Manufacturers in all sectors are under intense pressure to deliver quick results on tight budgets. Your customers expect a fast turnaround and a competitive rate, which you have to achieve with the minimum resources available. It is natural, therefore, to look for areas where economies can be made on the manufacturing process. Industrial rollers are a common target for these cost saving exercises, with the risk that low price is prioritised over quality.

As a business, we will naturally assume there is a requirement of concentricity or equal wall thickness unless we are told otherwise, for example, if the application is simply for fluid flow
You could argue that we are over-engineering the machining and this is at the expense of our competitiveness within the industry. However, we believe in giving the customer the very best that can be achieved and ensuring that they do not encounter any unexpected issues further down the production process.
At Hone-All we are committed to the belief that simpler is better when it comes to supply chains. Most people know Hone All for our practical services in advanced honing, boring, and CNC machining. However, we’re also dedicated to trouble shooting, project management, and ironing out supply chain creases.
As a company dedicated to precision engineering, Hone-All are often asked about our quality guarantees and accreditations.

Drill wander is a major feature of all deep hole drilling and deep hole boring machinery and service provision. This is where the drilled hole will start perfectly on centre and although the bore will be completely straight, the exit will be off-centre by an amount relative to the length of the hole drilled.
All workshops are potentially dangerous places. This means that health and safety is something that everyone at Hone-All takes very seriously.
Specialist services such as deep hole boring, deep hole drilling and honing are a black art to some and still slightly grey for others.
Modern apprenticeships do not cover such skill sets and even the traditional apprenticeships from decades ago only ever covered honing or grinding in a minimal format.
Deep Hole Boring is a highly specialised process and is used for the drilling of bores above ø20mm internal diameter. A variety of forms can be utilised within the process including blind bores, counter bores, flat bottomed bores etc. depending on the application.

Here we are once again, looking forward to a new year. 2018 has been a busy and enjoyable year and we hope for more of the same in 2019!
Honing is the process used to create precision surfaces and achieve tighter tolerances than is achievable with conventional machining methods. When metal is bored or cut, the drilling process often leaves a rough, uneven texture.
