Abrasive flow machining: a case study Flow Tuning

In abrasive flow machining two opposed cylinders extrude a semisolid abrasive media back and forth through passages formed by the workpiece and the tooling (Figure 1). The process is abrasive only where the flow is restricted: the extrusion area. The machining action compares to a grinding or lapping operation as the abrasive media gently and
