Do you have a part you need to extrude hone in New York NY? We are here to meet the specific specs you need
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. When it’s time for you to extrude hone in New York NY, be sure you turn to the pros at Extrude Hone AFM for expert help and reliable, repeatable results.
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. 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.
Why should I choose Extrude Hone AFM?
Because you want your job done right--and we have the experience to make sure that happens. We actually pioneered some of the first automotive applications of the extrude hone process in the 1970s, and we have been perfecting this process ever since. Drawing on our ample experience, we can achieve highly precise, repeatable results no matter how demanding your specs may be. We have experience with the unique needs of many different industries including:
- Additive manufacturing
- Dies and molds
- EDM recast removal
- Food processing
- Turbines and pumps
What metals can I extrude hone in New York NY?
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 New York NY 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 New York NY 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.
