The fine quality of surface is an important factor to decide the performance of manufacture product. Magnetic abrasive finishing is a machining process in which work piece surface is machined by removing the material as micro-chips by abrasive particles in the presence of magnetic field in the finishing zone to create the force towards the metal piece with abrasive particles. To improve the machining efficiency of the electromagnetic abrasive finishing (MAF) technique there many other methods which we are using earlier for finishing will not produce much fine surface, to obtain a good of finished some new method has been proposed out of which one method is known as electromagnetic abrasive grinding or finishing, that is a surface grinding technique in which a magnetic field is used to force abrasive particles with iron particles against the target surface. Magnetic field-assisted finishing (MAF) processes have been developed for a wide variety of applications including the manufacturing of medical components, fluid systems, optics, dies and molds, electronic components, micro electro mechanical systems, and mechanical components. As we know magnetic flux density and voltage has significant effect on magnetic abrasive machining. But not much work is done on the mechanical parameters related with this machining process. Mixture of iron particles (Fe particles of mesh no. 300) and abrasive particles (SiC, Al2O3) having different mesh size. It has been observed that the increase in rotational speed, weight of abrasive in mixture and mesh number (iron particles and abrasive particles) improve the surface finish.
