Abstract

Abrasive flow machining (AFM) has become one of the more attractive finishing processes used in applications such as deburring, recast layer removal, radiusing as well as for polishing. Recently, there has been renewed interest in developing low cost/ low pressure modular AFM systems and media. The media which contains the abrasive particles is the key element in ensuring efficient material removal and a good surface finish. In this paper, the authors will present their work on the development and characterization of a new abrasive media formulation
