Honing is an abrasive machining process that produces a precision surface on a metal workpiece by scrubbing an abrasive stone against it along a controlled path. Honing is primarily used to improve surface quality of hydraulic cylinder tubes so sealing elements work smoothly on this surface. Honing produces better surface quality than grinding. By honing we can reach Ra= 0.05 – 0.30 µm surface roughness values.
Honing diameters between ø50mm – ø750mm, length up to 5000mm
