Have a part to extrude hone in San Diego 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. Whether you have one exhaust manifold for your hot rod to extrude hone in San Diego CA, 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?
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. 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. Our experience extends to many different industry applications such as:
- Additive manufacturing
- Dies and molds
- EDM recast removal
- Food processing
- Turbines and pumps
What metals can I extrude hone in San Diego CA?
The extrude hone process can be applied with great success to any kind of metal. It is simply a matter of choosing the right size of grit and the right properties of the polymer media to produce the desired result. Some of the materials we extrude hone in San Diego CA 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 San Diego CA and how fast you want to remove material from the workpiece. But, we can definitely say that extrude honing is faster than finishing a piece by hand. It’s more affordable too. We have plenty of polymers and grits in stock so that you never have to wait for a special order of the abrasive media before starting your project.
