The ideal machine for deep-hole drilling
The Almac BA 1008HP machine launched at the beginning of 2016
and presented at the Siams exhibition is an awesome means of producing components that require deep holes with small diameters.
Considering the machine was developed for machining watch bracelet links, it’s really no surprise. Components that need deep-hole drilling with depths of 10 to 15 times the tool diameter can be easily processed on this exciting new machine.
At the PMT/EPHJ 216 exhibition, the capability of the BA 1008HP machine was showcased machining a H-shaped link. Starting with a 15 x 6 mm 316L stainless steel bar, the link could be produced in 240 seconds.
