As one of the leading suppliers of single-spindle or multi-spindle deep hole drilling machines the TIBO Tiefbohrtechnik GmbH provides sophisticated solutions for sophisticated tasks. The excellence of Tibo deep hole drilling machines is recognized in a wide range of branches throughout the world including hydraulics, pneumatics, aerospace, renewable energies and medical technologies.
Deep hole drilling is defined as "a metal-cutting" machining process for making boreholes in which the ratio of drilling depth to drilling diameter is normally 10:1 or more". A method that requires a lot of technical know-how, high-quality tools and maximum precision.
As one of the world's leading manufacturers of deep hole drilling machines, Tibo supplies high-precision solutions that have been proven many times over for drilling tasks involving diameters of 2 mm to 400 mm and drilling depths up to 12,000 mm, realised in a modular machine concept consisting of high-quality, perfectly harmonised system components.
Depending on the diameter and depth, this involves using various methods that Tibo has continuously perfected in ongoing development work: Gundrilling and BTA deep hole drilling. Both methods allow highly precise and fast deep hole drilling in a wide variety of materials from aluminium and stainless steel to super-alloys in aerospace engineering.
The Tibo modular system is as simple as it is ingenious, and offers almost limitless configuration possibilities – from the universal standard machine to part-specific special solutions. Individually adapted to your deep hole drilling requirements, this means that we can always offer you an optimum machine configuration that does exactly what's demanded of it with maximum efficiency.
Continuous further improvements to our product range and the use of proven components result in much simpler handling, less complex setting-up and extended machining possibilities.
1st Module: Machine bed
The solid basis of every Tibo deep hole drilling machine is our machine bed, which is available in many standard sizes including linear guides and various base plates onto which the other drilling units are mounted. This ensures extreme precision down to the 1/1000 mm.
2nd Module: Drill spindle
The drill spindles are mounted onto the linear guides and base plates – between one and six spindles that are fitted with the drive to match depending on the drilling task. Spindle drives with switchable gears are also available for large machines.
3rd Module: Tailstock or second drill spindle
Fixed or counter-rotating tailstocks can be fitted, depending on the customer's requirements and the task. Alternatively, a second spindle component can also be configured to drill simultaneously from two sides with up to twelve spindles in total.
4th Module: Drill bush holder carriage (ELB) or coolant pressure head BOZA (BTA)
he optionally movable drill bush carriage or the coolant pressure head (BOZA) is attached, depending on the drilling method. The drill bush holder with a clamping cone used in gundrilling (ELB) guides and centres the drill and takes up the coolant and drilling chips that are removed from the bore hole. The coolant pressure head (BOZA) is used in the BTA method. It guides the drill tube and at the same time presses the deep drilling oil with high pressure along the drill to the drill's tip. In the process, the Tibo modular system also allows a combination of gundrilling and BTA methods on one machine.
5th Module: Chip removal and coolant system
The drilling chips are fed to the chip discharge via the chip conveyor (optionally: chip basket), while the drilling oil is first filtered, cooled if necessary and finally fed back into the coolant oil tank. A combination with a centrifuge is also optionally available.
6th Module: Steady rests and vibration dampers
The required number of tool steady rests (gundrilling method), vibration dampers (BTA method) and workpiece steady rests (all methods) is used depending on the length of the workpiece. Here, the modular Tibo system also allows quick and simple changing of the steady rests – giving you an inestimable advantage over the competition when frequently changing machining tasks are involved.
7th Module: Control
Tibo deep hole drilling machines are equipped with state-ofthe-art automation technology. Our intuitive touch based user interface enable efficient parametrisation and supervision of our drilling processes. Essentials features such as work peace memory, user account control and remote access capabilities are always included. The movable control panel gives you unrestricted access to all machine components.
8th Module: Safety doors / light barriers
Tibo deep hole drilling machines conform to the European Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and are equipped with light barriers in combination with a safety fence. Machine enclosures are available as an option
