Deep hole drilling processes, which differ significantly from conventional drilling processes, are relevant for a lot of different applications where holes with high length-to-diameter-ratios and very good qualities are necessary. This paper gives an overview of different methods, which are established to produce bore holes with demanding aspects related to diameter, length-to-diameter-ratio, bore hole quality, workpiece materials and complex internal contours. Beside the detailed explanation of the deep hole drilling methods and tools also the fundamentals of the deep hole drilling principle are explained and completely new developed figures and tables summarize the state of the art. In addition for the most important areas the latest results of process and tool development are included.
