Honing on a lathe

Honing is used in fields requiring high dimensional and shape accuracy. Usually honing is one of the last work steps in the production of machine parts. By integrating honing into our CNC lathes, you reduce the number of work steps and increase productivity. The honing module is integrated directly into the workspace of the lathe.

Advantages of honing on the lathe

  • Shape and position tolerances in the sub-micrometre range can be produced in process quality on a lathe
  • Integrated force and torque sensors for monitoring the honing process
  • Optimum process capability
  • Reduction of work steps and processing times
  • Avoidance of reclamping errors
  • Industry 4.0 - capable due to machine interface

Honing characteristics

  • Reproducible shape and position tolerances with integrated honing on the lathe:
  • Roundness: ≤ 0,5 μm
  • Cylindricity: ≤ 1 μm
  • Straightness: ≤ 0,1 μm
  • Dimensional accuracy: ± 0,5 μm
  • Roughness (Rz): ≤ 0,5 μm
  • Diameter range: 1 – 5 mm (in μm steps) larger diameters on request
