The efficient polishing of surfaces is very important in mould and die industry. Fine abrasive processes are widely used in industry for the first steps for the production of tools of high quality in terms of finishing accuracy, form and surface integrity. While manufacturing of most components requires surface finishing in terms of roughness values, the nature of material removal and process mechanics is not clear by fine abrasive finishing on the polishing roughness level. The knowledge and an understanding of the material removal mechanism in fine abrasive processes is a crucial prerequisite. In this study, the influence of polishing parameters and type of polishing media on fine abrasive surface finishing is investigated. Experimental study is covering 2D rotational surfaces that is widespread used in mould and dies industry. Application of it is essential for process intelligent control, condition monitoring and quality inspection.
