Abstract: Low plasticity burnishing (LPB®) is an innovative method which provides deep and stable compressive residual stresses. It improves surface characteristic such as low and high cycle fatigue strength, surface finish, microhardness, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, etc. The objective of the multi parametric process optimization for LPB is to find out appropriate levels of process variables i.e. ball diameter, pressure, speed, initial surface roughness and number of passes for achieving optimum values of surface roughness, hardness and fatigue life simultaneously. Considering multiple output responses in the present study, multi response optimization is essential. This paper deals with multi objective LPB process optimization problem of response characteristics with Utility concept for AISI 4340 steel alloy. LPB® is a registered trademark of Lambda Technologies group.
