Study of Process Parameters on Machining Process Using Single Point Cutting Tool

Amber Batwara


This research work studies the influence of cutting process parameters used in single point cutting tool based machining operations. In this study design of experiment methodology is used for some qualitative outcome. Taguchi method is used for experiment design. It is solved using ANSYS Explicit Dynamics software. ANOVA analysis is also performed in this study using Minitab software. Results show that most critical factor which affects stress generated during cutting operations are rake angle of tool and feed rate. In this study model equations are also generated for further analysis using linear regression modelling technique using Minitab software.
