Key capabilities of various MAAF process.

Process Aim Benefits
BEMRF To create a flexible bush at the end of magnetorheological polishing tool Any freeform surface can be finished by maintaining proper gap
MRFF Use of different types of MR fluid like chemical based, water based and oil based Very hard material like titanium can be finished upto nanometric level
PMT Use of permanent magnet instead of electromagnet Heating effect due to electromagnet coils can be avoided and soft diamagnetic copper alloy can be finished
MFAF A magnetic fixture for permanent magnet was created for titanium workpiece It can be made possible to concentrate all the magnetic lines on the workpiece
MRAH Combination of conventional honing process with MR effect of MRF technology Finishing time can be reduced by rotating the job with MR effect
R-MRAFF Rotation of permanent magnet fixture along with reciprocating motion of MR fluid High finishing rate and uniform finishing of all faces
