Have a part to extrude hone in Atlanta GA? We can meet your exact specs, guaranteed.
Sometimes called abrasive flow machining, extrude honing is an extremely useful process suitable for virtually any level of surface finishing or interior passage improvement. Whether you have one exhaust manifold for your hot rod to extrude hone in Atlanta GA, 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. The end result is a sort of controlled erosion of the metal in the designated holes and passages of the work piece. We can make the process more aggressive for faster surface removal or less aggressive for fine polishing and removal of minute imperfections.
Why should I choose Extrude Hone AFM?
Because you want your job done right--and we have the experience to make sure that happens. We actually pioneered some of the first automotive applications of the extrude hone process in the 1970s, and we have been perfecting this process ever since. Drawing on our ample experience, we can achieve highly precise, repeatable results no matter how demanding your specs may be. We have experience with the unique needs of many different industries including:
- Additive manufacturing
- Dies and molds
- EDM recast removal
- Food processing
- Turbines and pumps
What metals can I extrude hone in Atlanta GA?
Because we can use any grit from gravel-like 1000 grit to powder-like 8-grit and change various parameters like flow, temperature, and pressure, there is really no metal that can’t be extrude honed. Metals we commonly extrude hone in Atlanta GA include:
- Super alloys
- Hardened metals
- And more
How long does the process take?
The answer to this question will depend on what you want to extrude hone in Atlanta GA and how fast you want to remove material from the workpiece. However, the process is certainly faster than hand finishing, porting, or deburring. We have plenty of polymers and grits in stock so that you never have to wait for a special order of the abrasive media before starting your project.
