Bore Honing And Finishing Systems

The Barnes HH line of horizontal spindle bore-honing machines is normally used to process the cavities of rod or barrel shaped components. Considering the box beam base design, combined with the easy access open face configuration, the HH series equipment is well-suited to hone very long and/or very heavy components.

Contemporary applications include oil-patch and military equipment. The spindle structure and power, clamping and tool design aspects of the system are all engineered to work well with both conventional and superabrasive tooling. Honing tool expansion can be activated with either hydraulic or servomotor drives. All aspects of the tooling expansion are programmable. Updated features include a PLC control interfaced with an operator-friendly color touchscreen panel. An integrated modem is also included to facilitate off-site analysis, service and support. Safety features, such as available laser beam guarding, are now offered. The equipment is designed to work with the hydraulically actuated clamping/workholder system.
