Edge Prep and Tool Honing

"Edge prep, or the honing of cutting tool edges, is known to increase the life of cutting tools by 300% or more. Polishing of cutting tools serves to extend tool life, while also providing additional benefits to the end user," said a Bel Air Finishing Supply spokesperson.

Drag finishers, when employed for the use of cutting tool edge treatment, allow for edge prep (honing) and polishing of coated and noncoated tools of various materials. Both honing and polishing can be done with only one machine, using the same fixturing. This multipurpose machine approach serves to reduce equipment, labor and utility costs while minimizing the required amount of production floor space. The versatility of drag finishers makes them suitable candidates for production cells.

Bel Air Finishing drag finishers come in multiple configurations and sizes to meet specific needs.
