What is honing?

Honing is an abrasive metallography process that produces a low-tolerance, precision machined surface on a metal workpiece while simultaneously grinding away an abrasive grinding wheel or rotating stone on it in a pre-planned pattern. This process produces a highly refractive finish on the metal surface that requires high temperatures and aggressive solutions, such as abrasive grinding fluids. The final product is highly wear-resistant and exceptionally smooth, making it ideal for use in abrasive applications. The physical properties of metal, especially high hardness and high heat resistance, make this material particularly well suited for machining applications.

Honing Equipment and Capabilities:

Our honing department brings to the table the best products available in the market at Maroney Company. We achieve this by working with these powerful honing machines:

Sunnen Model ML4000

A solution that takes honing to a whole new level, which is exactly what we at Maroney Company are always aiming at. This machine allows us to produce faster and with greater accuracy and consistency than I.D Grinders – especially where diameters are under 40 mm (1.57 in.). This machine provides constant stroke length and stroke rates; combined with automatic size control and a patented Dual Feed Pressure System. This means greater control of bore size, finish and geometry than ever before, at high production rates.

Sunnen Hone Manual

When it comes to specialized, very detailed, and complex honing requirements, we at Maroney Company always surpass the expectations with our great machining and human resources. The Sunnen Hone Manual brings to our expert personnel the option to achieve greater detail in our client’s projects due to its greater precision than any automated machine that’s in the market.
