The use of abrasive fluidized bed equipment in a broad range of manufacturing processes is reviewed. In particular, applications in deburring and finishing of complex-shaped metal components, in super-finishing of dies for injection molding, in cleaning and polishing of electronic devices, and in surface preparation of tungsten carbide milling tools are reviewed. Attention is focused on the effects of the most important process parameters, such as machining time, abrasive type and mesh size, and flow or jet speed. The extent of material removal and the change in surface roughness as a function of the process parameters are addressed. Selected numerical and analytical models that are useful for automation and control purposes are discussed.

Abstract

The use of abrasive fluidized bed equipment in a broad range of manufacturing processes is reviewed. In particular, applications in deburring and finishing of complex-shaped metal components, in super-finishing of dies for injection molding, in cleaning and polishing of electronic devices, and in surface preparation of tungsten carbide milling tools are reviewed. Attention is focused on the effects of the most important process parameters, such as machining time, abrasive type and mesh size, and flow or jet speed. The extent of material removal and the change in surface roughness as a function of the process parameters are addressed. Selected numerical and analytical models that are useful for automation and control purposes are discussed. Finally, the industrial sustainability of the processes and equipment investigated is highlighted. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
