The Flex-Hone® Process (Super finishing) produces a controlled surface
condition unobtainable by any other method. It involves finish, geometry and
metallurgical structure. A high percentage plateau free of cut, torn and folded
metal (with radiused ports).
A resilient, flexible, honing tool with a soft cutting action. The abrasive
(points) globules each have independent suspension that assures the Flex-Hone®
to be self-centering, self aligning to the bore, and self-compensating for wear.
it is a low-temperature abrading process that exposes the undisturbed base metal
structure to produce a long wearing surface. It is a method of developing a
surface on a metal part which is optically smooth and metallurgically free of
any fragmented, amorphous or smeared metal from previous operations. It is accomplished
at a low pressure where the “stones” float.
See and read the various booklets of actual tests covering almost every situation
that will ensure a superior performance in situations depending on surface finish.
The particular type of Flex-Hone® crosshatch is extremely efficient in
providing a multiplicity of oil grooves or valleys for oil retention as opposed
to the often undirectional or uneven valleys common to the conventional type
rigid hone. A crosshatch that usually remains as the cylinder wall has been wear-reduced
by the FlexHone®.
If Your Specifications Call For:
- Developing a surface plateau of over 60%
- Producing an oil holding cross-hatch pattern
- Reducing Ra, Rpk and Rvk values
- Increased bearing area
If You Want benefits of:
What size should I order?
- Lowered oil consumption
- Less blow-by
- Less friction
- Improved sealing surface
A hone tool's diameter is determined by the nominal bore size in
which the tool is to be operate. A cylinder hone is always produced and used in
an oversize condition. The degree of oversize creates pressure and a soft
cutting action on cylinder walls. For example a 1" Flex-Hone tool is ordered if
a 1" bore (I.D.) is to be finished, the built in oversize provides the proper
cut. Remember that all tools are provided in over sized, so do not add inches or
mm's to the ID that you are machining. If the bore size is between
standard Flex-Hone sizes, the next larger standard Flex-Hone should be selected.
