V line – new flexible honing machine
12. June 2018
If the range of workpieces is large and quantities vary, a variable machining unit is needed. KADIA developed the V line for this constellation. The Vario honing machine is a flexible configurable honing solution with 2 or 3 honing stations.
The machine fits in line between the 2-spindle U line universal machine and the R line, which is equipped with up to 6 spindles, and it takes on their strengths: The structure is similar to the U line, very compact, with an integrated control cabinet. From the R line it inherited the successful round design, meaning that all the stations are placed on a central pillar which ensures optimal access to them.
Due to its wide working space with rotary table for conveying the workpiece, the V line is suitable for a wide range of applications: for small to large workpieces, e.g. from injection pumps to gear wheels and hydraulic components. There are up to 8 stations available, which the user may employ not only for honing, but also for pre-inspection, measuring, deburring and other processes. In addition to this, the concept allows numerous automation solutions to be integrated.
Last but not least, the V line is also equipped with components from the KADIA Smart Dynamic Honing Technology: the intelligent HMC100 honing control with statistics module and optional bore scanning, and the highly dynamic and directly driven LH2 or LH3 honing spindles. Furthermore, the user also benefits from the KADIA typical 5-year warranty on the linear stroke drive. For all information on the new V line, click here.

This is how kinematics and machining work during honing
Whenever there is a need to improve the functional sliding, guiding or sealing properties of contact surfaces in bores, all roads lead to honing.
In the case of high-precision parts, the achieved dimensional, geometrical and surface tolerances are less than 1 µm. But how exactly does this demanding process work? What are its characteristics?
What is typical to honing is, above all, the simultaneous overlaying of...MORE
