Honing is a finishing process used on a surface - either exterior or bored - of a component to perfect the geometry and finish. Honing creates the exact final sizing of a core and can create the desired finish or pattern on a surface.
During our 50-plus years of providing cutting-edge surfaces and accurately finished components, we have earned a reputation for being specialists in the medical, defense, aerospace, hydraulic, and automotive sectors.

Honing is a finishing process used on the surface — either exterior or bored — of a component to perfect the geometry and finish so it can perform as required. Honing creates the exact final sizing of a core and can create the desired finish or even pattern on a surface.
The process of honing is enacted through the use of degradable stone applied to the surface of the component to achieve the desired finish. These stones can be rotated and/or reciprocated to create the necessary pressure for the right kind of finishing hone.
By removing the stock, creating the proper surface, and providing for extremely accurate straightness and roundness, proper honing promotes an optimal liquid flow across the interior or exterior of a component as well as reducing friction, shearing, and stress against other parts.
When it comes to precision honing, there is an incredible amount to be said for industry experience and success, and Asteroid Precision has a bounty of both. Few other precision grinding companies have been in business for as long as we have, and even fewer have handled the volume, complexity, and breadth of work that we have managed with unparalleled success.
However, we aren’t content to simply rest on our laurels and past experience. Our constant investment in training and the development of our machine operators allows us to get the very best out of both the machines and the people we employee on behalf of our clients.
