SUNNEN Products has released a new range of honing machines based on the MPS electronic hone head expansion system.
Available from Watson Specialised Tooling , the STH-Series is a medium duty tube honing machine that combines the best features of other Sunnen machines. Bore diameters from 1.0" up to 18" may be honed on these machines.
Stock removal rates of up to 21 cubic inches an hour in soft steel are attainable, and machine lengths cover the range from a two metre stroke up to an eight metre stroke.
A PLC control and digital display allows complete control and monitoring of machine conditions.
The Sunnen modular honing tool system continually compensates for stock removal and stone wear to keep the machine running at peak efficiency at all times.
A built in load meter indicates the high and low spots in the bore, allowing the operator to adjust the stroke length to correct these inaccuracies.
These machines are quick to set up and easy to operate, and producing accurate, fine finished honed cylinders is simple.
