Honing

Honing

The main purpose of honing is to finish the inside or outside surface of a round tube to a precise geometric concentricity and parallelism throughout the length of the tube. Honingcraft hones tubes with diameters between 12 mm and 1,000 mm with lengths of up to 20 metres using our state of the art, cnc controlled honing machines. 

Our facility allows for external and internal honing as required by any hydraulic cylinder manufacturing company. Honing any tube to a fine, smooth finish will give a signature “crosshatch” where the surface was honed. 

Welding cylinder tubes often results in distortion of the material and we offer a hone after-weld service, at no extra cost, where our customers are supplied with honed or unhoned material, and after machining and welding the material, it is returned to Honingcraft for the final honing process. This ensures the best possible tolerances on welded cylinders.
