Development of a New Plate Polishing Technique with an Instantaneous Tiny-Grinding Wheel Cluster Based on Magnetorheological Effect
A new plate polishing technique with an instantaneous tiny-grinding wheel cluster based on the magnetorheological (MR) effect is presented in this paper, and some experiments were conducted to prove its effectiveness and applicability. Under certain experimental condition, the material removal rate was improved by a factor of 20.84% as compared with the conventional polishing methods with dissociative abrasive particles, while the surface roughness of the workpiece was not obviously increased. Furthermore, the composite of the MR fluid was optimized to obtain the best polishing performance. On the basis of the experimental results, the material removal model of the new plate polishing technique was presented.
