Finishing is the final operation after a part is sized and shaped. Currently in high tech industries, there is a demand for nano level surface finishing of components. This process is done to improve the surface finish, to remove the recast layer, or to remove surface and sub-surface defects. The result is low friction, longer product life, and low power requirements. Equally important is the aesthetic aspect of the product. This subject is growing very fast from the technology as well as a science point of view. Books on this subject are very limited, particularly those ones that deal with both the science as well as the technology aspects.


"The book delivers comprehensive knowledge in the subject of finishing and polishing processes. It covers not only fundamental work principles but also the process specific applications for basic and advanced finishing and polishing processes. State-of-the-art hybrid nanofinishing processes are the highlights of the book. It is an excellent book for UG and PG students and a unique handbook for industrial professionals."
