The quality of the machining is measured from surface finished and it is considered as the most important aspect in composite machining. An appropriate and optimum machining parameters setting is crucial during machining operation in order to enhance the surface quality. The objective of this research is to analyze the effect of machining parameters on the surface quality of CFRP-Aluminium in CNC end milling operation with PCD tool. The milling parameters evaluated are spindle speed, feed rate, and depth of cut. The L9 Taguchi orthogonal arrays, signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio, and analysis of variance (ANOVA) are employed to analyze the effect of these cutting parameters. The analysis of the results indicates that the optimal cutting parameters combination for good surface finish is high cutting speed, low feed rate, and low depth of cut.

Abstract


The quality of the machining is measured from surface finished and it is considered as the most important aspect in composite machining. An appropriate and optimum machining parameters setting is crucial during machining operation in order to enhance the surface quality. The objective of this research is to analyze the effect of machining parameters on the surface quality of CFRP-Aluminium in CNC end milling operation with PCD tool. The milling parameters evaluated are spindle speed, feed rate, and depth of cut. The L9 Taguchi orthogonal arrays, signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio, and analysis of variance (ANOVA) are employed to analyze the effect of these cutting parameters. The analysis of the results indicates that the optimal cutting parameters combination for good surface finish is high cutting speed, low feed rate, and low depth of cut.
