Abstract

Honing serves an important purpose of generating specified functional characteristics for surfaces besides removing stock and involves the correction of errors resulting from previous machining operations. This article discusses the process capabilities of honing in terms of bore size, bore shape, and stock removal. It illustrates the uses of air, ring, expanding, plug, and bar gages for automatic size control in power stroking of honing tools. The article provides a short description of various honing processes, such as external honing, gear tooth honing, plateau honing, flat honing, electrochemical honing, and hone forming. It also examines various process parameters in microhoning and concludes with information on the applications of microhoning.
