Superior Thread Rolling’s in-house honing capability provides tight tolerance control and excellent surface finishes on holes. Honing is a critical step in the manufacturing process of many of our parts with the most demanding tolerances and surface finish requirements. Superior Thread Rolling uses honing to finish holes on several types of parts, including clevises, rod ends, axles, fuse pins, pistons, and bushings.

One-Stop Shop for Projects Requiring Honing

Despite the usefulness of honing, there are not many thread rolling shops in our industry capable of providing this value-added service. At STR, we differentiate ourselves by maintaining a fully in-house operation, meaning we do not need to outsource any honing jobs our customers require. While we do not offer honing as a standalone service, we are able to offer honing as a secondary service to any customer who requests it.

Quality Inspections for Honing Services

Moreover, our company is proudly accredited to ISO 9001 and AS9100 criteria, meaning that our comprehensive list of services can be relied upon to meet global quality standards. Superior Thread Rolling maintains our high standards for honing by implementing quality inspection methods.

Air Gages

Air gage inspections are advantages to honing projects for a number of reasons. Firstly, because this gage does not require physical contact with the honed part, there is no risk of marking the surface finish. Additionally, this inspection method is a highly repeatable way to make fast, high-precision measurements.

Sunnen Bore Gages

Sunnen’s bore gages make bore gaging for honing projects a quick and easy process, as they are able to function without using ring gages or micrometers. By investing in inspection equipment that is both fast and precise, STR reduces wait time on our parts without sacrificing quality.
