Cylinder Honing Tools, Plunge Grinding, & More

We offer multiple grinding and honing processes beyond our centerless grinding machines. This includes ID Honing, which utilizes a cylinder that holds honing stones, and plunge grinding, also known as centerless end-feed grinding. We offer various services because even if both grinding and honing accomplish similar functions, there are key differences between the two processes.

For example, unlike cylindrical grinding, honing tools offer a less aggressive approach to surface refinement. Cylinder honing, known for its precision, excels at achieving a smoother surface finish. In contrast, grinding is more suitable for the removal of substantial material. However, as there are various grinding techniques, honing processes come in different types to cater to specific needs and applications.
