In this project, the grinding disc will be mounted on the vertical spindle of a 3 axis Computer Numerical Control (CNC) milling machine, with brass mounted at an incline angle. The aim of this project is to evaluate the performance of both flap and fibre discs and results are based on the polished brass surface roughness (Ra), normal force measured and material removal rate (MRR). The experiment set up will follow closely to how an operator performs his polishing process. Unfortunately, there is no available research or technical literature on the selected grinding disc’s performance and disc selection was based on information provided in the catalogue.
