It is very difficult to polish non-magnetic materials by the magnetic abrasive polishing (MAP) process because magnetic force is required for MAP, but the magnetic force for non.magnetic materials is low. In this study, we aimed to develop a magnetic array table and control the magnetic polarity such that the magnetic force can be increased for the MAP of non-magnetic materials. The newly designed magnetic array table has 32 electro magnets, and the magnetic polarity of each electro-magnet can be easily controlled by changing the electric polarity. It was analytically verified that the magnetic flux density of non-magnetic materials can be varied by varying the applied magnetic polarity.
