Design for Experiment Device for Abrasive Flow Machining Based on Pro/E and ANSYA


Article Preview

Abrasive flow machining (AFM) is an effective way to the irregular surface and internal structure of parts polished, debarred, filleted finish machining and so on. Presently abrasive flow machining is primarily applied for aviation, aero-plane in China, but it hasn’t been used widely. Because there are still many technical problems to be solved, such as: the studies on AFM equipment, preparation of abrasive and cutting mechanism. In order to further improvement of AFM technology, a lot of experimental research should be done. In this paper, by Pro/E design for the experimental device, and by ANSYS analysis of mechanical properties, and finally the test device can be verified to meet the test requirements, and achieve the test successfully.
