The term honing comes from the verb “to hone”, which originally meant removal or rubbing an object on a stone. Honing is a machining or fine cutting machining process for almost all materials, by means of which dimensional and formal precision are improved. The best known applications are piston contact surfaces on internal combustion engines and hydraulic components. Material removal is conducted using honing stones that are inserted into the honing tool and can be adjusted in their diameter. To absorb the grinding pressure, the honing awl rests with what are called shoes on the walls of the bore-hole wall. The honing tool moves both in the longitudinal axis and rotationally. A honed surface is generally recognized by its characteristic cross-grind. This improves the anti-friction characteristics because oil can collect in the small furrows. In addition, the process clearly improves the roundness of the machined work piece. In order to prevent the honing stones from becoming clogged with the abrasive, slurry and grinding debris, and so that the shoes do not erode into the bore-hole wall, it is rinsed abundantly with honing oil.
