IMTS 2018 Conference: Innovations in Precision Bore Finishing

IMTS 2018 Conference: Innovations in Precision Bore Finishing

How advancements in honing and lapping take today’s bore tolerances to new levels.


About the presentation:
Honing and lapping have been widely thought of as manual, low production processes, highly dependent on skilled operators. But today’s honing and lapping systems are anything but that…they are highly automated and produce consistent, repeatable bore geometry with tolerances almost too small to measure.

Registration is now open so check out the IMTS 2018 website for more information.

This presentation will discuss the rapid advances in honing and lapping, including bore geometry, surface tribology (plateau finishes, bearing ratios), burr conditions (torn and folded metal) and edge condition, among others.

Plan to attend The IMTS 2018 Conferences to give you deeper insight into new manufacturing technologies & ideas!
