Utilizing Extrude Honing for Automotive Parts

Utilizing Extrude Honing for Automotive Parts

The automotive industry is one of the main industries that Extrude Hone AFM is involved in. With the increase of horsepower and the enhanced surface finishing capabilities that extrude honing offers, it’s no wonder why many in the automotive industry trust Extrude Hone AFM with their abrasive flow machining needs. If you are considering utilizing our services, here are a few frequently asked questions, answered by the experts at Extrude Hone AFM!

What engine components are best to have processed?

If you are trying to maximize performance, the best part to submit for extrude honing is the intake manifold. This will help improve the overall performance of your engine, as well as increase horsepower depending on the configuration.

How much material is removed?

The amount of material removed is dependent on the specs. Typically, up to 1 millimeter is removed. This is done as necessary to improve flow.

How much increase in horsepower can I expect?

If you are utilizing extrude honing to increase horsepower, one of the first questions asked is “how much increase in horsepower can I expect?” The answer isn’t extremely cut and dry, but on average, extrude honing can increase flow capability by 25%. How that increase in flow capacity translates to horsepower will depend entirely on how your combination is tuned and configured.

Can Extrude Hone AFM flow match my parts? 

At Extrude Hone AFM, we do not recommend nor can we bolt parts together to flow match them. However, mating parts allows for flow matching. By matching the parts to the gasket, we can ensure that they have the same dimensions after going through the extrude honing process.

What do I need to do before sending my parts in to Extrude Hone AFM?

At Extrude Hone AFM, we work with bare casted products. That means you will need to completely disassemble the component, removing everything, including electronics. This will enable us to get right to work performing our quality and reliable extrude honing services.
