Automated Honing Creates Consistent Parts
Micron Manufacturing’s fully automated, one-spindle Nagel Eco 40 hone with post process gaging and automatic wear compensation improved bore quality on a fuel injector and also provided consistent uptime.
A Three-in-One Honing Station
Combining roughing, finishing and gaging in one station is a distinctive capability of the ECO 80 dual-expansion honing system from Nagel Precision (Ann Arbor, Michigan). The system is designed for low- and medium-volume applications that require submicron bore sizes and mirror finishes.
Multitasking For Micro-Finishing
Micro-finishing or superfinishing is traditionally a specialized secondary operation. In the shop, it follows grinding or hard turning as a last surface preparation operation. In many cases, the combination of hard turning and micro-finishing can effectively eliminate grinding.
