An An Investigation on Surface Roughness and Tool Wear In Milling Operation of XW-41 Steel
In this project has focused on the comparison of cutting parameters for XW-41 (SKD11) Tool material using Deckel Maho DMU 50 CNC Milling Machine. Computer Numerical Control (CNC). The tool wear and surface roughness are measured in order to assess the surface quality of the workpiece after the milling process. The objective of this research is to determine the effects of machining parameters (spindle speed, depth of cut and feed rates) on the surface roughness and tool wear using respond surface method (RSM) on the CNC Milling Machine. This paper presents an optimization method of the cutting parameters (spindle speed, feed rate and depth of cut) in XW-41 steel to achieve minimum the surface roughness and tool wear. The experimental layout was designed based on the Respond surface methodology (RSM) and analysis of variance (ANOVA) was performed to identify the effect of the cutting parameters on the response
variables. The results showed that spindle speed, feed rate and depth of cut are the most important parameter influencing the surface roughness and tool wear.
