Reducing energy use is a major consideration in green manufacturing. Ultrasonic vibration has the advantage of improving machining performance. This work presents an experimental investigation on magnetic compound fluid (MCF) polishing with and without ultrasonic vibration and estimates reductions in polishing energy consumption and surface roughness due to ultrasonic vibration during the machining process. A series of ultrasonic vibration-assisted MCF polishing (UVAMP) tests was carried out for brass H62, and the normal and tangential polishing forces, surface roughness and material removal rate of the traditional MCF polishing (MP) and UVAMP of brass were investigated for various machining parameters. The polishing energy consumptions during traditional MCF polishing and UVAMP were calculated and analyzed from the perspective of the energy of the polishing process. Results indicate that the use of UVAMP considerably reduces energy consumption and surface roughness during the polishing of brass. The adoption of UVAMP therefore has the potential to improve the efficiency and quality of polishing processes and offers a practical solution for the greener manufacturing of brass.
