Description of diamond honing tools
Honing is an abrasive machining process that produces a precision surface on a metal workpiece by scrubbing an abrasive stone against it along a controlled path. Honing is primarily used to improve the geometric form of a surface, but may also improve the surface texture.
We optimise the honing tools by mounting hones for processing a wide range of materials, such as aluminium, thermal spray coatings (e.g. APS-, LDS-, CBC-, RSW- or FeC coatings / PTWA), free cutting steel , tool steel, hardened steel (e.g. 100Cr6, 16MnCr5, C45, VA-steel, ST52, 17CrNiMo6, 34CrNiMo6, 42CrMo4V, 9SMn28k), various types of grey cast iron (e.g., G26Cr, GGG40 and others) as well as custom materials, such as CFC, graphite, AluSil (AlSi17), DISPAL, titanium-aluminium alloys and galvanized NiKaSil- or hardchromium-coatings.
Application of diamond / cbn honing tools
Used for Thermal spray coatings in cylinder bores of internal combustion engines. Energy efficient engines with low friction, reduced length and lower weight as well as lower production costs can be achieved due to the new process chain for the manufacture of cylinder bores.
