Air-Gage Equipped Vertical CNC Honing--Sunnen Products

Sunnen's SV-1005 series vertical CNC honing system is available with an integrated air gaging system to provide closed-loop control of tool size, along with downloadable SPC data. Matched with the company's diamond-plated CGT Krossgrinding tools or MMT TurboHone multi-stone mandrel, the air-gage equipped machine can automatically control hole size to accuracies of 0. 25 micron without operator intervention, working in a size range of 3-mm to 65-mm diameter.

Sunnen's SV-1005 series vertical CNC honing system is available with an integrated air gaging system to provide closed-loop control of tool size, along with downloadable SPC data. Matched with the company's diamond-plated CGT Krossgrinding tools or MMT TurboHone multi-stone mandrel, the air-gage equipped machine can automatically control hole size to accuracies of 0.25 micron without operator intervention, working in a size range of 3-mm to 65-mm diameter. It is especially useful for automated, high CpK production of small engines, hydraulic valves/bodies, fuel injectors, gears, compressor parts, turbocharger housings and gun barrels, in medium and high volumes.

The new Etamic air gaging system controls bore diameter and geometry by taking post-process measurements of the parts while they are still fixtured on the machine's rotary table. Feedback from the air gage provides the highest possible accuracy for tool-feed control, the company says.

The system matches a tool feed system with CNC control to allow any CNC-experienced machinist to master honing quickly. The control includes several features that put honing expertise at the fingertips of novices. Using measurements from the air-gage system, it allows the operator to select from a library of "problem" bore images (taper, barrel, and so on) to match the part on the machine. The servo-controlled stroke system ensures a consistent crosshatch pattern and can dwell in any part of the bore, end-to-end, selectively removing stock for straightness and roundness.
