Honing Machine

 

a metal-cutting machine for finishing (honing) the surfaces of parts. The basic variations for the design of a honing machine are as follows: (1) the part moves along nonrepeating paths relative to the flat (or shaped) surface of a stationary honing plate (or two plates, if the part is held between them); (2) the plate (or two plates) moves in a similar manner relative to the stationary part; (3) the part moves relative to the rotating disk (lapping tool). A finegrained abrasive powder or lapping paste is applied between the part and the plate (or disk), and the substances abrade the surface being honed. Several parts may be worked simultaneously on a honing machine.


Honing Machine

 

a grinding and lapping machine tool used for honing. Honing machines include vertical, horizontal, and inclined configurations, single-spindle and multispindle types, machines for external and internal honing, and universal, semiautomatic, and automatic machines. The cutting tool, or hone, is attached to a spindle and is equipped with fine-grain abrasive rods, or sticks. The principal motion of the tool (rotation) is produced by a separate electric motor or hydraulic turbine, and the feed motion (rectilinear or reciprocating) is usually obtained from an hydraulic drive. There is also a radial feed mechanism that provides for the rapid feed of the sticks toward the surface being processed and ensures automatic compensation for wear during operation. The most common honing machines are semiautomatic types for honing blind and through holes.

The robot identifies which part to run first--short versus long--and loads it into the honing machine. When the first part is finished, the robot removes it, loads a second and places the first part in the wash station.
Pac-Nor Barreling (Pac-Nor.com, 541/469-7330) has improved quality and reduced cost with a honing machine from Sunnen Products Company (Sunnen.com, 800/325-3670.) The machine has all but eliminated the pre-rifling lap, which is the most difficult and time consuming and the hone produces a consistency in bore diameter that is head and shoulders above lapping, within two to three millionths of an inch end-to-end.
Important to note: The Sunnen SH-2000 job-shop honing machine offers digital control of spindle speed, power-stroke speed and extra strokes for bore sizing and finishing.
My own experience includes a user of a honing machine which used low viscosity oil that leaked to the point that the whole motor was filled until it short-circuited the connections.

The SV-500 Series vertical CNC servo honing machine produces whole-bore, constant crosshatch, tapered, and custom profiled bores.
Sunnen's new SV-1000 Series vertical CNC honing machine is based on a modular design, engineered to scale up from a single-spindle machine to a fully automated multi-spindle unit for ultra-precise bore sizing and finishing.
