Any Type and Size of Cylinder...
Cylinder Honing a metallic product (Super Finishing) produces a controlled
surface condition unobtainable by any other method. It involves finish,
geometry and metallurgical structure. A high percentage plateau free of
cut, torn and folded metal (with radiused ports).
A resilient, flexible, honing tool with a soft cutting action. The
abrasive (points) globules each have independent suspension that assures
the Flexible Cylinder Hone to be self-centering, self aligning to the bore and
self-compensating for wear.
Specifically, it is a low-temperature abrading process that exposes
the undisturbed base metal structure to produce a long wearing surface.
It is a method of developing a surface on a metal part which is
optically smooth and metallurgically free of any fragmented, amorphous
or smeared metal from previous operations. It is accomplished at a low
pressure where the “stones” float across the surface. The final achieved
finish ensures a superior performance in situations dependant on the
condition of the surface.
The unique crosshatch created by a Flexible Cylinder Hone is extremely efficient.
It provides a multiplicity of oil grooves or valleys for oil retention,
as opposed to the often un-directional or uneven valleys common to the
conventional type rigid hone. These crosshatch patterns remains longer
than the rigid ones, as the
cylinder wall is wear-reduced after hours of use.
