Cutting Parameters Optimization by Using Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO)


Article Preview

Cutting parameters play an essential role in the economics of machining. In this paper, particle swarm optimization (PSO), a novel optimization algorithm for cutting parameters optimization (CPO), was discussed comprehensively. First, the fundamental principle of PSO was introduced; then, the algorithm for PSO application in cutting parameters optimization was developed; thirdly, cutting experiments without and with optimized cutting parameters were conducted to demonstrate the effectiveness of optimization, respectively. The results show that the machining process was improved obviously.
