Stand-alone Plunge Measuring Station for Match Honing

15. October 2021

Match honing, the ultimate challenge in honing, is used whenever an exact match between piston and bore is required. First, the plunger is measured pneumatically, then the target diameter of the bore-to-be-honed is calculated individually. The basis for this is a defined match clearance of usually only a few µm. Normally, measurements and plunger handling are carried out fully automatically in a robot loading cell. If complex automation does not pay off, for example in the case of...

X line - new honing center for multiple bores

28. April 2021

KADIA already presented a prototype of the X line at EMO 2019 in Hanover (YouTube-Video). The feedback from visitors to the booth was incredibly positive, so much so that several orders were received in 2020 despite the pandemic.

The X line is a 2-spindle honing center in gantry design that combines flexibility and productivity. The machine's specialty is the sequential machining of several bores on one workpiece carrier.

Inside the X line, two LH3 honing spindles and pneumatic...

Automation made by KADIA: The latest solution for combined deburring and handling of workpieces are multifunctional Deburr-Automation-Cells.

The centerpiece is a robot that performs not only the individual deburring operations, but also all the handling of the workpieces. Which means it loads and unloads a machining center and, if necessary, other connected production units, such as washing or quality stations. The possibilities are extremely diverse.

KADIA designs the...

For the machining of very long bores with diameters < 20 mm, for a long time 3-spindle honing machines were the unsurpassed state of the art. Many KADIA customers all over the world have proven these machines. However, the common process sequence with rough, intermediate and finish honing requires a relatively complex machine concept with high space requirements at corresponding costs.

For KADIA this was one reason to develop a new compact high-performance machine for long-stroke...

New Hybrid Deburr-Robot-Cell - high-pressure jet deburring included

01. September 2020

The mechanical processing of engine blocks leaves many burrs on surfaces, shoulders, bores or threads. Thorough deburring of all edges is therefore required for finishing and assembly. KADIA uses brush deburring for this task whenever possible.

However, with bores < 6 mm in diameter, the limit for brushing has been reached, so that another technology becomes necessary: high-pressure jet deburring. In a new Hybrid Deburr-Robot-Cell, KADIA now integrates both technologies and thus...

Coronavirus: KADIA processes high-precision parts for ventilators

30. April 2020


Medical technology has always been a central field of application for high-precision honing - this is becoming particularly evident these days.

At the Homburg location, KADIA processes linear ball bushings for voice coil motors on a subcontract basis. These electro-mechanical precision actuators control the flow and pressure of breathing gases (air and oxygen) in intensive care ventilators. A failure of these components would be life threatening for the patient.

The quality...

XC Honing Tools – Two-piece precision tools

26. August 2019

The XC honing tools from KADIA are based on a two-piece construction consisting of tool holder and tool body - C therefore stands for "Combined". A clamping unit allows both tool parts to be connected and disconnected in seconds. The XC tool system convinces with its high flexibility and high accuracy. The available diameters range from 4 mm to 40 mm.

The XC tools have been specially designed for the ultra-precise LH2 honing spindles with 17 mm clamping diameter. Like their XM...

RFID tool identification

11. March 2019

In keeping with the motto "Digitization increases process reliability", KADIA presented a field-proven Industry 4.0 application at the AMB exhibition in Stuttgart: A 2-spindle U line honing machine communicated with XM honing tools via a RFID tag. Important benefits are plausibility checks and the storage of information for later data analysis.

XM honing tools are equipped with read and writeable RFID data memories in which tool-specific identification and geometry data is...

EC Brush - new crankshaft deburring machine

13. October 2018

Before crankshafts are finished, careful deburring is a must. In most cases, this is done with the help of a robot that guides the workpieces to a tool console. The programming is extensive, the robot must be taught anew for each workpiece variant.

The EC Brush deburring machine from KADIA is an easy-to-use, cost-effective standard solution. It impresses with high productivity and low support and maintenance costs. The machine has five programmable axes and is flexibly designed...

V line – new flexible honing machine

12. June 2018

If the range of workpieces is large and quantities vary, a variable machining unit is needed. KADIA developed the V line for this constellation. The Vario honing machine is a flexible configurable honing solution with 2 or 3 honing stations.

The machine fits in line between the 2-spindle U line universal machine and the R line, which is equipped with up to 6 spindles, and it takes on their strengths: The structure is similar to the U line, very compact, with an integrated...

This is how kinematics and machining work during honing

Whenever there is a need to improve the functional sliding, guiding or sealing properties of contact surfaces in bores, all roads lead to honing.

In the case of high-precision parts, the achieved dimensional, geometrical and surface tolerances are less than 1 µm. But how exactly does this demanding process work? What are its characteristics?

What is typical to honing is, above all, the simultaneous overlaying of...
