Effect of Cutting Parameters on MRR and Surface Roughness in Turning EN-8
Pages : 100-104
Surface finish is one of the prime requirements of customers for machined parts. The present paper presents an experimental study to investigate the effects of cutting parameters like spindle speed, feed and depth of cut on surface finish and material removal rate on EN-8. Taguchi methodology has been applied to optimize cutting parameters. The results showed that the spindle speed (the most significant factor) contributed 63.90%, depth of cut (second most significant factor) contributed only 11.32% and feed rate contribution was least with 8.33% for Ra. The contribution for feed and RPM was 60.91% and 29.83%.whereas the depth of cut contributed only 7.82% for material removal rate.
