A horizontal boring machine (or horizontal boring mill) is a machine tool which bores holes in a horizontal direction. There are three main types — table, planer and floor. The table type is the most common and, as it is the most versatile, it is also known as the universal type. Horizontal boring machines are often heavy-duty industrial machines used for roughing out large components, but there are also high-precision models in use. View on Ohio Memory.
