LAPMASTER WOLTERS has invested into further

development of the Abrasive Flow Machining (AFM)

for Free Form Honing (FFH).

The FFH Process utilizes an abrasive evenly dispersed

in a putty-like substance. The abrasive

media has the unique ability to take the shape

of any hole geometry. This process accomplishes

precision polishing, deburring & edge radius

generation and is especially designed for work

pieces which need a uniform polished surface, regardless

of their shape. The more difficult the id

shape is, the easier it is for AFM. Common polishing

and deburring machines were always limited

when facing odd shaped holes, very small holes

and cavities or edges. Due to the various types of

media that is available, holes as small as 0.008"

(0.203 mm) can now be machined effectively. Surface

finish generation as low as 4 μ” Ra is possible

and mostly determined by the type & size of

abrasive used. Conventional or super-abrasives

can be used.

LAPMASTER WOLTERS AFM is available in two

machine models/sizes with 6 different modes/

cylinder sizes and pressure ranges. Low costs per

part, and a very cost effective clamping-retaining

tooling. Another striking feature of the AFM is the

simple and fast tooling change-over for new parts

and its menu driven programmable system. The

cycle time depends on the material hardness and

pre-AFM surface finish to be removed.

This machine is made for several industries such as

Extrusion, Castings, Tool & Die, EDM Shops, Screw

Machine Shops, Valve Manufacturers, Gear Grinding

Facilities, Hydraulic and Medical Components,

Automotive, Aerospace and many more.
