Superfinishing


Superfinishing

Superfinishing, sometimes called micromachining or short-stroke honing, is a low temperature, low stock removal process.

  • Benefits
  • Increased part life
  • Decreased wear rates
  • Higher load bearing surfaces
  • Quieter performing parts
  • Improved sealing capabilities
  • Elimination of the “break in” period
  • Reduction in energy consumption

We manufacture a range of stones used in through feed processes to finish cylindrical parts such as tapered rollers, piston pins, shock absorber rods, shafts and needles. We also manufacture stones with special radii and features appropriate for plunge processes commonly used to finish surfaces of irregular shaped parts. Wheels for flat or spherical superfinishing processes are also available.
