Sarma, Sushanta (2011) Parametric optimization of turning operation on stainless steel using a carbide tool. BTech thesis.
The term microturning is used to refer to operation processes occurring at dimensions of 1 to 999 micrometres. Stainless steel is a widely used material in day to day applications. In this case, a carbide tool has been used to machine stainless steel. The machining parameters are cutting speed, feed and depth of cut. The main aim is to understand the optimum settings of these parameters to reduce the machining forces, namely the feed force, the thrust force and the cutting force. To better understand these effects, experiments were carried out on a lathe and the machining forces measured with a dynamometer. The mode of machining was chosen as wet machining. The Taguchi method and ANOVA were used to analyse the obtained results. The statistical software MINITAB was then used to confirm the results obtained from statistical analysis.
