How Abrasive Flow Machining Impacts Semi-Conductors

How Abrasive Flow Machining Impacts Semi-Conductors

Semi-conductors are very intricate pieces of material that require extremely precise finishing. In order to precisely machine semi-conductors, it is important to utilize advanced technology and processes like abrasive flow machining.  If you are working with semi-conductors, you may be wondering just how abrasive flow machining, aka extrude honing, can help. Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions regarding semi-conductors and extrude honing.

What is the best surface finish possible for semi-conductors?

Semi-conductors need to have a smooth, immaculate surface finish in order for them to work properly. Even the slightest imperfections or blemishes can impact the performance of a semi-conductor, which is where extrude honing comes into place. At Extrude Hone AFM, we will work within the limitations you impose on the process to reach the desired surface finish.

How can Extrude Hone AFM control how much material is removed?

At Extrude Hone AFM, we know how crucial it is to deliver the results that you request. That’s why we’ve spent so much time researching and developing our processes. Each component from every client has its own process developed to ensure that we have precise control over how much material is removed. By controlling the tooling, media flow pressure, and the viscosity and abrasive concentration of the media we force through your component, we can precisely dictate how much material is removed.

What dimensional tolerances does Extrude Hone AFM hold?

Because we so carefully control the variables in the extrude honing process, we are able to hold very precise dimensional tolerances. In fact, we can actually hold tolerances within 1-ten thousands of an inch (.0001). A human hair is .003 to .004 inches thick, so you can only imagine how precise our process is.  

Why should I trust Extrude Hone AFM?

At Extrude Hone AFM, we have over 48 years of experience in the business. In fact, we were one of the first companies to offer abrasive flow machining and extrude honing services in the country.
