So, did you know that a TREPANNING tool is more than just a device that the Victorians used to drill holes into people's skulls as a medical procedure? Trepanning metal is also a modern day drilling operation.
One of the reasons that I love Factory Friday is the way that I get to learn about the world of manufacturing - and it was Andrea Rodney, a long-time friend of the Lollies who filled me in.
Her Company, Hone-All Precision, is the market leader in deep hole boring, deep hole drilling, honing and turning up to 3 metres long. Their specialist area of expertise is tubular components of all specifications and tolerances.
We know a lot of companies that use 3 and 5 axis machines to create very complex parts with amazingly small tolerances but this was something rather different.
