Optimization Of Turning Process Parameters In The Machining Of An Accumulator (Mdn-250) Using Taghuchi’s Design Of Experiments
This study was conducted to investigate the optimization of process parameters in the internal turning operation of
an accumulator made up of MDN-250, so as to get an improved Ra value by using Taguchi’s Design of experiments. The
input parameters, namely spindle speed, feed rate and depth of cut are optimized based on the ANOVA coupled with the
Taguchi method. Taguchi’s L9 orthogonal array was used for the experiment. Response table for signal to noise ratio is used
for the analysis to produce the best output and accordingly the correlation between the input parameters and the roughness
evaluating parameter Ra is developed.
