Honed Out in Placentia CA

Get your engine components honed out in Placentia CA to improve performance

Even the best manufacturing process can leave behind tiny imperfections in the interior surfaces of your engine parts. At Extrude Hone, we can remove these imperfections to help enhance your engine’s performance. It’s as simple as getting key parts honed out in Placentia CA.

How Extrude Honing Works

When a part is honed out in Placentia CA, a small amount of metal--about 1 mm--is removed from the surfaces of the interior passages. While hand honing is possible, it is not the most efficient process. It takes far too long, and it may not reach the deepest interior passages. Abrasive flow machining is faster and easier. All interior surfaces can be reached and smoothed evenly. This is made possible through the use of a specially formulated polymer media that, when pressurized, conforms to the shape of the interior passages and abrades them on all sides. Because the media allows the abrasive particles to recirculate, there is always fresh abrasive at the surface and every millimeter of the passage will undergo consistent and controllable removal.

Benefits for Performance

AFM ProcessAfter getting honed out in Placentia CA, interior passages are smoother, allowing for improved fuel and air flow. This translates into more intense combustion and more complete cylinder evacuation, which can help deliver:

  • Increased horsepower
  • More thrust
  • More torque
  • Better fuel efficiency
  • Lower emissions

What Kind of Parts Can Be Honed Out in Placentia CA?

With a few exceptions, most engine parts that air or fuel flows through can be honed out in Placentia CA. We can vary the abrasive media depending on the type of metal in the part--for example, a lighter abrasive for aluminum and a heavier one for cast iron. If you only hone out one part, make it your intake manifold as this will deliver the biggest performance gains. One part that you may not want to hone out is the header, since the honing process would weaken the interior weld. What we can do is add an exterior weld and then smooth the inner surface just enough to enhance flow.

Why Choose Extrude Hone

Extrude Hone has been a leader in abrasive flow machining for over 30 years. We actually pioneered the process for automotive parts. Thanks to our many years of experience, you can trust us to provide superior quality extrude honing that will remove the exact amount of material you specify. Our skill is particularly important when you want flow matched parts, since parts cannot be honed together.
