Evaluation of process paramters of various materials by turning operation using different methodology techniques-A review

Amit Nautam Darji, Keyur V. Parmar


The use of engineering materials has increased to a great extent in industries. So it is required to find the optimum parameters in order to have easy and economical machining. Turning operation is most important in the machining process. Especially of hard materials it is difficult sometimes to do so. For better results, the selection of proper process parameters is very important. This paper presents, the effect of process parameters on various materials while performing turning operation and been validated by various methodology techniques. It also highlights on the effect of input controllable parameters over the required output values. Taguchi was used to design experiment and to study its significance of cutting parameters ANOVA is carried out. Taguchi gives systematic simple approach and efficient method for the optimum operating conditions.
