Abstract: Present work is aimed at machining parameters optimization during turning of fly ash and silicon carbide reinforced Al 7075 alloy by Taguchi method of experimental design. Taguchi L16 design is selected for the design of experiments. In this study, machining is done by turning the reinforced alloy with uncoated tungsten carbide inserts tool in dry condition. Cutting parameters feed, cutting speed, and depth of cut are varied to observe the effect on responses surface roughness and material removal rate. As per Taguchi’s analysis, surface roughness is more sensitive to feed whereas material removal rates are highly influenced by cutting speed.
Keyword: Metal matrix composite, Surface roughness, Material removal rate, ANOVA.
Scope of the Article: Design Optimization of Structures.
