Engis presents the CM-2000 compact, multi-stroke honing machine and the PH-4000 and PH-5000 honing machines. The CM-2000 provides precision honing for one-off and batch production as well as a choice of fully electronic semi-automatic or manual operation with two button-control panels. It provides full servo and is capable of producing parts with a tolerance of 5 micron. The PH-4000 and PH-5000 offer programmable, precision-controlled production honing with a wide capability for small to medium volumes.

According to the company, the honing machines enable versatility with programming options available for parts that need custom-stroke features. The machines offer fewer, more conversational programming screens for simplified operation, and change-over time is 10 minutes. The honing machines include interlocked guarding as well as controls located outside the spindle area for safety.

Force-monitoring feedback, submicron stone adjustment rate, multiple-cut parameter options and precise positioning of the stroking fixture make it possible to hone parts in their relaxed state, the company says. This leads to ultra-precision bore geometries, consistent surface finish, submicron size control and burr-free cutting.
