Abstract

Article PreviewArticle PreviewIn this paper, the optimization of surface roughness, cutting force, feed force and tool life in a turning operation was investigated by using Taguchi method and fuzzy logic. The experiment were conducted under varying cutting speeds, feed rates, depths of cut and noses radius. An orthogonal array, the signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio, grey relational analysis, grey-fuzzy reasoning grade and analysis of variance were employed to the study the performance characteristics in the turning AISI D2. Experimental results have shown that machining performance characteristics in turning process can be improved effectively through the combination of Taguchi method and fuzzy logic.
