Advantages of skiving and roller burnishing over honing in hydraulic cylinder manufacturing
Hydraulic cylinders are an integral part of our lives and are widely used in mobile and industrial applications. Mobile applications cover the applications of hydraulics in off-road equipment and vehicles. Construction, Mining equipment, Tower cranes, forklift trucks and agricultural machinery are excellent examples of mobile applications. Industrial applications cover several applications in Material Handling equipment, Defense, Waste Management, Trucks and Oil field equipment etc.
Skiving and roller burnishing offer several advantages over honing in hydraulic cylinder manufacturing. Here are some of the key benefits:
1. Improved Surface Finish: Skiving and roller burnishing can produce a smoother and more consistent surface finish than honing. This is because the burnishing process uses a hardened roller to literally smooth out the surface, removing any high spots and creating a more uniform finish.
2. Tighter Tolerances: Skiving and roller burnishing can achieve tighter tolerances than honing. This is because the skiving process removes any tool marks or imperfections in the hole, creating a more precise and uniform bore diameter.
3. Faster Cycle Times: Skiving and roller burnishing can often be completed in a single pass, whereas honing may require multiple passes. This can result in faster cycle times and increased productivity.
4. Reduced Tooling Costs: Skiving and roller burnishing can be performed using a single tool, whereas honing typically requires multiple tools. This can result in lower tooling costs and reduced setup times.
5. Increased Component Life: The improved surface finish and tighter tolerances achieved through skiving and roller burnishing can result in longer component life and improved reliability.
Overall, skiving and roller burnishing offer several advantages over honing in hydraulic cylinder manufacturing. They can produce a smoother and more consistent surface finish, achieve tighter tolerances, and often result in faster cycle times and lower tooling costs.
