Magnetic Abrasive Finishing (MAF) is an advanced finishing process in which the cutting force is controlled by magnetic field and it provides a high level of surface finish and close tolerances for wide range of industrial application. In this study the parameter that affects surface roughness in MAF process on a brass shaft of CuZn37 have been examined experimentally. These parameters are: intensity of the magnetic field, work-piece velocity and finishing time. It has been shown that the intensity of magnetic field has the most effect on finishing process, a higher intensity in magnetic field, results in a higher change in surface roughness, increasing finishing time results in decreased surface roughness and a lower work-piece velocity leads to a lower surface roughness. Finally Artificial Neural Network (ANN) prediction of surface roughness are carried out and compared with experiment. It was found that the coefficient of multiple determinations (R2-value) between the experimental and ANN predicted data is equal to about 0.999, therefore, indicating the possibility of ANN as a strong tool in simulating and prediction of surface roughness in MAF process.
