled, but occurs at an accelerated rate.

A reamer is a rotary cutting tool with one or more cutting elements, used to enlarge to an exact size and impart a smooth finish to, a previously drilled hole.  Reaming is essentially a finishing operation.

Drilling can be characterized as in a rough form, whereas reaming is the exact form.

BOELUBE® Solid is extremely cost effective in single point work such as drilling and reaming.

Typically, the BOELUBE® Solid is applied to the tool before use. In a block or tube form, it can be hand-held and a drill bit can be touched to the solid before drilling or the solid may be swiped across the
surface to be drilled. Only a minimal amount is required when drilling through thin material.

Improve tool life by reducing heat build-up by applying BOELUBE® Solid push-up tubes or individual blocks to the tool before start-up in belt, disc and wheel grinding operations.
