Hones / super abrasives

To achieve optimum results during honing operations, special care and experience must be used in the selection of the cutting material. Our first step is to ask for all data relevant to the process (e.g., part sketches, material, allowances). Our application engineers will then determine the specification of the hones by means of the size and type of the abrasive grain, type of metal bond, concentration of the super abrasive grain, as well as additional bonding additives to meet your requirements. Continous optimisations by our application engineers ensures that your honing process stays at the forefront of technology.

Our hones are made with grite sizes from D251 to D046 (B251 to B046) according to FEPA and in fine grit with grain sizes to below 2μm average grain size. Our quality assurance guarantees grain size distribution within very low deviations. Custom grit sizes above D251 (B251) are available on request.

Metal bond CBN honing stones

Metal bond CBN honing stones are especially suited for efficient machining of the following materials:

  • case hardened steel (approx. 60±2 HRC)
  • high-alloy steels
  • VA stainless steels
  • centrifugal cast coatings
  • titanium-aluminium alloys

Metal bond diamond honing stones

Metal bond diamond honing stones are especially well suited for efficient machining of the following materials:

  • soft steels (welded)
  • cast iron (GG25 to GGG60)
  • bronze, brass and other non-ferrous heavy metals
  • NiKaSil, LDS, APS, RSW, CBC, PTWA (Plasma Transferred Wire Arc thermal spraying)
  • various ceramics (e.g., silicon nitride, aluminium oxide)
  • other wear-resistant coatings

Resin bond honing stones with micron size diamond grit

Resin bond honing stones with micron size diamond grit, especially well suited for:

  • Finishing of aluminium (hard anodised) to Ra<0.06μm
  • Finishing of hard chrome plating to Ra<0.1μm
  • Finishing of grey cast iron, low percentage of bend graphite flakes
  • Honing of AluSil or DISPAL, basis for exposure of the silicon crystals
  • Honing of AluSil or DIPAL, exposure of the silicon crystals

Compact honing stones

Compact honing stones are inserted directly in the tool without carriers, i.e., they have the appropriate tapered expansion angle already on it.

The width is tolerated approximately 10-15 μm less. On request the compact honing stones are supplied with additional 0.1 mm in length, so that each can be adapted to the respective tool.

Custom shapes

For special applications we fabricate sintered honing ring segments and electroplated honing sleeves in all available grit sizes for the use on our shell or custom honing tools.

Our metal bond hones are specified, for example, in length x width x height / coating thickness. Various shapes are available for different applications.
