Barnes Horizontal Stroke Honing Systems

Product Announcement from Lapmaster-Wolters International

This series offers 3 models capable of honing bore diameters ranging from 2" to 60". Models are available with stroke capacity from 4' to 80' with reciprocating speeds from 10" to 80' per minute (.3m to 27.5m/minute). Spindle horsepower is available up to 75 HP for handling large bore diameters. Ease of operation is enabled by a PLC based control system and operator interface. The Barnes HH Series Horizontal Honing machines offer a perfect solution for those applications that involve processing of long tubes and cylinders to a very high accuracy and surface finish. The HH Series is designed for significant stock removal at accelerated feed rates. This model of machine offers many of the same features – servo or hydraulic expansion systems, programmable stroke control, variable spindle speed operation, short stroking and dwell – as the vertical line of machines.
