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.
