Industrial honing

Honing

a.k.a. crisscross grinding, is an abrasive machining of bores, which results in:

  • specific dimension
  • specific surface quality

Honing helps removing bore form irregularities, such as:

  • ovality
  • axial curvature
  • scratches
  • taper
  • wavy finish

Advantages of honing:

  • higher precision finish of machined bores
  • longer life of metal
  • no superficial stress

Honed diameter ranges:

  • 1.25 mm to 20 mm at 100 mm of length
  • 20 mm to 25 mm at 1500 mm of length
  • 25 mm to 50 mm at 3000 mm of length
  • 50 mm to 1000 mm at 10000 mm of length
