SINGLE PASS HONING
When properly applied, Single Stroke® Honing is a quick, cost-effective method to get a precise bore size, geometry and surface finish. Parts made of cast iron, powdered metals, ceramic, glass, graphite and other free cutting materials with L/D ratios up to 1:1 are ideal for the process. Single-pass bore sizing is also appropriate for splined bores or longer L/D ratios if cross holes or other interruptions are present to allow chip flushing. Sunnen offers a range of single-pass plated-diamond tooling for the VSS-2 for precise, accurate and consistent bore sizing.
Other standard features of the VSS-2 include an electric rotary index table and solid tool holder. Available options include floating or rigid/adjustable tool holders, 12- and 16-port programmable rotary air unions for index output, base coolant evacuation pump, automatic lubrication system, work area light kit, stack light and tool alignment indicator.
Sunnen will also show the new SV-20 honing system, the first competitively priced large-part machine for job-shop part production with a true linear, vertical, servo-stroking system to produce precision bore geometries on compressors, oilfield components, automotive/truck blocks and similar parts. Ideal for job shops and repair facilities, the SV-20 is equipped with a variable-speed 15 rpm to 550 rpm, 4.1 kW (5.5 hp) spindle motor, powerful enough to drive two-stage, metal-bond, diamond abrasives for short cycle times with high accuracy and minimal labor.
The SV-20 linear stroking system keeps the honing tool concentric with the bore throughout the full stroke length to produce a consistent diameter from top to bottom of the bore. The machine’s work envelope of 915 mm x 1015 mm (36 in x 40 in), front-loading design, and weight capacity up to 680 kg (1500 lb) combine for versatility in processing a wide range of large parts. The SV-20 can be used to hone bores with inside diameters from 19 mm to 200 mm (0.75 in to 8.00 in).
The PLC-controlled SV-20 utilizes a color touch screen, with a toggle switch to jog for fast setup. The swiveling operator panel can be adjusted for viewing from a variety of positions. A hand wheel on the machine allows left/right positioning of the column on its 760 mm (30 in) X-axis. The machine comes standard with a 208 l (55 gal) internal coolant system equipped with two standard canister filters. The SV-20 rotary servo tool feed system can be used with two-stage hone heads to complete roughing and finishing without stone changes for faster processing times.
The machine is compatible with all of Sunnen’s past and current tooling for CK/CV/SV-series machines, including diamond abrasive hone heads and brushes, GHSS single-stage hone heads with CBN or diamond abrasives and brushes, and GHTS hone heads for two-stage honing with CBN or diamond abrasives. The SV-20 is available with a 400V/50Hz/3Ph or 460V/60Hz/3Ph electrical system. Options include a T-slot base, manual rollover cradle for engine blocks, and sump pump to allow connection to an external coolant supply. www.sunnen.com
