Abstract

Most of mold manufacturing procedures have been automated by the introduction of NC machine tools and CAD/CAM systems. But the surface finishing of the mold must be still done manually by well-skilled workers. Though many attempts were made to eliminate this hand work, automatic finishing of mold surface with 3-dimensional curvature has not been achieved yet. A new magnetic abrasive finishing process is proposed as a potential method for the automation of surface finishing. In order to improve the grindability of magnetic abrasive process for WC-Co alloys, a new magnetic abrasive and finishing procedure was developed. This magnetic abrasive and finishing procedure was experimentally confirmed to have a sufficient grindability to finish EDMed surface of WC-Co alloys into mirror surfaces. This magnetic abrasive finishing may contribute to the automatic finishing of WC-Co alloy.
