Have a part to extrude hone in Phoenix AZ? We can meet your exact specs, guaranteed.
Relatively few metal parts come right off the assembly line in perfect condition. Fortunately, imperfections large and small can be removed using extrude honing, aka abrasive flow machining. Whether you have one exhaust manifold for your hot rod to extrude hone in Phoenix AZ, want help putting the finishing touches on a 3D sintered prototype, or need to remove the EDM recast layer on an entire run of parts, Extrude Hone AFM can help.
Now you might wonder…
…How the heck does extrude honing work?
Extrude honing works just like you might guess from the name: an abrasive media is extruded through the workpiece to hone the metal surfaces as it passes by. In essence, extrude honing produces controlled erosion, grinding away imperfections. The technique can be used aggressively to enlarge passages or delicately for fine polishing.
Why should I choose Extrude Hone AFM?
Extrude Hone AFM is a nationally recognized leader in this technology, having pioneered some of the first automotive applications in the 1970s. Because we understand the physics of extrude honing in such detail, we can meet even the most demanding specs with ease. We have ample experience in extrude honing for different industry applications including:
- Additive manufacturing
- Dies and molds
- EDM recast removal
- Food processing
- Turbines and pumps
What metals can I extrude hone in Phoenix AZ?
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. Some of the materials we extrude hone in Phoenix AZ 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 Phoenix AZ 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.
