Burnishing allows for a 20% to 80% reduction in cycle time compared to polishing, grinding, and honing; and can often be integrated in the same machining center. Superoll hardened and highly polished roller burnishing tools from Sugino Corp. USA (Itasca, IL) integrate into machining centers to eliminate secondary processes, such as grinding and honing, and produce a 0.1-to-0.8-micron finish in one pass without removing additional material.
For inner- and outer-diameter processing, tapered or flat rolls allow for precision adjustments and increased surface hardness. A standalone centerless outer-diameter roller burnishing tool is ideal for processing pins, shafts, and rods. Free smartphone app facilitates tool selection based on machining conditions.
