Honing System Features Air Gage System For Measurement

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 as well as downloadable SPC data. Combined with the company’s diamond-plated Krossgrinding tools or MMT TurboHone multi-stone mandrel, the machine can control hole size to accuracies of 0. 00001" (0.

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 as well as downloadable SPC data. Combined with the company’s diamond-plated Krossgrinding tools or MMT TurboHone multi-stone mandrel, the machine can control hole size to accuracies of 0.00001" (0.25 micrometers) within a size range of 0.12" to 2.56" in diameter. The machine is useful for automated, high-Cpk production of small engines; hydraulic valves and bodies; fuel injectors; gears; turbocharger housings; and gun barrels in medium and high volumes.

The Etamic air gaging system controls bore diameter and geometry by taking post-process measurements of parts while they are still fixtured on the machine’s rotary table. Setup involves a three-axis handwheel for fine-tuning the tool feed, servo-controlled stroke system and rotary table. The control includes a switchable autocorrect feature for bore shape. Using measurements from the air gage system, it allows the operator to select from a library of “problem” bore images to match the part on the machine. With a a high-torque, belt-driven 10-hp spindle, the machine features a small footprint as well as a cast-polymer base and cast iron column for vibration damping.
