Gehring’s Lifehone L630, a modular honing machine for precision metal components, offers a systematic approach to help ensure an efficient manufacturing process. Features include standard part applications that can be honed on the Lifehone range from sun gears to connecting rods, hydraulic sleeves and injector pump components.

Small bore diameters often place different demands on the production technology than larger ones. The L630 has components in a modular design. Depending on customer requirements and the product spectrum to be finished, the machine is equipped with matching honing units. The Gehring honing control allows for precision controlled stroke speeds and reversal precision. An optional feature allows the stroke to be executed via a ballscrew or a linear motor.

The honing center can be equipped with one or two honing spindles. Depending on the machining task and the batch size, this type of machine can be equipped with a fixed or rotary table and up to eight workstations. Stations can also be used for measuring or brushing operations. The single-spindle version of the Lifehone series has a compact design and small footprint – an advantage to customers with limited space or those who need to frequently change the type of part that needs to be honed. This flexible two-spindle honing center allows for a two-stage honing process and shorter overall honing processing times.
