Characterization of the Magnetic Abrasive Finishing Method and Its Application to Deburring
This paper analyzes the effectiveness of using Magnetic Abrasive Finishing (MAF) to remove burrs on drilled holes located on planes. Basic elements of the equipment in this method are a magnetic inductor; powder with magnetic and abrasive properties, which serves as the cutting tool; and the face electromagnetic inductor and the vibrating table, which were developed for deburring and finishing on flat surfaces. The performance of magnetic abrasive powders produced by industry is also evaluated. A new technique was developed to compare the performance of the magnetic abrasive powders and to find the powder that is appropriate for finishing and deburring drilled holes placed on a plane steel surface.
