Abrasive Flow Machining

Abrasive Flow Machining, one of Volckening’s advanced manufacturing capabilities, results in highly polished internal passages.

When conventional honing is impractical, a variable viscosity media with imbedded carbide chips is hydraulically forced through the part in a reciprocating process. This allows Volckening to achieve the specified internal finish or dimensions. This process also allows deburring of inaccessible areas quickly and consistently.
