ABSTRACT
This paper presents a study of the Taguchi design application to optimize surface quality in a CNC end milling operation. The present study includes feed per tooth, cutting speed and radial depth of cut as control factors. An orthogonal array of L9 was used and the ANOVA analyses were carried out to identify the significant factors affecting the surface roughness. The optimal cutting combination was determined by seeking the best surface roughness (response) and signal-to-noise ratio. The study was carried-out by machining a hardened steel block (steel 1.2738) with tungsten carbide coated tools. The results led to the minimum of arithmetic mean surface roughness of 1.662 μm, being the radial depth of cut the most influent parameter, with 64% of contribution for the workpiece surface finishing.
