ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT: This study was carried out to understand micro-milling of MILD STEEL material with flat end mill and consisted of three stages: experimental work, analysis and multi objective optimization. In the first stage (experimental work), micro-milling experiments were carried out using Taguchi method. The effects of spindle speed, feed per tooth and depth of cut on MRR and surface roughness were investigated. The effect of control factors on responses was determined by analysis of variance. In the third stage (multi objective optimization), responses were optimized simultaneously using by MINITAB (VERSION 16. 0) analyzing software.
