Manufacturers of large hydraulic valve bodies face a challenge aligning and finishing the bores once the bodies have been stacked.
Engis has designed a three axis single-pass bore finishing system to address this challenge. The FPM-3X enables bore finishing after stacking of the valves, which improves overall cylindricity and roundness. Improving the quality of the valve body itself results in better performance and less downtime in the field.
Engis provides full system solutions for flat lapping and precision bore finishing applications. We supply not only the capital equipment and machine accessories but a full range of tools and consumables. In addition to our Single Pass Bore Finishing Process, we now also offer multi-stroke honing systems. Our process develop labs can assist you with your flat lapping and precision honing requirements at no charge.
