Abstract: Honing is to sharpen. It is a finishing process. In this process we use a stone that we call a hone to sharpen the workpiece. The process is slow and requires time. It also requires constant supervision. The paper focuses on the increase in precision of the finished job and reduction in need for constant supervision. This system uses a stepper motor to push the hone forward. It also uses sensors to analyze the hone position. The system is easy to install and attach to the honing machine. It is also cost effective as it only has a onetime installation cost and will reduce the possibility of hone breakage or unfinished workpieces.
