Application of Rare Earth Permanent Magnet on Magnetic Abrasive Machining
Because of the raw material elements and its purity and so on, the Nd-Fe-B permanent magnet, the strongest magnetic material, which needs artificial synthesis, can hardly be used directly. The performance of the permanent magnet has not yet been greatly developed owing to the limitation of the artificial synthesizing technology, of the powder sintering technology and that of the application. In this paper, the magnetic abrasive machining method as a new application is put forward, and from this viewpoint, are discussed the performance and the processing technology of the permanent magnet and the magnetic abrasive machining method. A sintering route combining the direction heat treatment technique to increase the magnetic energy is suggested.
