Deburring & Finishing Technologies: Your Source for Extrude Hone Media in Cleveland, OHMany Cleveland OH industries use abrasive flow machining (AFM) as part of their manufacturing process. AFM provides an effective and efficient means to smooth, polish, and remove burrs and other surface imperfections from a workpiece. AFM is used to finish a wide range of components.

The success of any AFM job depends on the abrasive media, or extrude hone media used during the process. Deburring & Finishing Technologies is a leading supplier of extrude hone media in Cleveland OH. We have years of experience providing high-quality abrasive hone media suitable for a wide range of applications, including:

  • Die Polishing

Benefits of Using Deburring & Finishing Technologies’ Extrude Home Media

Extrude home media contains an abrasive material mixed with a polymer base that forms a gritty, putty-like substance. Many different types of abrasive materials are used in extrude home media, such as silicon carbide, aluminum oxide, boron carbide, and diamond abrasives. What abrasive material is used depends upon the composition of the workpiece and the required level of finishing.

During the AFM process, the abrasive media is pushed, or extruded, through and across the workpiece by a hydraulic ram. It erodes away burrs and other imperfections while polishing a piece. The rate at which the abrasive media smooths and removes unwanted material depends on several factors, including media flow rate, particle size, abrasive concentration, viscosity, and workpiece hardness.

Deburring & Finishing Technologies’ offers high-quality extrude hone media suitable for a variety of finishing jobs. Our extrude hone media provides many benefits:

  • Ideal for finishing hard-to-reach inner surfaces
  • Greatly reduced surface roughness
  • Consistent and repeatable results
  • Improves the quality and reliability of a part
  • Roughing and finishing can be completed with a single pass
  • Shorter cycle times

Here are some of our most popular extrude hone media:

  • NM-1000-.33 small hole polishing/sizing in holes ranging from .005 to .020. Typical applications are diesel spray nozzles and fuel rails.
  • Check out our Low viscosity, 150-grit silicon carbide abrasive, at a ratio of 1.5# to 1# of the total chemistry (otherwise known as LV-150-1.5). It is one of our most widely used abrasive media and is often used for vinyl and aluminum extrusion dies, especially in EDM recast. This is best for profile openings that run around .020.
  • Our HV-54-2, another top seller, is high in viscosity and stiff enough to be used in significantly sized holes and castings. The 54-grit abrasiveness of two to one is perfect for improving the finish in large interior dimensions and castings.
  • Gel-like abrasive flow medium for diesel spray nozzles, STM-1200-3 (shear thinning media).
