Abstract: The present study revolves around the possibility of setting machining parameters in the drilling of composites of aluminum matrix (LM6/Fly ash) using the signal to noise ratio analysis. The aim of this work is to consider, the impact of input parameters, feed, speed, drill and percentage of composite material reinforcement on thrust force during AMCs drilling. AMCs were manufactured by the stir casting process with LM6 aluminium alloy as matrix material and fly ash as reinforcement material. Investigations were directed on a CNC vertical machining center for estimating thrust force. The Taguchi strategy for trial configuration is a generally admitted system employed for delivering great items requiring less effort. In the same way, L27 orthogonal array is employed for the analyses. The response table, graphs and variance analyzes are used to demonstrate the potential environment and the effects of machining parameters. It is evident that there is a tremendous improvement in the drilling procedure by using this methodology.
