We provide contract honing services for bores as small as, but not limited to, .157″ diameter up to 10″ in diameter. Both short and long run applications are welcome; we can qualify your honing operations in our shop or we can run your honing production. We utilize Micromatic 721, 723, and 728 machines along with floating gymbal type fixtures to achieve high tolerance bore size, surface finish, geometry, and surface quality. A honing machine is not easy to learn and maintain; let us take the headache out of your operations by honing your parts in our facilities.
