Keep reading to learn more about the pivotal role of AFM tooling in our process.

The Essentials of AFM Tooling

AFM tooling is the backbone of our services. This isn't just any tooling - it's a meticulously designed holding fixture with three critical functions:

  • Holds and supports the workpiece while it is processed
  • Directs the flow of abrasive media to the area of the workpiece requiring abrasive flow
  • Protects other areas of the workpiece where no abrasive flow is desired

Each tooling setup is custom-created for a project, ensuring precise pressure restrictions and material removal as needed. In nearly all instances, the area of the workpiece to be processed is set up to provide a pressure restriction for the abrasive flow to remove the material as required. At Extrude Hone AFM, our patented process relies of tooling to achieve the desired results for each project.
