Roller Burnishing Tool Process
Roller burnishing is a process that gives metal a mirror-like finish to a metal surface. At BTA Heller, we have some of the industry’s best skiving and burnishing tools. The basic principle of Skiving Roller Burnishing is where the skiving tool (a modified floating reamer) produces a geometrically true round bore. This is a prerequisite for successful roller burnishing.
Due to certain industry demands, the Skiving/Roller Burnishing tool assembly has become a combination Reaming/Skiving/Roller Burnishing tool assembly. It is also capable of removing up to as much as .250” total stock removal in one operation.
