Corrective Abrasive Polishing Processes for Freeform Surface

By Xun Chen


Traditionally, abrasive finishing process only focused on producing excellent surface\ud finish on regular form shapes. Ever increasing demands in freeform features in aerospace, energy and\ud medicine applications require abrasive finishing technology not only provides excellent surface finish\ud but also is capable to correct the errors on freeform surfaces. The paper presents current development\ud of corrective polishing technology for freeform surfaces
