A Review on Optimization of Surface Roughness during Dry Turning Operation of AISI 1045 Steel

Mohan Singh Rajpoot, Shobhit Shobhit Sharma


It is a well-known fact that manufacturing industries are repeatedly challenged for attaining higher productivity and high-quality products in order to stay competitive. The preferred shape, size and finished ferrous and non-ferrous materials are usually produced through turning with the help of cutting tools that moved past the work piece in a machine tool. From the various cutting processes, turning process is one of the most important and most applied metal removal processes in a real manufacturing environment. The surface roughness of the machined parts is one of the most important product quality characteristics which refer to the deviation from the nominal surface. Surface roughness plays a vital role in many applications such as precision fits, fastener holes, aesthetic requirements and parts subject to fatigue loads. Surface roughness imposes one of the most significant constraints for the selection of cutting parameters and machine tools in development of a process. Surface finish in turning has been found to be influenced in varying amounts by a number of factors such as feed rate, work material characteristics, work hardness, unstable built-up edge, cutting speed, depth of cut, cutting time, tool nose radius and tool cutting edge angles, stability of machine tool and work piece setup, chatter, and use of cutting fluids.
