Hydraulic cylinder tubes are cold drawn cylinder tubes with the internal surface skived and roller burnished finished or honed. The SRB process is a complex process that is increasing the roughness qualities of the surface. The skiving knives pass first scraping the inside layer of metal. Burnishing rollers are passing afterwards cold working the tube and creating an internal mirror surface finish. Honing is an abrasive machining process that produces a precision surface on a metal workpiece. The process consists of scrubbing an abrasive stone against it along with a controlled path. Honing is primarily used to improve the geometric form of a surface and the surface texture.
Main applications of Hydraulic honed tubing
Honed tubing and SRB tubes (skived and roller burnished tubes) are mostly used as cylinder barrels, such as hydraulic cylinder tube and pneumatic cylinder tubing, which are widely used for manufacturing and repairing hydraulic cylinders and pneumatic cylinders. As honed tube usually has very accuracy dimension tolerance and good surface smoothness, so this product is also used in applications where precision dimension or high smooth surface is needed.
