Modular honing machine

  • 30-Jun-2008 09:06 EDT


Sunnen’s SV-1000 vertical CNC honing machine series is based on a modular design, engineered to scale up from a single-spindle machine to a fully automated multi-spindle unit. Designed for part diameters of 3 to 65 mm, the machines can size bores with 0.25 µm accuracy. They are suited to diesel fuel injectors, gears, small engine cylinders/connecting rods, and hydraulic/pneumatic components. The single-spindle module allows for future automation with removable side enclosure panels. It is available with a fixed tooling plate or servo rotary table. Automated versions can include the servo rotary table or linear part transfer, integrated part handling systems, and up to four spindles. Innovations include a servo-controlled stroking drive that responds smoothly to motion profiles generated by the control, and a load-sensing tool feed system that senses where and how much to hone the bore.

After many years of flat-lining in the supply of new commercial jet engines—with improved models, but with designs dating back to the late 1990s, relying on a continuous path of evolutionary development—a new generation of super-efficient powerplants is entering service, introducing many technologies that will also be applied to future engines.
SAE International is working with the joint-venture initiative looking to deploy a high-powered DC fast-charging network for battery electric vehicles (BEVs) covering long-distance travel routes in Europe.
Fuel efficiency—and the economic and ecological benefits associated with it—continues to be the white rabbit of the global aviation industry. While engine builders look toward composites and electrification, and airframe designers toward lightweighting and aerodynamics, engineers at NASA’s Glenn Research Center recently completed testing of a novel concept: the boundary layer ingesting propulsor.
