Heavy Duty Honing Tool System
Versatile modular tooling system that allows customers to select combinations of stone carriers and stone supports, to provide the optimum honing solution for any bore diameter (and material type) for honing a large range of part sizes with minimal setup time. This robust tooling system is engineered for efficiency and durability and backed by Delapena’s tradition of quality.
Available in one (short), two (standard) or three (long) stone length versions, and in either two stones and two guides (HD2) or four stones (HD4), this system will suit most applications.
Compatible with most brands of honing machines and replaces competitors' modular tooling systems.
The hone head fits directly onto the machine drive shaft and incorporates a universal joint and rotary expansion system. Available in 1, 2 or 3 stone length designs (101.6, 203.2 and 304.8mm).
Adaptors are available to fit to other makes of drive shafts.
Stone sets are available as either two stones and two guides (HD2) or four stones (HD4) and attached / removed from the carrier adaptor easily using the HD mounting tool. Stone platform houses 2 honing sticks.
Where bore irregularities, such as ovality need to be corrected, two stones and two guides should always be specified.
Super abrasive stone platforms are available with either single (SHD2) or double (SHD4) stone versions. Delapena heavy duty stone sets can be used on Delapena standard (1208) and major (1210) vertical hone heads.
Stone sets and guides are mounted onto the carriers. The carriers are mounted into the hone head and expanded / contracted via the rotary expansion system. Each carrier set cover a specified diameter range.
For bore diameters greater than 195mm, additional rigidity is provide to the honing head assembly by incorporating a carrier support. The carrier support steadies the stone carriers and stones to ensure consistent performance. As with the stone carriers, stone supports cover the same specific diameter range as the stone carriers.
Heavy Duty Honing Oil
To complement the Delapena heavy duty tooling system, specially developed HD honing oil is available for heavy stock removal.
Drive shafts are available to special order according to customer specific requirements of length and connection type to fit other Honing machines such as Gehring and Sunnen.
