The Experimental Investigation of Stone Wear in Honing
Honing is a finishing method by means of rotary motion and alternate motion between the honing stones assembled on the honing head and the workpiece. In honing process, the honing stone status is varying all the time and plays important role in cutting property. This paper analyzes the wear mechanism and the cutting property by cylindrical honing experiments. The wear mechanism is analyzed by the topography obtained by a microscope and the cutting property was investigated by two factors: material removal rate and honing force.
