Summary: A laser-guided BTA tool has been developed with the purpose of preventing the axial hole deviation in deep hole boring. To examine the performance of this system, two kinds of experiments were carried out using prebored duralumin work-piece. The first experiment was to examine if the tool can be precisely manipulated by computer. The second was to investigate if the tool can follow the target. The target is located in front of the tool and its position changes in the normal plane to the machining axis. The results show that the tool can turn its course to correct hole deviation.
