I.D. Vertical Honing of an Aluminum Assembly

At CT Hone, Inc. one of our specialties is providing honing services for the aerospace industry.  One of our clients approached us to vertical hone an aluminum swashplate, a component of a Flight Safety assembly.  We honed four holes, each of a different size, all meeting extremely tight tolerances of + .0007".  We also removed .003"/.004" of stock and as specified in the customer supplied operation sheet and 2D CAD drawing, to give the holes a material microfinish of 63.
