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 end result is a sort of controlled erosion of the metal in the designated holes and passages of the work piece. We can make the process more aggressive for faster surface removal or less aggressive for fine polishing and removal of minute imperfections.
