…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.
