Portable Line Boring Machine


If you are interested in finding out how line boring machines work and how they are constructed, we've designed an infographic to help you understand the basics. This example explains shows the Mirage LB100 which can be used to bore diameters from 6" up to 36".

The Line Boring Machine is an essential piece of equipment for companies carrying out on-site machining services. Small machines are typically used for projects such as the refurbishment of hinges on construction vehicles. They are often in conjunction with a bore welder, which is used to add more material back to the hinge location before machining nback to the original specification.

Larger machines can be used with a variety of boring arm lengths on projects such as turbine casing refurbishment, and in the shipbuilding industry for stern tubes and rudder bores.
