A compliant abrasive tool is investigated in this paper. By the polishing experiment of this abrasive tool, the technique of polishing the large mould free-form surface is acquired. The polishing experiments about the elastic abrasive tool are carried out, which indicates that the abrasive tool has the advantages of the high efficiency, the elasticity and compliant performance. The relation of the deflection and polishing force is investigated and it is concluded that they is approximately linearity. The effect of polishing pressure on the surface roughness is researched by experiment. Polishing quality for the edge of abrasive tool was investigated and presented. These experiment results provide significant foundation for planning polishing path and controlling process parameters to achieve good surface roughness and high efficiency in the next research.
