History of vertical boring mills: Vertical boring mills have a somewhat vague or even mysterious history and background. There seems to be no definite date when a vertical boring mill first came into being. The Bullard Machine Tool Co. was founded in 1894 and sometime thereafter, the company was believed to have created a vertical “boring machine.” Sometime thereafter, they added a turret to their vertical boring machines, making them “vertical turret lathes” or VTLs as they are called today. In time, other machine tool manufacturers began developing their own machines and so today, there are numerous brands of vertical boring mills or VTLs.

Where Vertical Boring Mills (VTLs) are used: Vertical boring mills or vertical turret lathes are not seen in as many machine shops nor in manufacturing plants as are horizontal boring mills. However, there is a sizeable population of them out there. Depending on what type of machining they specialize in, you’ll find vertical boring mills in facilities ranging from the very smallest to the largest. A lot of VTLs are in use in the oil industry. They are also widely used in repair work; especially of construction, mining and military type of equipment. When parts or components needing to be turned are too large or too heavy for horizontal engine lathes, the answer is normally a vertical boring mill or vertical turret lathe.

Brands of vertical boring mill/vertical turret lathes. Bullard Cutmasters are surely the most popular vertical boring mills or VTLs on the market, machinists do like their simplicity and ruggedness and also their ease of operation. However, there are several other very good brands of vertical boring mills like King, Webster and Bennett, Giddings & Lewis, Cincinnati-Gilbert, Niles, Shibaura, Schiess, Toshiba, Betts and a few more. All brands have their own advantages and disadvantages of course. For example, if you need low profile machines, a Webster & Bennett might be a good choice; they are usually more low profile than other brands of the same size chuck. If you need a large vertical boring mill with ram heads, King is usually the one. If you need higher table RPMs, a late model Giddings & Lewis is usually a good bet. Thus, many brands of vertical boring mills.

Vertical Boring Mill Sizes: Vertical boring mill/VTL size is determined by the diameter of its table or chuck; sizes range from two feet up to as much as fifty feet. In choosing the size machine to buy, you need to consider how the parts to be turned, need to be chucked. If you are about to turn a part or object that is sixty inches in diameter, you might want a seventy two inch or larger machine if you plan on chucking the object on the O.D. or outside. However, you might get away with turning some object that’s larger in diameter than the table if you can chuck it on the inside (I.D.); because, most all vertical boring mills are capable of swinging objects a few inches larger than the table. The overall height of vertical boring mills and turret lathes is determined by how much vertical space is built in between the table or chuck and the cross rail or tool head. Use caution in choosing which size vertical boring mill or VTL.

Vertical boring mill specifications: A vertical boring mill depending on the brand, will have its own inherent advantages and disadvantages as mentioned above. We just need to know the brand you want, what size table or chuck is required to contain and chuck the parts you will be turning and how much vertical clearance you’ll need beneath the cross rail and/or tool head. If you will be turning the I.D. of some deep cylindrical object like valves or housings of some form, you’ll probably need one or two ram heads that will allow you to turn those without chatter and deflection. If you’ll be turning the sides of cylindrical objects, you might need a side head on your machine. A vertical boring mill, equipped with a turret type tool head, becomes a vertical turret lathe or VTL and offers the greatest versatility; however, if you’re parts are quite deep, then you must have a ram.

Many vertical turret lathes have both turret head and ram head and some do even also have a side head; just let us know what you need or prefer in the way of tool heads. Depending on what you’ll be turning, the RPMs may be very important. If you will require higher than normal RPMs for whatever reason, be sure you tell us that. Twenty four to one hundred inch vertical boring mills may run up to 180 or 200 RPMs; whereas larger machines normally peak out at much slower RPMs for safety and good machining considerations. One more specification to consider is horse power. Standard HP is usually sufficient unless you’re going to be doing a lot of “hogging” or deep cuts for long periods of time. If you are going to need extra horsepower, be sure and tell us when you contact us for a vertical boring mill.

I hope the above has been helpful in your quest to find the right vertical boring mill or vertical turret lathe.
