Abstract: The objective of this research work is to optimize the machining variables of AISI 304 austenitic stainless steel during wet turning operation. The input parameters considered are depth, feed and cutting speed. The output response considered is cutting force. Taguchi technique is used to find the optimum machining conditions for cutting force. ANOVA is used to determine the effect of input variables on the cutting force. ANOVA results indicated that the most significant variable affecting the cutting force during the wet turning process is depth of cut.
