Have a part to extrude hone in Irvine CA? We can meet your exact specs, guaranteed.
Extrude honing, or abrasive flow machining, is an extremely versatile process that can be used to enhance the geometry and surface finishes of all kinds of metal products. Extrude Hone AFM is here to help you with any part you need to extrude hone in Irvine 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. In essence, extrude honing produces controlled erosion, grinding away imperfections. The technique can be used aggressively to enlarge passages or delicately for fine polishing.
