Honing is a precise machining process with high standards for the resulting form, dimension and surface quality. Additionally, tolerances can even be further reduced by honing processes. Essential for the adherence of high quality is the coaxial interaction of the honing tool and the workpiece. This presented work investigates the fundamental kinematic and dynamic process during the internal long-stroke honing process. The focus of the investigation is the honing gimbal, which realizes the displacement and tilting compensation movements. Based on a substituted mechanical system, mathematical differential equation system was prepared in order to characterize the four degrees of freedom of the honing gimbal in relation to the honing tool. The next section describes the experimental setup, which allows to determine these micrometer movements, followed by the measurement results. The results cover the displacement compensation movements by the modification of the rotation speed from 50 min-1to 2500 min-1.
