Honing machines are used to generate the cross hatch pattern on the liners of the engine cylinders for improving their efficiency. This proposed work highlights the structural modification of a Plateau Honing machine by scaling down the geometry of the machine to reduce the overall size of the machine and also to reduce the cost while keeping its functional components undisturbed. Structural design is a key component that contributes to increased efficiency in manufacturing processes, as well as other advantages such as reduced rejection. Modeling of the structure is done to easily identify and arrange its functioning components, as the manufacturing industries suggest newer and creative designs. The scope of the work focuses on testing the structural integrity of the modifications performed by using Finite Element Method analysis to verify the changes and optimizing the size and shape of the machine.
