Optimization for an efficient and highly productive turning process
The required quality of the product arises from the customer preferences and functional requirements of the product and is determined mostly by the machining operation. Properly selected machining parameters in machining processes are of great importance for improving process efficiency and product quality. The aim of this paper is to find cutting parameters with which above mentioned process and product characteristics will be achieved. Experiments were performed according to Box-Behnken design of experiments. Influential input variables were cutting speed, feed per revolution and depth of cut and output variables were surface roughness, power consumption and material removal rate. Multi-objective optimization function was developed to find the machining parameters with which the lowest power consumption, the best surface quality and the greatest material removal rate will be achieved.
