Optimization of Multipass Turning Parameters by Genetic Algorithm
Optimization of cutting parameters is one of the key obstacles for CAD/CAM integration. In this work optimum cutting parameters, the best sequence, number, and type of passes of turning operation are determined by Genetic Algorithm (GA). Proposed optimization strategy ensures that no constraint will be violated at the optimum condition and determines the optimum number and type of passes such as rough, finish and semi-finish passes to complete a multipass turning operation. Here objective function is the unit production cost and constraints are limits of cutting force, power, tool life, stability condition, tool chip interface temperature, surface finish, feed rate to depth of cut ratio and the available rotational speed of spindle of machine tool.
