Redefining precision honing

In the realm of precision engineering, where tolerances are measured in microns and surface finishes are paramount, the honing process could be described as prevailing in accuracy.

Among the various honing machines available, the Delapena PowerHone EXL is said to be a champion, delivering exceptional performance, versatility, and ease of use.

At the heart of the PowerHone EXL lies a robust design, crafted with heavy-duty components to ensure high stability and vibration-free operation. This translates to consummate precision, with honed surfaces achieving mirror-like finishes and dimensional accuracy exceeding even the most stringent requirements. The machine's rigid construction also means it can tackle large and heavy workpieces with confidence, making it ideal for diverse industrial applications.

Beyond its robust structure, the PowerHone EXL features an impressive array of technical features that elevate its capabilities to new heights. The electronically controlled stroking mechanism guarantees consistent and precise honing strokes, regardless of the workpiece size or material. This level of control allows for fine-tuning the honing process to achieve the desired surface finish and geometry with high repeatability.

Furthermore, the PowerHone EXL's ensures consistent material removal and also extends the lifespan of the honing stones, leading to reduced downtime and maintenance costs.

Versatility is another key strength of the honing machine. Its spindle speeds cater to a wide range of workpiece diameters and materials, from soft aluminium to hardened steel. This adaptability makes it a valuable asset for any workshop or production line, eliminating the need for dedicated honing machines for different applications.

However, the PowerHone EXL's real advantages lay in its integration of Delapena's innovative iHone technology. This intelligent system elevates the machine beyond basic automation, transforming it into a collaborative partner in the honing process. iHone allows the operator to monitor critical parameters like pressure, vibration, and stroke length. This ensures not only excellent surface finishes and consistent dimensional accuracy, but also minimises material waste and optimises cycle times.

Additionally, iHone's data provides the user with valuable feedback for process optimisation and predictive maintenance. The operator can fine-tune parameters and extend the lifespan of the machine. This proactive approach minimises downtime and maximises productivity.

With its robust design, advanced features and versatility, Delapena describes the PowerHone EXL as more than just a machine; it says it is an intelligent honing partner powered by iHone technology.
