Liner Honing Quality Main Characteristics 921453

The cylinder bore honing quality is an essential factor for a good engine performance and durability. A bad surface finish can result in an excessive lubricant oil consumption, high piston ring wear and scuffing occurrence.
In this paper the most important characteristics of bore honing for cast iron cylinders and their influence in the combustion engine performance are described and discussed.
Despite its importance, the bore honing is commonly undervalued due to various reasons including the difficulty of a practical but sufficient method of quality qualifying.
Some honing commonly misunderstood concepts are detailed and SEM photographs of bore surface from both good and bad finish are presented. At the end of this paper it is also presented a recommendation for a practical evaluation method of honing quality.
