Abrasive Flow Machining (AFM)

The very inventor of Abrasive Flow Machining (AFM), Extrude Hone leads the industry in polishing and deburring solutions, especially for complex internal shapes and targeted surface challenges. The Extrude Hone abrasive flow machining AFM process utilizes an abrasive media for polishing and deburring components. he media is applied at high pressure

to change the surface characteristics of the machined component. Highly efficient and accurate, abrasive flow machining (AFM)is ideal for radiusing, surface stress relief, polishing, geometry optimization and deburring. Individually configurable in designs that can be built to meet any production requirements, Extrude Hone abrasive flow machining (AFM) can be tailor-made to suit your shop.

ONE WAY FLOW

The die & mold industry dedicated machine. With the invention of the Abrasive Flow Machining process, Extrude Hone Corporation developed an entirely new finish machining tool – a plastic, abrasive laden polymer with very special properties that allow it to selectively and controllably abrade surfaces that it flows across. A broad family of these abrasive medias are available to achieve a wide range of results from fine honing to aggressive surface removal.

With standard Abrasive Flow Machining the abrasive media is extruded back and forth through a workpiece. With ONE WAY FLOW Abrasive Flow Machining, the abrasive media flows through the tooling and workpiece in only one direction.

ECOFLOW

The ECOFLOW series machines are specifically designed for the small die maker or job shop owner. It is the ideal economical alternative for processing carbide dies for precise and repeatable surface finish improvement as well as short-run polishing and radiusing of surfaces and edges of critical components. ECOFLOW is the solution when there can be no compromise in edge and surface improvement conditioning.
The ECOFLOW machine uniformly smooths and blends in features, automatically and controllably, to the same quality level as its larger counterparts in the Extrude Hone AFM Product Portfolio. AFM technology can consistently finish internal curved and complex surface locations which are unreachable by any other means.
