Coated abrasives are extensively used for manual operations such us cleaning, deburring, polishing, etc. With the trend towards increased production rates, demands on coated abrasive belts are becoming increasingly severe. . Experimental investigations are to be made to know the effects of the process parameters on the performance of the surface belt grinding process. It is necessary to investigate the effect of flexing along with other input process parameters on output. In the present work the Taguchi’s experimental design method is used for performing the belt grinding process on the stainless steel AISI 304 and optimizing the process parameters. Thus, this research aims at right choice of flexing and grinding parameters for the coated abrasive belts. The results were further analysed by Taguchi’s signal to noise ratio for finding the optimum process parameters.
