Experimental investigation of turning process parameters using Taguchi Method for mild steel (Review Completed - Accepted)

The Optimization of Multi response is now-a-days mostly used optimization technique which is better than single response optimizing technique because all the output is affected at a time by all the input factors .The objective of this project work is to determine the optimal setting of cutting parameters (speed(N)m/min , depth of cut(d) mm , feed(f)mm/rev, Nose Radius(r)mm) to minimize surface roughness(Ra) . In this work, Ferrous (Mild Steel) workpiece and Non-Ferrous (Aluminium) work pieces are turned on automatic HMT lathe by using High Speed Steel tool. . In order to produce any product with desired quality by machining, proper selection of process parameters is essential. This can be accomplished by Taguchi approach. This study highlights use of Taguchi experiment design to optimize the multi response parameters on turning operation. For this experiment Taguchi design of experiment was carried out to collect the data for surface roughness. The results indicate the optimum values of the input factors and the results are conformed by a confirmatory test
