Bore Honing & Single Pass Honing Machines
Since 1907, Barnes Bore Honing and Finishing Systems has been considered a world leader in developing innovative new technology and processes to help manufacturers improve product performance, quality and cost. The earliest Barnes honing machines were the first-ever to make honing a practical and efficient means of finishing automotive cylinder bores (cylinder honing). As production requirements increased, so too did Barnes' ability to meet the need for greater speed, accuracy and efficiency. Barnes introduced a multitude of new products and innovations including multiple spindle machines, automatic part load/unload and transfer, automatic tool changing devices, in process part gauging, servomotor controlled honing stone expansion systems and single pass bore finishing. This long history of innovation has culminated in a new generation of machines, tools, fixtures and abrasives that deliver improvements in honing and bore finishing accuracy, surface finish, productivity and efficiency that were unimaginable just a decade ago.
