Honing is a finishing process that allows the internal cylindrical surfaces to be formed to precise dimensions and permits fine finishes. Because stock removal is typically in the 0.001” range or less, the stress and heat levels caused are minimal, virtually eliminating distortion and improving the bore geometry.

We understand the importance of quality and precision in the honing industry. The Upchurch method maintains a higher degree of centerline accuracy than conventional honing as well as continuing to supply metallurgical integrity, roundness and finish to the working surface. If horizontal honing equipment is needed, accuracy is of the upmost importance. Upchurch Machine also has the manpower and equipment necessary to meet your capacity needs.
