The vibratory finishing process is widely used for finishing metal components. An experimental investigation is reported on the factors affecting the metal removal and resultant surface roughness during vibratory finishing including the influence of chemical solutions. The effect of process parameters such as media size and impact frequency is studied by measuring the contact forces. A method to investigate the effect of chemical solution and to optimize the processing time to achieve desired resultant surface roughness is presented.
