The most accurate precision process

Honing is used primarily on a workpiece that demands the most accurate, and stringent of tolerances such as cylinders of internal combustion engines.  Honing also improves the geometric form of the surface and can perfect surface finish of tubing or bores. The hone is turned in the bore while being moved in and out of the workpiece, removing stock and providing a high-quality finish.


Improving the geometric form of a surface

Honing is accomplished by abrasive stones of suitable grit, depending on the workpiece characteristic type.  Raymac Grinding uses the highest quality honing stones for the best accuracy and finish. Finishing is done by rotating the proper honing tool against the work surface. The stock removal process takes out any flaked metal and provides the best possible finish pattern. In addition, honing will remove any out of roundness, axial distortion, and taper the workpiece may have.
