Zala Machine is a top Honing service supplier. We provide high quality honing services to finish ID bores that require a tight tolerance with a high quality finish. Regularly we hold tolerances of under .0005″ with finishes in the range of 4 rms. Utilizing top of line Sunnen equipment our honing shop finishes bores from under 3/8″ diameter up to 24″ diameter. With tube lengths up to 154″ long.
The honing process utilizes rotating stones to cut a perfect circular bore. With this process we are able to closely control size and leave a mirror finish that cannot be achieved with any other process. The parts that we hone are used in many different applications including hydraulic cylinders, engine blocks, aircraft landing gear and many many others. Basically any application that requires a precision smooth bore will need a honing process to get it to size.
We offer our honing service as a finishing process for parts that our customers provide. We will work as a subcontractor to compliment your CNC capabilities and offer high quality service for a fair price, with quick turnaround times. We are also specialists in machining honed parts from scratch, and can provide complete parts with honing before and after final machining if required. Machining and honing parts under one roof allows us to do 1. rough honing, 2. finish machining, 3. final finish honing. This step by step process guarantees that honed bores are flawless with no machining to scratch the bore.

You as our customer provide the material of the tube that you need, the final size and finish required as well as the length.
