Boring is essentially internal turning, in that usually a single-point cutting tool forms the internal shape. Some tools are available with two cutting edges to balance cutting forces.
ARCH Cutting Tools offers a video overview of its Patriot high-performance boring bars, which offer tunable internal damping technology to deliver optimal dynamic stability and yield significant increases in machining performance. Additionally, you can leave Stealth Tooling “CFT” in the machine and use it for deep or shallow bore applications, thus reducing changeover and setup time.
