A Study on the Characteristics of Micro Electropolishing for Stainless Steel
Electropolishing, the anodic dissolution process without contact with tools, is a surface Treatment method to make a surface planarization using an electrochemical reaction with low current density. Stainless steel can be put various applications which require purity and high precision surface of products. The aim of this study is to investigate the characteristic of electropolishing effect for stainless steel workpieces. In order to analyze the characteristics of electropolishing effect, surface roughness and micro-burr size were measured in terms of machining conditions such as current density, machining time and electrode gap. The tendencies about improvement of surface roughness by electropolishing for stainless steel workpieces were determined.
