What Is The Single Stroke Honing Process And When Should I Use It?

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Jul 2, 2020 11:45:00 AM

Single stroke honing uses a sequence of gradually larger sized abrading tools to complete a bore in a single cycle whilst using multiple tools. The process is conducted by a special-purpose CNC honing machine, through which the bore diameter and positioning are determined in advance.

Compatible materials for honing include stainless steel, cast iron, carbon steel, ceramics, polymer plastic, and glass.

Everything You Need To Know About Honing Hydraulic Cylinders

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Mar 3, 2020 12:50:00 PM

Honing is the precision machining process in which a very fine surface on a workpiece is produced using an abrasive tool. High quality honing of hydraulic cylinders is essential, as the effective operation of the pistons depends on the cylinder having a very fine surface finish, which can also prevent premature wear of moving components. Honing also creates a secure seal around a hydraulic cylinder, providing extended life and preventing costly leaks.

Why Is Effective Honing So Important For Hydraulics?

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Sep 20, 2019 3:08:00 PM

 

Machine honing is a precision metalwork technique used to create super-flat, shaped, and super-smooth surfaces. By applying an abrasive stone anvil to cut against the metalwork, and applying intense pressure and movement, pieces of any shape and size can be altered to exact material specifications.

3 Simple Ways to Optimise Your Honing Operation

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Jul 5, 2019 3:47:23 PM

Metalworking brings you better results if you take a systemised approach to your components. Honing requires you to work with bore size tolerances of 0.0001” so precision is a necessity. With the right machine, fixturing, abrasive, and oil, you can improve your quality and cycle times and reduce costs and lead time therefore improving your competitiveness. Let’s look at this in more detail:
