Have a part to extrude hone in Torrance CA? We can meet your exact specs, guaranteed.
Sometimes called abrasive flow machining, extrude honing is an extremely useful process suitable for virtually any level of surface finishing or interior passage improvement. When it’s time for you to extrude hone in Torrance CA, 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?
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. The process is essentially controlled erosion and can be used for aggressive surface removal or fine polishing as the case may require.
Why should I choose Extrude Hone AFM?
Because you can trust Extrude Hone AFM to get your project done correctly. 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 Torrance CA?
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 Torrance 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 Torrance CA and how fast you want to remove material from the workpiece. However, the process is certainly faster than hand finishing, porting, or deburring. We have a huge stock of polymers and abrasive grits on hand so that prepping the media won’t add any delays to the process.
