New Smart Honing Technology Makes a 60 Millionths Tolerance Look Generous "We don't believe it!" -- that's how experienced machinists reacted to their first encounter with a machine tool that had produced nine bores per part with only 0.000020" (0.5 µm) variation, all day long, with essentially no operator attention. That's 2.21 Cpk process capability. It's game changing technology in a shop like Waltz Brothers Inc., a precision grinding and machining operation where these parts -- flight-critical hydraulic pumps -- are produced by the hundreds every year.
