Valve Deburring and Flashing Removal

Get the Valve Manufacturer Case Study

When a manufacturer of exhaust valves wanted a better way to deburr aluminum valve bodies, Flex-Hone® technology did more than improve the quality of machined parts. Humphrey Products, a Michigan manufacturer of industrial valves, was losing 5% of its parts during the finishing process. The steel media that was used for deburring would become lodged deep within an aluminum valve’s body, causing the company to discard as many as 150 parts during a typical production run of 3000. Flexible honing provided reliable deburring and surface finishing, including the removal of inside flashing. In addition to saving money by reducing waste, Humphrey Products also improved part quality and manufacturing throughput. How can flexible honing support your application?
