Experimental Investigations on Magnetic Field Assisted Abrasive Micro Finishing of Austenitic Stainless Steel 304L
This paper presents the experimental investigations on magnetic field assisted abrasive finishing of SS304L flat work material. The experiments are designed using Taguchi design of experiments method. The results indicate that process parameters such as voltage and machining gap are significant on improvement of surface finish (∆Ra). The surface roughness value as low as 0.09 µm is achieved at optimum conditions. The surface topography of the work material is analyzed by means of the surface roughness profile, optical and atomic force micrographs.
