Have a part to extrude hone in El Segundo CA? 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 El Segundo CA, 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?
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.
Why should I choose Extrude Hone AFM?

- Dies and molds
- EDM recast removal
- Food processing
- Turbines and pumps
What metals can I extrude hone in El Segundo CA?
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 El Segundo CA 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 El Segundo CA and how fast you want to remove material from the workpiece. However, the process is certainly faster than hand finishing, porting, or deburring. While shipping your parts to and from our shop will add time to the process, ordering the polymers won’t because we keep a large selection on hand.
