Precision Honing of a Stainless Steel Cylinder for the Hydraulic Industry
(Click on thumbnail to enlarge)
When precise holes and exceptional surface finishes are required, our clients rely on Midwest Precision Manufacturing to perform this work with the highest degree of accuracy. We recently completed a project for a customer in the hydraulics industry. The scope of work involved drilling a 10" diameter hole and honing to an 8 RMS surface finish.
Constructed from 316 stainless steel, the cylinder measured 15.5” O.D. x 28” in length. It featured a design with grooves machined into the inner diameter. Our precision honing capabilities allowed us to complete this difficult surface finish through the bore while upholding a very close + 0.001”/- 0.000” tolerance. In addition to dimensional measurement, quality assurance processes included inspection of the surface topography with a high resolution profilometer.
We completed this work on 16 individual cylinders within a narrow one week timeframe. If you would like more information about this project or have a similar one and are interested in a quote, contact us today.
