Features

    • Discusses the hybrid Nanofinishing Processes, namely, Electrochemical Grinding (ECG), Electric Discharge Grinding (EDG), etc…
    • Covers both the technological developments and their scientific foundation.
    • Provides a full chapter on the understanding of the nano-cutting using Molecular Dynamic Simulation.
    • Emphasis on the metrology instruments used for measuring surface characteristics including surface roughness.
    • Deals with both traditional (grinding) and the advanced nanofinishing processes (MRF, AFF, etc…).

    Summary

    Finishing is the final operation after a part is sized and shaped. Currently in high tech industries, there is a demand for nano level surface finishing of components. This process is done to improve the surface finish, to remove the recast layer, or to remove surface and sub-surface defects. The result is low friction, longer product life, and low power requirements. Equally important is the aesthetic aspect of the product. This subject is growing very fast from the technology as well as a science point of view. Books on this subject are very limited, particularly those ones that deal with both the science as well as the technology aspects.
