Analysis on Multi Responses in Face Milling of Ammc Using Fuzzy-Taguchi Method


In this paper, Fuzzy-Taguchi Method has been used to identify the optimal combination of influential factors by analyzing the multi responses in the face milling. Milling experiment has been performed on AMMC (Aluminium Metal Matrix Composite), according to Taguchi orthogonal array (L27) for various combinations of influential parameters: speed, feed, depth of cut and coolant. Fuzzy logic is applied for the analysis of experimental response data of vibrations, temperature, surface roughness and resultant forces. The Fuzzy grade is calculated from this data and Fuzzy grade is optimized using Taguchi method in order to get the optimal parameter values, and also influence of parameters on individual responses is studied using Taguchi S/N ratio analysis. This work is useful for analysis of machining parameters in face milling.
