Sunnen introduces digital control of spindle speed, power-stroke speed and extra strokes on its SH-2000 job shop honing machine, designed as a flexible tool for bore sizing/finishing on a variety of parts. The Siemens PLC/HMI brings efficiency advantages to a machine platform proven to have appeal in operations where parts, material types, and setups must change frequently and efficiently. The SH-2000 is especially useful for medium to high production of parts with bore diameters from 1.5 to 102 mm (0.060" - 4") in power stroke mode. It is capable of processing a variety of part sizes, configurations and weights with its standard universal honing fixture or optional application specific fixtures.

The 2.25-kW (3-hp) spindle drive delivers 200 to 3,000 rpm, adjustable in fine increments. The 0.75-kW (1-hp) stroker drive produces stroke rates of 60 to 350 spm, with stroke lengths of 6.8 to 170 mm (0.236" to 6.7"). Power stroking ensures constant stroke length and stroke rate, and the machine's standard zero-shutoff and optional automatic size control (ASC) allow high production rates with precise control of bore size, finish and geometry.

The honing machine handles parts with multiple-land and tandem bores, keyways, splines, blind ends and thin walls. It can use all the same tooling and fixturing as predecessor EC and ML machines.
