Oil and gas sector products cold working process

WithA.I. Keksin, I.A. Filipenko

This article considers the issue of modernizing oil and gas sector production equipment that is effected by introduction of state-of-the art engineering processes (cold working). One of such processes is magnetic abrasive finishing (MAF). In the process of MAF, total temperature in the working zone amounts to approximately ТMAF = 30 ÷ 40°C; it has a positive impact on products surface quality. This fact was exemplified by cutting instruments used for cutting internal threads.
