The magnetic abrasive machining process is developed as a unconventional machining process. It is frequently adopted in metal manufacturing industries for micro level surface finishing of work piece with the help of Magnetic abrasive particles and magnetic force applied in the machining zone. It is accurate and more time saver than conventional machining methods and able to produce smooth and finished metal components. The objective of this paper to provide a comprehensive review on the recent advancement of EAM process carried out by different researcher in different mechanical or other fields. The effect of different mechanical as well as electrical parameters such as rotational speed of work piece, voltage, magnetic flux density, abrasive particles size and their concentration with iron partials and stand of distance on the performances of Material Removal Rate and surface roughness (Ra).. On the basis of review, it is observed that the rotational speed of work piece, voltage and mesh size of abrasive particles have a great effect on EAM process.
