Abstract

The article presents the current state of knowledge on the use of magnetorheological fluids for finishing processes. The paper descsribes the type of the materials and surfaces to be machined and the composition of the magnetorheological fluids used in this area. The most interesting applications were described in more detail, paying particular attention to the schematic diagram of the test stands, obtained results of experimental tests and the results of roughness measurements of the surfaces exposed to magnetically controlled fluids. The article also describes the directions of the newest experimental and simulation research on the application of magnetorheological fluids in the field.

Marzena Sutowska received her MSc degree in Mechanics and Machine Design and PhD degree in Machinery Construction and Operation from Koszalin University of Technology, in 2002 and 2009, respectively. Since 2006 to 2013 she was a scientific and technical specialist (2012–2013 – she held the position of Head of the Fundamental Research Team) in Unconventional HydroJetting Technology Institute at the Koszalin University of Technology. Since 2014 she has didactic-research position in the Unconventional HydroJetting Technology Center at the Koszalin University of Technology, where currently she works as an Assistant Professor (2015 – held the duties of Director of the Centre). Her scientific work focuses on modern processing processes, including the curvilinear machining of various materials using a high-pressure abrasive water jet, as well as on the analysis and evaluation of surface quality obtained as a result of the impact of the water and abrasives on the processed material. She has published scientific papers in international and national journals, monographs chapters as well as conference proceedings.

Paweł Sutowski received his MSc degree in Mechanics and Machine Design and PhD (with honors) degree in Machinery Construction and Operation from Koszalin University of Technology, in 2001 and 2008, respectively. Since 2008 he has didactic-research position in the Department of Production Engineering at the Koszalin University of Technology, where currently he works as an Assistant Professor in production planning and control team. His scientific work focus on problems concerning quality and efficiency control of machining processes by monitoring and diagnostic output signals. In his work, he uses modern signal acquire and converting unit systems. The most important in his work are non-destructive testing (NDT) methods with the use of acoustic signal and others. He has participated in national research projects, presenting results of his work at international and national conferences. He has published scientific papers in international and national journals, book chapters, as well as conference proceedings. He is also the co-author of one monograph. In his professional work he was also experience in domestic and foreign industry. He was a CAD designer (Satrorius AG in Germany, GIPO Corp. in Denmark and Poland), as well as software programmer and commercialize (ZETO SA in Poland).
