Let’s now give you some insight how Norck makes CNC honing on parts with precision surface quality.

What is honing?

Like grinding, honing designates a process to refine a metal workpiece surface after being machined using an abrasive rotating instrument to remove material. The tool used for honing consists of a spindle that contains abrasive chips.

Honing is used to refine holes in a workpiece, such as piston holes in the engine block.

What are the advantages of honing? 

Honing offers more advantages over traditional honing methods:

• Higher accuracy:Honing offers tight tolerances that can reach ±1µin (±0.025µm).
• More consistent: It is a more consistent process since it is controlled via a computer.
• Higher surface finish: Honing offers smoother surfaces that can reach Ra 2µin 0.05µm


How is it fabricated?

It is made when the honing tool that contains chips is inserted into the workpiece, and by rotating and translating, it removes small amounts of material. A constant coolant is poured upon the tool to cool it down and remove the swarf.

The tool’s diameter can be adjusted to keep contact between the sticks and the interior diameter of the workpiece.
