Background/Objectives: With innovative advancements in manufacturing industry, hard and intense materials are being created. Inconel 625 is one such material, which is a nickel based super alloy having high temperature applications. Due to its materialistic properties, Inconel 625 is difficult to machine. In the present research work, magnetic abrasive finishing process has been utilized to finish inconel 625 flat surfaces. Experiments are designed and performed to finish Inconel 625 by using magnetic abrasive finishing process. Three important process parameters i.e. processing time, weight %age of abrasive and pole rotational speed are selected to perform the experiment and effects of these parameters on material removal are analyzed. Methods/Statistical analysis: An ANOVA has been used to analyze the results and graphs to show effects of input parameters on material removal are generated using design expert software. Findings: Experimental study indicates that all the selected input parameters have significant impact on the material removal. Applications: Inconel 625 flat surface successfully finished using Magnetic Abrasive Finishing.
