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. 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?
