Gun Drilling

At the Forefront of Gun Drilling Technology

Although deep-hole drilling or gun drilling was once felt to be a time-consuming and cost-prohibitive process, advancements in technology have established this methodology as an efficient and practical process in the precision manufacturing industry. Originally developed to create or drill out barrels in guns made of steel, hence the term gun drilling, this practice has become a highly precise operation for boring deep holes in hardened materials such as:

  • Steel
  • Plastic
  • Titanium
  • Aluminum
  • Metal Alloys

Noble Precision remains at the forefront of gun drilling technology with our multi-axis CNC horizontal drills. These high-precision machines are outfitted with tapping and face-milling heads that can produce accurate, repeatable, and smooth-surfaced holes to 3” in diameter and 96” in depth.
