Abstract: Media finishing is carried out by the means of media particles which are also known as abrasives to polish the desired surface of a work-piece. The outcome of a media finishing process is mainly based on the selections of the proper media and work-piece and the operating parameters of the machine itself. In this project, the author focused on the design and development of a media finishing device which functions to polish mechanical components. The media finishing device was attached onto a CETR Tribometer. With the aid of the rotary drive in the CETR Tribometer, mechanical components were then polished by means of abrasive particles. This report documents on the entire development involved from the initial start-up to the final stage of the project. The report highlights sections on the design and fabrication of the prototype as well as the testing results of the prototype. The designing segment of the prototype emphasizes on several conceptual and embodiment design developments and ideas generation. The subsequent section of the report covers on the various experimental procedures and input parameters. Last but not least, results attained from experiment runs and future work on the design of the prototype as well as the different input parameters will be discussed.
