The honing process can deliver remarkable improvements in finished bore size, geometry and surface finish – but only through the use of the proper tools for that specific application. High quality, optimally designed tooling and abrasives are the key to every successful honing operation.
Due to the fact that the right tooling solution is rarely available just off-the-shelf, Barnes has the complete resources and capabilities necessary to develop and build unique new honing tooling and abrasives packages that address long-standing customer problems – and ultimately improve end product performance.
Our method starts from the ground up – with a careful initial analysis and understanding of particular size, surface finish and geometry requirements, material type and hardness, stock removal requirements and production rates. Only then do Barnes engineers being the process of developing a tooling and abrasives package to fulfill the requirements of the application.
Barnes honing tools are available in any size and configuration for diesel cylinder liners, automotives engine cylinder bores, two-cycle engine cylinder bores and many other applications.
The combination of complete in-house resources matched with progressive engineering technology allows for the creation and development of a full range of tooling packages which are unmatched.
Our offering ranges from:
- Superabrasives (CBN or diamond) tools
Vitrified abrasive tools
Combination roughing and finishing tools
Single-pass diamond plated metal bond tools
Plateau honing tools
