At Extrude Hone AFM, we have been applying our patented process to hydraulic systems of all kinds for over 48 years. The AFM process is the ideal way to remote burrs and other raised particles – down to the microscopic level – for completely smooth, efficient passages throughout the hydraulic system.
Prioritize the manifold
If you’re only going to send one metal component to Extrude Hone AFM to undergo our patented process, we recommend the manifold. It has some intricate, intertwined, and basically impossible to reach passages that can only be surface finished and polished with our abrasive media. We’ll use a hydraulic ram to force the customized abrasive media through the metal component to achieve ideal, totally repeatable results. Traditional deburr processes don’t achieve the same level of results – they leave behind microscopic burrs that’ll negatively impact the performance of the manifold and therefore, the entire hydraulic system. The burrs will end up breaking free during operation of the hydraulic system – especially under high pressure – which will result in contamination and premature failure of your system.
Make sure every single burr is effectively removed – down to the microscopic level – by sending your hydraulic system’s manifold to Extrude Hone AFM. The AFM process will not only improve the surface finish, but it will also target the desired radii.
Uniquely customized process
Each application of the AFM process is carefully planned and calibrated to achieve exact intended results. As long as we communicate with you effectively and plan accordingly prior to the application, surface finishing, deburring, and polishing can be achieves without altering the geometry of the manifold. We will carefully stay within the tolerance called out in the blueprint specifications of your manifold.
All kinds of hydraulic metal components would benefit from extrude honing
Send more of your hydraulic parts to Extrude Hone AFM to undergo our patented process. You’ll notice a dramatic improvement in performance after parts are extrude honed. We’d be happy to give you a custom estimate for any part you’re thinking of sending our way. Simply fill out this online form or give us a call at (562) 531-2976. If you have any questions, free to ask. We always welcome the opportunity to save our clients (and potential clients). We look forward to making your hydraulic system work better very soon.
We serve all kinds of industries including:
- Additive manufacturing
- EDM recast removal
- Food processing
We also apply our AFM process to turbines, pumps, dies, gears, molds, and more. We are always looking to expand the applications of our AFM process, so if you work with metal components and you don’t see your industry listed here, don’t hesitate to contact us. We would be happy to design a new application of our patented process.
