Optimization of Cutting Parameters for High Speed End Milling of Single Crystal Silicon by Diamond Coated Tools with Compressed Air Blowing Using RSM
This paper presents the thorough experimental analysis on high speed end milling of single crystal silicon using diamond coated tools. Experiments were conducted on CNC milling machine. The design of the experiments was based on the central composite design (CCD) technique of Design Expert software. Response Surface Methodology (RSM) was used to develop mathematical imperial model to establish a correlation between machining parameters (cutting speed, feed and depth of cut) and machined surface roughness in high speed end milling of single crystal silicon using 2mm diameter diamond coated tools. The optimum machining parameters were determined using the optimization tool of Design Expert software based on the desirability function. Finally, confirmation tests were performed to validate the developed model.
