Have a part to extrude hone in Birmingham AL? 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. Extrude Hone AFM is here to help you with any part you need to extrude hone in Birmingham AL, whether it be a single automotive part in need of porting or an entire slew of EDM parts in need of recast removal.
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. Basically, we are producing controlled erosion with our equipment, using larger abrasive particles for rapid erosion and aggressive surface removal and smaller particles for finer polishing.
