Extrude Hone in Santa Ana CA

Have a part to extrude hone in Santa Ana CA? We can meet your exact specs, guaranteed.

Relatively few metal parts come right off the assembly line in perfect condition. Fortunately, imperfections large and small can be removed using extrude honing, aka abrasive flow machining. Whether you have one exhaust manifold for your hot rod to extrude hone in Santa Ana CA, want help putting the finishing touches on a 3D sintered prototype, or need to remove the EDM recast layer on an entire run of parts, Extrude Hone AFM can help.

Now you might wonder…

…How the heck does extrude honing work?

Extrude honing works just like you might guess from the name: an abrasive media is extruded through the workpiece to hone the metal surfaces as it passes by. In essence, extrude honing produces controlled erosion, grinding away imperfections. The technique can be used aggressively to enlarge passages or delicately for fine polishing.
