Public concerns about the state of the environment have soared in recent years and, at Hone-All, we recognise that we have a role to play in protecting the Earth in any way we can.

Nearly one-quarter of carbon emissions are produced by manufacturing businesses worldwide and, while the CO2 emissions in the UK have fallen by 10% in the past year, there’s clearly a long way to go.

A New Pinacho ST285 CNC Lathe For Our Workshop

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Oct 15, 2021 12:30:00 PM

We are looking forward to welcoming a new Pinacho ST285 CNC lathe to our workshop here at Hone-All, after accepting a quote from C Dugard Ltd, of East Sussex.

This is an exciting investment for us because it is the first CNC lathe we’ve purchased with a C-axis. The additional axis gives us the capacity to drill and tap on PCDs and machine keyways/slots in-house, increasing the range of services we can offer. Previously we had to either subcontract this aspect of our work to a trusted supplier (with customer permission of course), or request the customer to arrange it themselves after machining – something we were always uncomfortable with because it meant we couldn’t offer an end-to-end service.

What Materials Are Used In Manufacturing & Why?

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Sep 29, 2021 1:07:00 PM

A wide range of materials are used in CNC machining, making it one of the most versatile methods in modern precision manufacturing. Most metals are compatible with CNC machining, alongside several plastics and polymers, and even certain foams. Your choice of material hinges on the purpose of the component, the environment in which it will be used, it’s stress load, and your production budget.

How Long Will My Project Take?

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Nov 26, 2020 4:40:00 PM

There are several reasons why you may choose to outsource your drilling and boring work to a specialist company such as Hone-All. It may be that your business doesn’t possess the specialist equipment necessary to complete tasks precisely or quickly enough to meet expected lead times. Alternatively, you may be swamped with orders and don’t have the capacity to fulfil all competing demands at one time. Or, perhaps, you recognise the benefits of trusting a team of drilling and boring specialists to deliver the high standards within your timescale, to help to cement your business’s positive reputation with your customers.
