Sometimes, especially in the Aerospace industry, the surface finish generated by traditional CNC manufacturing just doesn’t cut it. That’s why for Aerospace components that require a superior finish, Kessington has accurate and efficient Honing machines, as well as skilled operators to ensure that our machines run properly.
HONING AT KESSINGTON AEROSPACE
Honing is a surface finishing process, where an abrasive stone or grinding wheel scrubs against the inside of a tubular or cylindrical component. The stone acts as a tool within the machine, traveling along a guided path. This results in a precise and polished surface for the workpiece. Honing is also often used to correct the diameter and shape of a part as well
HONING: A SPECIALIZED AREA OF MANUFACTURING
Honing is a specialized area of manufacturing that is especially beneficial for applications, like the Aerospace industry, that require their components to meet tight tolerances. This type of manufacturing is ideal for longer production runs where accuracy and repeatability are essential, as they can reliably produce accurate results with every part.
Some of the components that can benefit from honing include:
- Fuel injectors
- Valve components
- Brake Sleeves
