Extrude honing, or abrasive flow machining, is an extremely versatile process that can be used to enhance the geometry and surface finishes of all kinds of metal products. When it’s time for you to extrude hone in Anaheim, be sure you turn to the pros at Extrude Hone AFM for expert help and reliable, repeatable results.
Now you might wonder…
…How the heck does extrude honing work?
A polymer media carrying an abrasive grit is pushed through the workpiece by a hydraulic ram, causing the media to be extruded through the holes and passages in the workpiece. The grit hones all surfaces of the metal passages as it goes by--hence the name extrude hone. In essence, extrude honing produces controlled erosion, grinding away imperfections. The technique can be used aggressively to enlarge passages or delicately for fine polishing.
