Do you have a part you need to extrude hone in Scottsdale AZ? We are here to meet the specific specs you need
When you need to smooth away manufacturing imperfections or enhance the geometry of an interior passage without exceeding blueprint specs, extrude honing with abrasive flow machining provides an ideal solution. After decades of experience, Extrude Hone AFM is a true expert in this process. No matter what you may need to extrude hone in Scottsdale AZ, we can tailor our process to your exact specs for 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.
