Study on Parameter Optimization for Polishing
Polishing is a manufacturing process for surface-smoothing. To minimize surface damage and defects, gentle polishing conditions are required. The main objective of this research is to determine the effect of polishing conditions by using Taguchi method , and to optimize the process parameters to obtain the best surface possible. The experimental results indicate that a set of optimal polishing conditions for producing work surface within the range of parameters evaluated, double oblique polishing path, relatively high speed and low feed rate are desirable for improve surface.
