Do you know what extrude honing and abrasive flow machining is all about? Keep reading for answers to frequently asked questions regarding extrude honing!  

Q: What is extrude honing?

A: Extrude honing is the process used to finish interior surfaces. This process was developed in the 1960’s and uses pressure or hydraulics to pass an abrasive laden substance through a workpiece to polish, radius or deburr an interior surface. This abrasive laden substance often has the consistency of putty.

This process is used when hand polishing or deburring is impossible or would end with inconsistent results due to the shape, size or nature of the workpiece.

Q: What is abrasive flow machining?

A: Abrasive flow machining is the same thing as extrude honing. Abrasive flow machining and extrude honing are also called abrasive flow deburring. This is an interior surface finishing process offered at and perfected by Extrude Hon AFM.

Q: How do you control how much is removed from a workpiece?

A: At Extrude Hone AFM, we can control how much material is removed from a workpiece to very strict specifications. We do this a few different ways. The first, is by changing how abrasive the putty that passes through the workpiece is. A more abrasive putty will remove more material than a less abrasive putty. We also control the force by which the putty is pushed through the workpiece, which also changes how much material is removed. No matter what your specs are, you can count on the experienced team at Extrude Hone AFM to deliver.

Q: What industries utilize extrude honing?

A: Abrasive flow machining and extrude honing is used by a variety of industries. This includes the medical field, semiconductor manufacturers, automotive manufacturers, aerospace manufacturers, and more.
