Now you might wonder…
…How the heck does extrude honing work?
The name extrude hone says it all: the process involves extruding an abrasive-laden polymer through a tooling and then through designated holes or passages in the workpiece. This polymer contacts all surfaces equally, working like a flexible file or slug to hone the metal in a very uniform and predictable manner. The process is essentially controlled erosion and can be used for aggressive surface removal or fine polishing as the case may require.
