Article PreviewArticle PreviewArticle PreviewA research was conducted for the optimization in the drilling process of KFRP stacked, with multiple performance characteristics based on the orthogonal array with Taguchi-grey-fuzzy method. The experimental study was conducted under varying the drilling process parameters (feeding speed (mm/min) and cutting speed (m/min)) and tool geometries (point geometry and point angle (degree)). The optimized multiple performances characteristics were thrust force, torque and surface roughness. The quality characteristics of thrust force, torque and surface roughness were smaller-is-better. The experimental design used L 18 orthogonal array with two replications. Experimental results have shown that machining performance in the drilling process can be improved effectively through this method.
