Surface Finishing for Automotive Parts

Posted May 16, 2012 10:36 AM by Brush Research

Flexible honing is ideal for engine block work, cylinder deglazing, and many other automotive surface finishing applications. From brake drum makers to truck engine remanufacturers, auto parts suppliers trust flexible hones to deliver consistent, high-quality surface conditioning and deburring results. Diesel mechanics, motorsports enthusiasts, and car restoration specialists also choose industrial brush tools for their cleaning, polishing, finishing, and surface improvement applications.

Flexible Honing for Automotive Surface Finishing

Built with a stiff metal stem, flexible nylon strands, and abrasive globules that come in a selection of grits and abrasive types, the Flex-Hone is self-centering, self-aligning, and self-compensating for wear. In addition to surface finishing and cross-hole deburring, the Flex-Hone is ideal for surface preparation (roughing) and for achieving a plateau surface finish for improved oil retention. Whether mounted in a machine or in an electric hand drill, the Flex-Hone can be used with auto parts such as camshafts and valves, clutches and brakes, engine cylinders and liners, and crankshafts and piston pins.

Abrasive Nylon Brushes for Auto Parts

There's also a full line of abrasive nylon brushes for cleaning, deburring, polishing, and restoring auto parts. Automotive brushes are used in applications ranging from deburring cast-aluminum engine heads to polishing small inside-diameter (ID) holes on machined parts. NamPower brush tools are used to clean threads, stabilize surfaces, and remove rust and corrosion. There are also crimped wire wheels, knotted wire wheels and knotted wire cups that can remove automotive paint and excess molded rubber.

What's Your Auto Parts Application?

From wet cylinders and dry cylinders to crankshafts and crank bores, flexible honing tools and industrial abrasive brushes provide consistent, high-quality surface finishing. So what's your automotive application for flexible honing? How about for automotive brushes or the NamPower™ line of brush tools? Have you used a crimped wire wheel for tube end deburring or a knotted wire wheel for weld finishing?
