The Production Process Of Honed Tube
While producing honed tubes, our factory uses the honing process to make smooth surface finishes of inside diameters; and to maintain exact tolerances on inside diameters.
Under the honing process, abrasive stones and paper are used to the ID of the tubes, which “grinds” stock away to remove surface imperfections from the cold drawing process; and to achieve the desired dimensional tolerances and surface finish. And normally we use cutting fluids to provide easy cutting action and also to remove the cut material from the bore.
Honing is a decrease velocity abrading process compared to grinding. Since less pressure and heat is made, the surface, precision and size of the finished product isn’t affected by heat stress. Precision cylinder tubes comprise excellent surface integrity and finish, high accuracy inner diameter tolerances. And an over all dimensions and geometry control that can not be achieved in faster cutting speeds.
