Precision micro-drilling of deep holes on display at Absolute Machine Tools' booth. 

Stop by the Absolute Machine Tools booth in the South hall (S-8536)—you’re going to like what you see. The company offers a demo of deep-hole drilling on AR/15 gun barrels using its line of Precihole machines, which are designed for micro-drilling and hole finishing for various industries, but are especially geared toward medical implants. 

Gundrilling produces straight, accurate deep holes and is preferred to produce holes with length-to-diameter rations of ten or more. It’s ideal for cannulated medical parts, intramedullary devices such as nails and screws, as well a cannulated drills. These precision parts require a high degree of accuracy for holes as small as 1 mm in diameter.

For production of Swiss-type parts, Absolute is demonstrating the Nexturn line of sliding headstock machines. It is turning and milling a gun revolver to illustrate the versatility of this 32-mm, 9-axis machine. Swiss-type machining is hot at the show, so you don’t want to miss this example.

When you stop by the booth, your hostess (she’s in the skeleton outfit) will show you around. That, too, is well worth a visit.
